Rare Iconic Bob Marley First Printing Poster

Sought-after original first printing color 11 x 17 poster for a Bob Marley and the Wailers concert at the Paramount Northwest in Portland, Oregon on July 24, 1977, with poster featuring an iconic central green image of Marley holding his guitar during a performance above concert and ticket information. In fine condition. This poster is one of several made in advance for Marley and the Wailers' scheduled American leg of their 1977 Exodus Tour. After a stretch of 15 shows in Europe, Marley seriously aggravated an old toe injury during a football friendly game with French journalists; the injury was severe enough to cancel the final two shows in London, and then, eventually, the entirety of the US tour. This scarce poster remains in superb condition and represents one of the 'lost' Marley-Exodus concerts.
