    Description

    The Police 1978 Outlandos d'Amour Tour Promo Poster. A mostly Day-Glo, silkscreened poster from the Police's first tour of the US, known to be used for their Philadelphia show and others. This was when the Police were a punk-inspired group, but one that infused a lot of pop, jazz, (and especially) reggae influences in their sound. Their 1978 debut features the hits "Roxanne" and "Can't Stand Losing You."

    Traveling the USA in a van, the first US Police tour included two nights in November 1977 at a small Washington DC music club called the Atlantis. Later the Atlantis Club became the original 9:30 Club, which has since changed location and become one of the top concert venues in the country. This incredibly rare poster was originally given by the band to a local D.C. record store owner who was backstage with them that evening.

    A very large and well cared for poster, it remains in Very Good Plus condition. Very few of these made, and one of the earliest and rarest Police concert posters. It would be hard to find a finer example of this stunning beauty. Measures to 30" x 40". In Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.


    More Information: Many spots of creasing, fold marks, toning/foxing, and wear.
