Avid 1960's poster collector Andrew Hawley, from Vintage Rock Posters, announces his search for vintage 1969 Jimi Hendrix Charlotte Coliseum North Carolina concert posters. The same poster was used for the Hendrix Dorton Arena show in Raleigh. Hendrix played the Dorton Area in Raleigh on April 11th and the Charlotte Coliseum on May 9th. According to Hawley, “This was not Hendrix first Charlotte show. He played there as a backup artist to the teenage phenom group The Monkees. As expected, Hendrix and the Monkees were not a good match. Hendrix was actually booed at a gig in Forest Hills, New York in 1967 with the fans screaming for Davy Jones.”
Hawley continues, “The 22x28 inch cardboard boxing style poster used for both Raleigh and Charlotte shows were printed by The Globe Poster Company based in Baltimore, Maryland. Globe boxing style posters feature a standard promo photo of the Hendrix Experience surrounded by bright fluorescent orange clouds, and the band’s latest song titles. The posters use garish graphics and colors so they can seen from long distances. The posters were hung in places like barber shops, laundry mats, and department stores in Raleigh and Charlotte.”
Hawley will pay $3,000 cash for the Hendrix Charlotte or Hendrix Raleigh posters or any other 1967 to 1970 fillmore era Hendrix concert posters. Any condition would be accepted. Please call 310-346-1965 or email andrew at vintageconcertposterbuyer.com.
