    Description

    Grateful Dead Original Mississippi River Festival Concert Poster (Concert Art, 1980). A 12.5" x 19.5" poster for their August 16, 1980, performance in Edwardsville, Illinois, printed in two colors and featuring the skeleton in a red robe playing a violin (Blues for Allah-style). Presented by Music Theatre, the reserved seats were $9.50 and lawn tickets were $7.00 (remember those prices?) A little research shows that a thunderstorm hit during the concert but most reviewers rank this performance among their best, especially the acoustic "Iko Iko" encore. Very Good condition with tack holes at top and bottom (slight paper loss at upper left corner) and minor surface flaws.
