Avid 1960's poster collector Andrew Hawley, from Vintage Rock Posters, announces his search for vintage Rolling Stones Farm Show Arena concert posters. The concert was held on June 19, 1964 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. According to Hawley, “The Farm Show Arena concert was the second to last performance of the Rolling Stones first U.S. tour. The concert was held on June 19, 1964. The tour supported the Rolling Stones’ first U.S. album The Rolling Stones.” Hawley adds, “It is hard to believe this concert was 48 years ago. The Harrisburg concert was a success but the following performance in New Haven, Connecticut was cancelled because of lack of ticket sales. Not even the famous local DJ Murray The K who was emceeing the New Haven show could save the Stones concert.”
Hawley continues, “Murray Poster Printing Company, located in New York City, was a leading printer of rock concert posters. Though the New Haven and Harrisburg shows were only one day apart, two distinctly different posters were created by Murray posters for each show. Each poster features the same Stones promo photo, but the color combinations are drastically different. Also, the New Haven poster features a large photo of Murray The K. Apparently 150 Rolling Stones Farm Show Arena posters were printed and hung locally around town. A Stones Farm Show concert poster was sold at a Harrisburg auction house a few years back.”
Hawley will pay $5,000 cash for the Stones 1964 Farm Show Arena poster or any other 1963 through 1966 vintage Rolling Stones concert poster. Any condition would be accepted. Please call 310-346-1965 or email andrew at vintageconcertposterbuyer.com.
