    THEIR BRAND NEW SINGLE: "MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE"

    The Police 1979 Halloween Show in Austin, Texas Concert Poster. An outstanding-looking concert poster for the Police - Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland - appearing at the Municipal Auditorium in Austin, Texas for a Halloween show on Wednesday, October 31, 1979. The poster even calls this "A Bizarre Affair - Wear a Costume - If You Dare."

    The Cops were still an underground college-radio favorite at this point, with their debut album from eight months earlier having peaked at #23 in Billboard, and their brand new album, Reggatta de Blanc, destined to reach only #25. But once the 1980's and MTV got started, the rest of the band's career would be a high-speed Police chase.

    Measures 14" x 21" and grades to Very Good Plus for surface creasing in the black area, especially under "Guests" and to the upper left of Stewart Copeland's head, a tiny edge nick to the left of the "P" in "Police," and just a little bit of handling & creasing in various small places. COA from Heritage Auctions.
