    Sex Pistols If You Want The Bans Lifted Tour Poster, Glitterbest LTD, 1977. This lot and the preceding were quickly put together to promote the Sex Pistols tour of the UK in December 1977. Presented in the ransom note cutout style is the rallying cry "If you want the bans lifted it's up to you," and just beneath is a reprint of a typewritten December 12th press statement by Glitterbest which announced the nine-date tour, starting just four days later on December 16th. Within those four days it appears that the tour had been shaved down to eight dates, as the December 22nd date has been crossed through and "CANCELLED BY METHODISTS" handwritten next to the venue information. It's fascinating piece of the Sex Pistols story, ready for display.

    The poster measures approximately 11.75' x 16.5", is printed on white paper and is in fair condition with areas of water staining and an area of loss at top center. There is a horizontal fold at center, possibly from mailing.
