    Description

    David Bowie Diamond Dogs-Era 1974 Minnesota Concert Poster. An original concert-advertising window card for Ziggy Stardust himself, David Bowie, performing at the St. Paul Civic Center in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota on Saturday night, October 5, 1974.

    SPECIAL NOTE: This poster was supposed to occupy a half-page in our Vintage Music Posters catalog and be auctioned on Saturday by our live auctioneer, but due to a miscommunication it fell into this Sunday sale. That's OK, we love our Sunday sales - can you say $8,125 for a 1981 Clash poster (last December, auction 41154)? - be we wanted our bidders to know that this poster should have gloriously shone in this auction's full-color catalog.

    Back to Bowie, this tour signaled the emergence of The Thin White Duke from underground cult sensation to international superstar, with his latest album, Diamond Dogs, having recently reached the Top 5 of Billboard magazine's album chart, his first big commercial success.

    Concert posters on Bowie are very scarce from this era, as his management company apparently believed more in radio, newsprint and other means of advertising. This one features a great shot of The Lad Insane gazing upwards with his famous early 70s hair style. All of these must have been thrown away afterwards, because this is the only specimen not only Heritage has ever had for sale, but most collectors have ever seen.

    Measures 14" x 22" and grades to Very Good condition with several spots of soiling on the front and verso, as well as chipping in spots, creasing (especially in the bottom right corner) and light/white moisture staining in the lower right as well. COA from Heritage Auctions.
