    Description

    The Kinks 1970 University of Maryland Jumbo Globe Concert Poster. A large, original cardboard window card advertising The Kinks and the Youngbloods performing two shows at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD on Saturday, February 28, 1970.

    An attractive, unusual concert poster both for its tall, thin size and its pleasant light-blue coloring. The Kinks were touring off their latest LP, Arthur (or the decline and fall of The British Empire), featuring the popular radio hit "Victoria."

    America was hungry for the Kinks, as they had been banned from performing in the U.S. for the last few years of the Sixties due to unruly behavior. Meanwhile, Jesse Colin Young and his Youngbloods were riding on the crest of their Top 5 pop hit (and emerging anthem) "Get Together" from the previous summer.

    First time Heritage has ever offered this rare poster for sale. Measures 17" x 30 ¾" and grades to Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.


    More Information: Poster has tiny dots of white paint splatters on the left side, most prominently in the lower left quadrant. Not a single one is on their name or in their picture circle, however. Two small nail holes at the top, one in the bottom right corner and four more smaller ones in the bottom left area. Every single one of these are in the white margin. Poster has toning from age and being exposed to light. The corners have different degrees of expected damage, with only the upper left having a bigger (three-inch) crease. A four-inch crease goes from the left-center edge through the first four letters of "Young." A five-inch light water stain is present in the upper white margin above "University." A 3/8" tear is present in the lower right white margin to the right of "Fairfax, Va." A bit of black smudging runs through "HIE COL" in "Ritchie Coliseum," a printer's defect. And there is light brown foxing found in the white background of the lettering for "Young Bloods."
