1975 Bruce Springsteen Concert Poster
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $290.00
Concert poster heralding the pre-stardom appearance of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band on August 9, 1975 at the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Dating from early in Springsteen's career, the poster is especially significant as it also promotes what would be his "breakthrough" album, Born to Run. Fans are told to "Watch For 'Born to Run' Coming Soon" and the album cover is pictured in the lower right. Born to Run, featuring the song "Thunder Road," was released in September of 1975 and instantly catapulted Springsteen to stardom. Despite the great success of his followup albums, Born to Run continues to hold a special place in music history, and was later described by Dave Marsh of Rolling Stone as "The definitive American rock LP." The visible dimensions are 14.5 x 19.5 inches and the poster has been double-matted and framed. The poster has just a couple very light, unobtrusive creases and a couple of tiny edge tears that are concealed by the matting; it is otherwise bright and clean and has an Excellent overall appearance. We can't imagine that too many posters from this very early show, predating Springsteen's rise to stardom, have survived. Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Framed to total dimensions of 20.5 x 25.25 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $290.00
