A classic piece of Summer Music Festival History for all you ticket collectors out there! This ticket was produced for the Summer Jam Concert, exhibited in The Art of Rock book as plate #4.231. Many of the tickets we've seen surface for this event suffer from extensive water damage due to the massive amounts of rain that fell during the festival. This example is moisture free, 100% Original and the FIRST we've ever offered in our auction!

 

The gathering at Watkins Glen in July of 1973 is one of the most memorable events in the annals of rock history. An estimate 600,000 music fans gathered at a speedway in upstate New York for a day of unbelievable music and good times. At the time, this was the largest attendance ever for a rock festival. The Grateful Dead, The Band and The Allman Brothers: three of the most influential and talented electrified purveyors of the American roots music tradition, took the stage for this once in a lifetime gathering. Don't miss this chance to acquire a piece of memorabilia worthy of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!
