Picked this up last night at the Brooklyn show. There was an outdoor merch table and you could buy this without a ticket. For the upcoming Newark NJ shows i'll bet you can do the same thing. They had heavy cardboard envelopes to keep them in. Gary Clarke Jr. joined the Stones for a song, he isn't the 2nd coming of Jimi Hendrix as some claim, but he sure can play the blues!

Yup, three hundy, there was also a S/N litho of the new album cover by the Stones art director Walton Ford for $300, I didn't groove to that one at all.

That's the best design he could come up with? And a run of 1000? Lame. Definitely not worth the $300 in my opinion. Jeeze, it's their 50th anniversary. Certainly should have been worth some extra effort.

My guess is he had didn't have free reign, & had constraints from the band.

:lol:

Maybe Ernie Cefalu and/or John Pasche should get co-credit for this poster?

Seriously, why hire an artist like Fairey if you're going to dictate the design? I'm sure another graphic artist could have done the job just as well.

I drove eight hours (each way) for this show and could not bring myself to buy the poster.

Sure the design has minimal creativity going on, but I could have talked myself into maybe $75. No way at $300.

I think the dramatically overpriced tickets helped sell a lot of merch though. There's the drop-in-the-bucket mentality, combined with the "If I'm paying this much for a ticket I'm definitely walking out of here with a t-shirt" thing.

To think they'll make $600,000 off of two 1,000 run posters is crazy. And testament to Jagger the businessman I guess.
