We couldn’t be more pleased to offer this scarce find for the FIRST TIME in our auction! Original printings of Pink Floyd posters are one of the most loved and sought after items in the music memorabilia world today! And with good reason, their value has always been consistent to collectors as time passes on. This poster is no exception!


Artist Gerald Scarfe is known well for his album cover artwork and animation for the 1979 Pink Floyd "The Wall" record and film. However, in the mid-seventies his journey with the Floyd began when he collaborated with the band on films they would display on the large circular screen onstage for their "Wish You Were Here" tour. This poster promotes the late 1974 winter tour of the UK, in which the band first performed songs like “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” live, along with a complete workout of Dark Side material during Set 2. 


Scarfe’s drawing of the band members in nothing short of amazing, and very reminiscent of the designs he produced 4 years later for “The Wall”. The right hand side of the poster lists the dates and venues of the tour, and the artist exhibits his name and date at the bottom, October 1974. This ultra rare and historically significant Pink Floyd gem is 100% Original with no restoration! Very few of these tour posters were produced, and although this issue has been reprinted over the years, this example here is an original first printing.
