    The "Closer to Home" Tour

    Grand Funk Railroad 1970 Honolulu, Hawaii Halloween Concert Poster. A fun Hawaiian concert poster for Grand Funk when they were one of the hottest bands in the land... October 31, 1970, Halloween night in Honolulu. Great graphics on this piece, starting with the vibrant purple & orange colors. Then the cartoon steals all the attention, depicting the Funksters on the road - or rather, on their own train - with sold-out cities in their wake, including Houston, Ft. Worth and New Orleans. A Sunbum production, Hawaii's second-largest concert promoter... and down at the bottom it even says, "a sunbum poster."

    Grand Funk was on fire, releasing a new album on Capitol Records about every six months at this point. Their most recent was the multiplatinum Closer to Home, their first Top 10 LP. Two weeks after this poster's show, they would release Live Album, which would fare even better, a testament to the band's prowess as a live hard-rock act in the early 70's on a par with Led Zeppelin, at least commercially.

    Measures 15 1/8" x 22 ¼" and grades to Very Good Plus. Was once quarter-folded, and the folds show much more on the reverse. The very tiniest bit of seam split, for just one inch, under the "N" in "Funk," and it's not threatening to go any further. Also, for some reason, there's about six tack holes along the bottom white margin... but none at the top. It's basically in great shape, and about the only thing visible on the front is the one horizontal crease across the poster's center. COA from Heritage Auctions.
