This interesting Pink Floyd poster was designed by Pat Hanks for a one-night show at The Fillmore West. A hand-drawn bird surrounds a photograph of the band. The poster was printed on pale yellow stock. Far fewer of these posters were printed than normal because it was a mid-week show, and they were printed only once, making them fairly scarce today. A credit at the bottom of the poster incorrectly notes David Singer as the artist because the ticket outlet strip was copied from a poster that Singer designed.
Pink Floyd came back to the Fillmore West six months later on October 21, 1970 for another midweek show, also with a smaller press run than usual and, oddly for Bill Graham, the exact same poster art was used, printed on only a slightly darker stock. [We have that one too, if interested]. The image of Floyd roadies and equipment is from the back of the album, “Ummagumma.”
Pink Floyd's 18-date US tour commenced at New York's Filmore East and ended at New Orleans' Warehouse after the final two scheduled shows in Houston and Dallas were cancelled. The tour included an hour-long live performance filmed by the PBS TV Network in San Francisco.
The setlist for this show included an early version of the opus Atom Heart Mother which would be released in October in the US.
