Poster from Tool’s New Orleans Gig

Badkittygothgirl sent me a photo of the Tool tour poster she picked up at the gig.  It’s signed by all four members, and I presume for sale at the merchandise stall:

037

She also sent me a copy of the set list, which I won’t post here.  You can check it out in the New Orleans thread in the forum.  For those who are going to on this tour and don’t want to see the set list – rest assured you won’t be disappointed!

Also, the opening act was Wovenhand, despite what Blair said about it possibly being incorrect.

Wow, very nice!!!! Were they available as soon as the venue opned? And also did they have unsigned posters as well?

Signed posters are 100, unsigned are 25. This is a great deal considering this is original artwork created by silkscreen printing. Clearly, Adam and the guys are purposefully making them affordable, especially the $25 versions.

Just curious: do the posters have an embossed stamp?

I bought a few last night, and none of them are embossed.  They are hand numbered, but not embossed.

I am indeed.  I have 2 spares.  I could probably be convinced to part with them.

I have wondered whether or not the embossing had some authenticating purpose (preventing forged signatures, reprints, etc.) The embossing seems to be random.[/quote]
 
I have one from New Orleans in ’07 and that one wasnt embossed either.  But my dallas and San Antonio from last year..embossed.  The paper from last night’s show actually seems a bit thicker.  I wonder if the embossing would have torn the stock?

How easy was it to get a signed one?  I know only about 300 are signed at each show, right?

Yeah. At the time (Summer 09′) it seemed like they started using a stamp to emboss all the limited edition posters. In fact, they embossed all of them except the signed Lolla posters. Probably just an oversight…
They may have just given up on that part of the process, deeming it unnecessary.

Each merch booth had signed and unsigned.  If you were in early, I think you could get either with no problem.  There is a total of 250 posters period.  Not sure how many of the 250 were signed.

I was thinking of starting a new thread for people to post pics of their show posters. My lolla poster was embossed last year, however all of my posters from the shows in 07 are not but they are hand numbered. I have 9 of the print mafia posters from different shows.

no i bought 2 of the posters from lolla I looked all damn day at the merch booth for signed posters none available!!! They didnt even have the regular posters at the venue until about 5 I believe. I think that the signed posters arrived at almost show time which sucks, but at the same time I haven’t seen a signed lolla poster!

I stand corrected guys.  I just took a closer look and took a few pictures.  The embossing is higher on the art and hidden by the print.

Thats it maybe they are embossing all of the posters that Adam created then, which make sense!

Lachrymologist, If you are ever inclined to buy a signed Lolla poster from someone, be sure that it doesn’t have a stamp. I saw several in Chicago, and none of the signed posters were stamped.

On a more related note, the poster for this NOLA show is one of my favorites. I love the image and the color scheme.

Thanks for the insight. I already have 2 lolla posters it doesn’t really bother me that they aren’t signed. I have a couple of signatures from the guys. I probably wouldn’t purchase a signed poster unless it was at the venue! I am interested in one of those print mafia posters that Adam drew on in 07 if I could guarantee its authenticity.

If you have to get them early, was it a pain in the ass to carry around during the concert? I definitely want one but I’d have to carry it on the floor the whole time.

They come in cardboard tubes, to its not too bad. Though, i didn’t like carrying mine around, so I took mine back to my nearby hotel before the show.

More precisely, my poster came with a triangular shaped cardboard container.

I would definitely take one of your hands and give it a good home. I’d take it for walks, play with it and teach it to hang. If you still have one please let me know.

They had some T-shirts I had not seen before, all were $40 I believe.  They also had a glossy roll-up poster, didn’t get a price as I was not interested in it.  I saw CDs and Vinyl for Wovenhand.  I think that was about it.

If anyone is interested, I went ahead and listed mine on ebay.  I had a handful of requests, so I felt it was the most fair way to make them available.  They’re both starting at 99 cents.

That shirt is from last years tour. They did not have that one available at the merch booth. I don’t like the shirt, personally, b/c i like it that our boys don’t have their faces plastered all over the place!
