    Description

    Thin Lizzy / Graham Parker 1977 Dallas, TX Concert Handbill. A handbill made on coated stock for a Thin Lizzy concert in Dallas originally scheduled at Moody Coliseum on the campus of Southern Methodist University (SMU). Turns out, it had to be moved to the multi-use Dallas Convention Center Theatre to meet with demand.

    Thin Lizzy had released their eighth album, Bad Reputation, the month before. (Its cover art serves as the artwork for the handbill.) The band was well loved and respected during this time, especially thanks to their 1976 hit LP, Jailbreak, which had their monstrous single, "The Boys Are Back In Town." For the Phil Lynott-fronted band, they were Dublin's hard rock prodigal sons.

    Supporting act Graham Parker had a new album to promote with his backing band, the Rumour, called Stick To Me. With a style made more for the American audience, Parker had a growing audience. Getting to open for Thin Lizzy was a golden opportunity.

    Measures 8 1/2" x 11" and grades to Very Good condition. Handling creases show up easily on black stock like this, but only when it's tilted at an angle to the light; the one exception might be to the upper right of the "Y" in "Lizzy," which has a couple of pinpoints of white color break. But viewed straight-on, most of the creasing is invisible and not an issue. COA from Heritage Auctions.
