    Description

    Grand Funk (Railroad) 1974 Tampa, FL Concert Poster. A Day-Glo poster for Grand Funk's appearance in Tampa as they toured behind their eighth album, Sailin' On, in 1974. Produced by wunderkind Todd Rundgren, the album features their #1 hit version of "The Loco-Motion." As was common in the day, critics savaged Grand Funk's albums, but that didn't deter fans showing en masse to their concerts.

    Co-led by guitarist Mark Farner and drummer Don Brewer, the trio expanded into a four-piece with the addition of keyboardist Craig Frost in 1972. Happy to bill themselves as an American band, they played for the people, not critics. They released another album in 1974, All the Girls in the World Beware!!!, which features the hit single, "Some Kind of Wonderful." Alas, this show was all about Sailin' On.

    Tampa Stadium was an open-air venue that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played until they moved into Raymond James Stadium (the site of where the Bucs won the Super Bowl in 2021). It could hold a little over 70,000 people.

    The "Concerts West" is a sticker, as is the Tampa box.

    Measures 14" x 22" and grades to Near Mint Minus condition for only a slightly dinged upper right corner, and even lesser lower left corner, and an invisible fingerprint in the black under the "Concerts West" sticker. COA from Heritage Auctions.
