Fond du Lac, Wisconsin: Fond du Lac Exhibition Hall, 1971. Original Hatch-style two-color show print for a 1971 performance by Badfinger in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, at the Fond du Lac Exhibition Hall. The print utilizes the Apple logo, an association with The Beatles that was both a blessing and a curse for the band for the entirety of their career.
Badfinger first toured the US in late 1970, and toured extensively for the 5 years that followed. This performance, one of their earliest in America, was in support of their first album, "No Dice" (1970). A few months later, the band would rent Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire, living and recording there to ultimately produce their masterpiece, "Straight Up," the album that yielded their biggest singles, "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue." A pivotal moment for one of England's finest pop bands.
11 x 14 inches, green and black ink on card stock. Fine.
