This beautiful poster was made to promote the concert of B.B. King, Moby Grape, Steve Miller & Steve Miller Blues Band that took place on February 26, 1967 at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco.
Bill Graham 🇺🇸 (1931 - 1991) was an entertainment promoter and producer of rock concerts. He had a profound influence on rock music in the United States and around the world.
He was largely responsible for the proliferation of psychedelic posters, which he commissioned for the concerts of the artists he produced at his venue in San Francisco.
In this poster, we can see that the style is made of tangles and sinuous curves that multiply endlessly.
The lettering follows the same trend until it is almost illegible.
The use of saturated and multiple colors is de rigueur. We find the influence of both Art Nouveau (especially Alfons Mucha), the visual experiences related to the taking of hallucinatory drugs (especially LSD) and Indian art.
This poster, which advertised a show with B.B. King, Moby Grape and the Steve Miller Blues Band, is printed in black and gold on a red background.
This work is the last poster of the series The Fillmore created by John H. Myers.
