A 1960s-vintage British Invasion large cardboard concert poster for The Animals in concert in the U.S. in Spring 1966.
This Globe Posters window card was used to sell tickets for The Animals’ show at the Winchester Roller Rink in Winchester, Virginia on April 28, 1966.
The band was still known by its original, simpler name, without lead singer Eric Burdon being singled out yet.
Fans of hit-makers Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs will surely notice that Globe switched the photographs of the bottom two acts on this poster – oops!
The exact wording found on this classy rock ‘n roll window card: (In orange block): Winchester Roller Rink – (then in white area): Thur. Apr. 28 – 8:30 P.M. ’til 1:00 A.M. – Advance Tickets $4.50 – At Door $6.00 – Tickets Now On Sale at Shenval Music Co. (short for “Shenandoah Valley”)
Huebren (the promoter’s first & last names combined) Presents His 2nd Singing Spectacular – (and now in the large orange “cloud”) From England and Ed Sullivan’s TV Show! England’s No. 1 Authentic Rhythm & Blues Group – THE ANIMALS – “House of Rising Sun,” “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” and Their Latest Hit, “Inside Looking Out.”
(And then the two opening acts): From Texas and The Studios of M.G.M. – Sam the Sham and The Pharoahs – Wooly Booly – Juju Hand – Red Hot – Ring Dang Do – and Winchester’s Own Brutus and The Roamin’s (the band in which the promoter belonged, btw). Globe Poster – Baltimore
This exact “cloud” type of Globe Posters rock concert poster was utilized for a lot of pop & rock acts in the sixties, selling tickets to many big U.S. tours. Most of them were, sadly, torn down and discarded after the concerts.
This Animals / British Invasion broadside is happily narrated by concert memorabilia collector Pete Howard (805-540-0020 by telly or firstname.lastname@example.org by e-mail). I will pay the very BEST prices for original vintage 1950s-60s rock concert posters!
