Original 1st printing 14 x 22" concert poster for the Who (*1st appearances after Monterey Pop) appearing with Loading Zone (who were replaced on the second night by the Santana Blues Band) at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA from 6/16-17/1967.
Art by Bonnie MacLean, image is # 68 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series.
Medium flat index index stock poster has been professionally restored to very good (B/B+) condition; each corner has had a tiny paper fill (the largest is in the upper right corner at about 3/4"), along with a number of thin pressed-out creases running along the top margin, a few well-hidden hairline stress bends hiding within the image/ticket outlet area and someone has drawn a rather large homage to Rick Griffin (in pencil, black rapidograph pen and india ink) on the reverse (doesn't show through to the front), otherwise fine.
While this example may not meet some people's conditional criteria, the creative hippie charm of the drawing (in addition to the spiffy restoration job) more than make up for it.
A really unique little piece of 1960's history, and a fascinating artifact of the times.
