    Description

    Nirvana / Mudhoney 1992 Portland and Seattle Double-Sided Concert Poster. One poster advertising shows on both sides, and both shows were rescheduled due to the birth of Kurt Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, on August 18th, 1992. There are a few known variants of this poster that were produced at the time. This double-sided version tends to come up less frequently.

    One side promotes a show originally scheduled for August 22 at Portland Meadows, but it was bumped back to September 10th, right after the band played the MTV Video Music Awards (the show where they began their performance with a then-unreleased "Rape Me" and bassist Krist Novoselic hit his head with his bass). For the show that ended up happening in September, Helmet played in place of Mudhoney. On the other side, the aforementioned show at Portland Meadows is listed, but so is a show at the Seattle Center Coliseum on August 23. That show ended up being rescheduled for September 11th, with Helmet and Fitz of Depression supporting.

    Both designed by Mike King. Offset printed. Measures 11" x 17". In Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.


    More Information: Has many spots of soiling, pin holes, tape residue, creasing, and handling wear.
