Question Show specific tour posters??

I'm headed out to the show in Atlanta this Saturday... It's an outdoor show and I usually keep a small poster tube handy for tour/show posters but it looks like they prohibit almost everything in the gates at Centennial.

So on that note - does anyone know if there will be/have been show specific posters throughout the tour? Or is it just like a generic poster I can grab off line for the same price later?

Sadly a lot of acts don't even do show prints anymore

there has been a specific poster for each show - so your choices are:

1. get one at the show
2. hope they don't sell out at the show and the remainder go onto the online store afterwards.
3. the artist often sells a certain amount of prints - possibly at a higher price. (keep a look out for who it is)

with number 1 they possibly may sell you a tube for a few $ or something - if they have any.

I think I'll try to get my tube into the show in the event that it's raining. I defintely don't want to walk around for 4 hours protecting the thing if it's limited release! Current poster tube has been to like 25-30 shows with me and not been an issue thus far so hopefully i can get it in again!

there is a specific thread about most of the posters so far in the collections & recordings sub forum called "2015 20th anniversary posters". the foos will probably tweet about it when they state the set times on the day anyway

I've been to three shows this tour and purchased a date/city specific poster at each for $30 each. Two shows also had a $100 option. Two shows gave me a plastic bag thing and the other gave me a rubber band. I think there's 250-300 posters at each gig. 2/3 of mine are awesome. Good luck!

Got my poster tube in no problem... managed to score one of the foil posters. At first I thought there were a few hundred, but apparently there were only 30 per some of the ebay stuff I've seen!

They actually had plastic slips there that I put over it... and then I garbage bagged the tube itself and put a rubber band on it to seal the deal! In hindsight I wish I would have bought one of the standard posters too for $30... wasn't aware those were also limited run and numbered...

Haven't made it home to even unroll it or find out the number yet. I'd expect it's a pretty low number though since I was like the first one to the stand!? This isn't mine (I don't resell them - I frame them and keep em!) but it's the same as the one I got:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Foo-Fighters...item46423c255b

I had to deny the first one the lady handed me because the corner was majorly messed up... I wasn't going to spend $100 and go to all that trouble with the tube for a bent up poster!?!

Great show!

Am I totally lost, or was there not a poster made for the Kansas City show this year?

It will be on the bottom of the poster somewhere for the number out of 30, judging by that ebay flipper its the bottom right.

Nice though, looks cool.

The foils always have a really limited version - probably up to 50 tops of any. The normal edition is normally up to 400, most likely a few less.

That's the foil version, the normal version is the same just on normal paper.


edit: although the foil looks nice in most cases, you do notice if there's a scratch on it or something a lot easier though which is a downside to it.

That's the OKC poster, for Oklahoma City I really don't think that they made one for Kansas City :/

Wish I could've got an Atlanta poster.. The foil posters are cool. The people who snagged those are lucky.

Yes that's it! I think in all of my excitement of getting to touch Dave that night that I totally missed any opportunity to get a poster. I'll take the fact that I got to shake his hand as they rick rolled the Westboro Baptist Church over the poster I guess

Touching Dave's hand or poster? Which would you really pick?!

Exactly! At least I can try to find a poster on eBay, I don't think that I'm going to be able to bid on touching a legend's hand anytime soon LOL

No you're fine! I scrolled through the rest of your photographs and was able to find the KC one thanks for your help!
