London: Hammersmith Palais, ca. 1984. Vintage mini-poster for a concert featuring artists Gary Glitter, The Meteors, and The Sid Presley Experience, performing at London's Hammersmith Palais on Sunday July 8th, 1984.
Known largely for "Rock and Roll, Parts I and II," an essential for any ballpark experience and musical influence on countless other recording artists, this poster dates from Glitter's comeback tour after his temporary retirement in 1976. In the late 1990s Glitter would be ousted for a number of sex offender charges, including ownership of a large cache of child pornography and committing sexual acts with minors in multiple countries worldwide. His brief popularity, followed by his catastrophic fall, could in some ways be said to mirror the trajectory of the entire glam rock genre.
11.5 x 16.25 inches, photocopy on goldenrod stock. Very Good plus, with a few closed tears and creases, and some bruising at the verso.
