    Sex Pistols 1978 Unused Final-Tour Concert Ticket, Tulsa, OK. An unused ticket from the infamous final Sex Pistols U.S. tour when the English punk band played a lot of shows in America's deep south, wishing for constant confrontation with rednecks and conservatives. This gig was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where one can just imagine how punk music was going over.

    Only a group as audacious as the Pistols would cross off an old price and stamp a higher price on their tickets. But that's what they did here, raising the admission from $2.50 to $3.50 by stamping it in red, twice. It's a good thing no alcoholic beverages were permitted, or who knows what would have happened. As you can see on the verso, this is ticket number 000854.

    This show was on Wednesday, January 11, 1978, and less than a week later, the band was history. They played their final show three days later in San Francisco, and then went their separate ways. Leader Johnny Rotten announced in a newspaper interview on January 18 that the group was kaput. Rotten changed his name back to his birth name, Johnny Lydon, and formed Public Image Limited later this year. Pistol Sid Vicious would survive for a year after this show with his heroin addiction, finally succumbing to it in February 1979.

    Measures 2 x 4 1/2" and grades to Very Good condition. Has a dinged and creased upper left corner. Surface crease over the first "L" in "Ballroom." A bit of warpage making it not completely flat on the left side of the ticket. Black-marker bleed-through seen on the verso. COA from Heritage Auctions.
