She’On / Blackwater James / Kris Bell Rock Concert Poster

Client: The Warehouse

This is a rock concert poster for the Warehouse in Clarksville TN. It is an "homage" to a concert poster from the 1950’s that promoted the fatal tour of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Richie Valens.

So I was listening to Pandora Radio, and about 2 or 3 Buddy Holly songs came on. And I was thinking to myself, "God I really love these old songs!" I did a search and found a poster promoting the Winter Tour that eventually ended the lives of some great originators of Rock and Roll. I saw the poster and said, "I have to use that in some way, just to pay respect". Plus the layout is a great piece of rock poster design! So I did. I only used the middle section though. I added the paper fold overlay texture to make it feel as if it’s an old flyer from the 50’s. I included the original poster design so everyone can see how great it is.
