When discussing the BG-8 created by the late great Wes Wilson, let’s get down to the bare facts. THERE IS NO BIGGER NAME IN THE ART AND COLLECTIBLES WORLD THAN ANDY WARHOL. Period. It’s indisputable and will in the long run be the overriding fact that determines the future value and desirability of this poster. This lot is more than just a concert poster. There are literally several thousands of serious Warhol collectors around the world that would love to own this poster. None of these collectors even know that it exists. Why? Because very few are known of today!

 

Billions of dollars of wealth have been created by the Andy Warhol brand. Those lucky enough to acquire one of his early pieces have become multi-millionaires. Those that had the foresight to buy his work in quantity, now have a solid 9 figure $100,000,000+ net worth. That’s right, hundreds of millions of dollars have been made by single collectors with Warhol.

 

There is nothing theoretical about this: it is undisputed fact.

 

We at PAE have only handled this super rare issue a half-dozen times over the past decade, and it's no secret it seldom surfaces for sale in public auctions. Very few BG-8 posters were originally printed–well under 1,000 editions. Any BG-8's that exist are buried in long-term collections. Consequentially, we always have a mile long list of collectors eager to acquire this amazing poster. It also features one of the most exciting lineups ever to appear at the Fillmore! How do you top Warhol, Zappa and Lou Reed?
