Hand-made poster from their infamous 1979 Toronto gig

Original hand-painted promotional poster, done in an unknown hand, for the Clash’s September 26, 1979, appearance originally slated for the International Centre in Toronto. Poster measures 28 x 44, with the band’s name at the top, an album sleeve from Give ‘Em Enough Rope, and venue information along the lower portion, with a piece of brown packing tape over “International Centre” changing the venue to the O’Keefe Centre. Signed and inscribed in black felt tip, “Hello Johnny, Best wishes, Paul Simonon.” Corner creases, some dampstaining along edges, and a bit of light soiling and surface wear, otherwise fine condition. The O'Keefe Centre sustained $5000 in damage during the Clash concert, and a change in policy barred rock bands forever. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
