    Description

    New York Dolls Auditorium South Hall Concert Poster (1973). For a concert in Memphis, Friday, September 21. The poster shows a black and white shot of the band taken from the front cover of the Dolls' debut album, with wording "New York Dolls, A Band You're Going To Like Whether You Like It Or Not". The Dolls are supported by "Iggy and the Stooges". Measures 15.5" x 20.5". In Very Good condition, with .5" tear to bottom edge, 4" x 1.5" area of staining to the bottom left of the image, some general toning.

    This poster is particularly significant as David Johansen was arrested during this concert on charges of inciting a riot. According to an interview with The Guardian newspaper in 2006, David Johansen's version of events are humorously different "When we played in Memphis, I got dragged off the stage by the police and thrown in handcuffs. As we drove down Elvis Presley Boulevard in a police car, I asked them what I was being arrested for, and they said, 'Female impersonation.' That was no big deal. Shit like that used to happen to us all the time."
