Original 1st printing 24&3/8" diameter round concert poster for the 1976 Knebworth Fair, an all-day event held at Knebworth Park in Stevenage, Hertsfordshire, England on 8/21/1976 (*no date listed). The show was headlined by the Rolling Stones, along with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Todd Rundgren and Utopia, Doin Harrison Band, 10CC and Hot Tuna (featuring Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, formerly of Jefferson Airplane)
Design by (promoter) Freddie Bannister, image is featured in the Art of Rock on page 416 (plate 4.266).
Medium-thin glossy stock poster is in very good to excellent (B+) condition; the poster has a trio of approximately 2" long areas of creasing at 3:00, across the waist of the harlequin and at about 7:00- these are likely the result of the poster being rolled up and held together with a too-tight rubber band; they are mostly fairly well-camouflaged within the image area and are mostly visible from the reverse side; aside from that, there is a soft vertical crease/bend (about 7" long) that extends from about 10:00 down to 8:00 along the right side of the poster, plus a couple of light handling dings here and there and a stray edge ding or two, otherwise fine.
Very popular mid-'70's Rolling Stones concert poster from one of the band's largest UK shows to date (although several people who were there claim Skynyrd stole the show). Judge for yourself, here's.... "FREEBIRD!!!!";
