    Description

    Ike & Tina Turner Hot Pink Day-Glo Concert Poster (1970).
    An original advertising window card for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue at the Seattle Center Arena on Friday, May 8, 1970. This poster is special for a number of reasons, most obviously being its bright florescent Day-Glo colors of pink, orange and yellow. Throw in black & white and you have a five-color, wickedly dynamic poster board for one of the most exciting performers in 60's & 70's rock. ("Lyman" is the only credit given for the poster's artwork.)

    Besides its visual appeal, this poster also has a robust composition, being an inch wider, half-an-inch taller and much thicker than most other standard 14x22's. It was made by the Washington Poster Co. (credited in the lower left white margin), a company known for making extra-thick boards in the Pacific Northwest in the late 60's and early 70's, perhaps to withstand all the rain.

    "Northwest Releasing & KOL Present," the poster says. "Ike & Tina Turner Revue," with Tina being such an obvious breakout star that there was no reason to picture anyone else... much like Janis Joplin a couple of years ahead of her. "Seattle Center Arena, Fri. May 8 - 8:30 PM. Tickets: Bon Marche & Suburban Outlets."

    This poster was printed using Day-Glo florescent inks, which really stand out in broad daylight. And then those inks take on a whole new appearance under a blacklight, those purple tube-lights that became all the rage in head shops and hippie pads in the late Sixties. Check out the additional photo of this poster under a blacklight, it adds quite a wow factor. Amazing how the yellow lettering turns to bright green, the pink turns to orange and the orange to a dull yellow!

    This poster measures 15" x 22.5" and is in gorgeous Near Mint condition. It would be straight mint except for one small pair of staple holes in each corner, barely visible. There's also one corner bump, a small ink smudge on the bottom margin, and the tiniest brown mark above Tina's right shoulder. This is all just full disclosure stuff; it's a museum-quality specimen. COA from Heritage Auctions.


    More Information: 1969 was the year that Ike & Tina opened for the Rolling Stones' landmark tour of America, and 1970 was the year they decided to backburner R&B songs, which Tina was tiring of, for rock & roll covers. The result was a charting single with the Beatles' "Come Together," a Top 40 hit with Sly & the Family Stone's "I Want to Take You Higher," and the recording of a Top 5 smash with Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary." What a time for the duo, and for Tina!
