Original poster for a 1981 performance by Prince at Paradiso, Amsterdam

Amsterdam: Paradiso, 1981. Vintage multi-color silkscreen poster for a May 29, 1981 performance by Prince at Paradiso, Amsterdam, designed by Martin Kaye. Dutch band Streetlight, listed as the supporting act on the poster, didn't actually open for Prince, but played earlier the same night in the upstairs secondary auditorium.

Prince's first concert outside the US, and one of three European shows at the tale end of the "Dirty Mind" tour (the Lyceum in London, and the Threatre Le Palace in Paris, being the other two).

Martin Kaye, one of the foremost poster designers of the punk era, was the Paradiso's longest serving in-house designer, from 1972 until 1983, with his studio in the basement of the venue. Kaye's silkscreen posters were usually produced in an edition of 125 copies which he would distribute throughout Amsterdam himself, accompanied by his dog Lady.

24 x 17 inches. Near Fine.
