Rolling Stones Promotional Poster, 1974
This poster promoted the film of their 1972 American Exile on Main Street concert tour. Recently re-released and available on iTunes, it stands as a “period piece” capturing the Stones arguably at their apogee. The poster is a raucous, Pythonesque assemblage of anecdote announcing limited engagements in major markets commencing at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City on 15 April 1974.
