We are pleased to offer this rarity in our auction for the first time.

 

Original Pink Floyd posters are one of the most loved and sought after items in the market today! And with good reason, their value has always been consistent to collectors as time passes on. This poster is no exception! Here we have the group performing in Zurich, Switzerland on December 9th, 1972. 

 

There were two versions of this poster produced, and based on our research, both are believed to be Pre-Concert First Printings. One exhibits the Camel stamp in the bottom right corner and the other does not. Most Swiss concerts were a co-production between the promoter (in this case, “Good News”) and a sponsor (Camel filters). As the official sponsor, Camel would help pay for the printing of the posters, tickets or other promo items. By doing so, they would obviously insist on having their logo on the poster, as displayed on this piece. 

 

Pink Floyd toured North America through September and October of 1972, and then embarked on a rigorous European Tour during November and December. This concert in Switzerland on December 9th was the second to last night of the tour, and included a full performance of Dark Side of the Moon. The album would not be released until March of the following year. This gem is in absolutely remarkable condition given its size and age. It is unlikely we will see one of these again for a long time, as very few have survived in such good shape.
