    Faces / Genesis / ELO 1972 Reading, England Concert Handbill. Made on glossy stock on both sides, this handbill for the 1972 edition of the Reading Festival. This is a great document of when the Reading Festival (having previously held in Leeds and was more jazz-oriented), embracing artists that embodied progressive rock and hard rock stylings.

    For the 1972 edition, ELO (who had formed only a couple of years prior) performed. They only had their debut album out at the time. Genesis was about to release their fourth album (and second album with drummer Phil Collins), Foxtrot. The Faces were still together with Rod "The Mod" Stewart on lead vocals, Ronnie Wood on guitar, and Kenney Jones on drums, as well as bassist Ronnie Lane and keyboardist Ian McLagan. Other performers included Curved Air and Quintessence.

    Measures 5 5/8" x 8 1/4" and grades to Very Good condition. Was once folded in half horizontally, and the fold breaks the pink color and goes through "Camping Site." One-inch crease in lower right corner which also breaks color. Some more surface creasing which is common with glossy paper like this. Verso (the order-form side) shows the same effects and has the tiniest red mark in the "Special Weekend Tickets" box. COA from Heritage Auctions.
