Early promotional Rolling Stones poster achieves incredible price at Dawsons online auction…
The poster which was used by legendary rock band the Rolling Stones to promote one of their gigs in Windsor back in the 1960s, went under the hammer on 28th October. Dawsons’ bespoke digital marketing ensured that this wonderful poster was promoted to a huge global online audience and directly marketed to rock memorabilia and Rolling Stones collectors alike. Subsequently, the poster attracted a great deal of interest both in the UK and internationally.
A frenetic bidding war ensued, with plenty of online interest and five telephone bidders. The hammer eventually fell once the price had soared to £30,000! A fantastic result for our client (who resides in the Southwest of England), and also a world record hammer price - the previous record for a Stones poster sold at auction was £15,000! Needless to say, our client was understandably ecstatic at the wonderful price that the Dawsons team achieved on their behalf.
Early 1960s Rolling Stones promotional poster. Sold for: £30,000
The original early 1960s promotional concert poster, which was from the Ricky Tick R&B club night at the Thames Hotel, Windsor, was glazed and in a contemporary frame. The poster was designed by Bob McGrath, who produced a number of designs for the Ricky-Tick club, and he was also the leader of the Hogsnort Rupert R& B band. The design features on the cover of the book 'As You Were' by John and Colin Mansfield (2019). The Stones first played at this venue in 1962, and appeared there again approximately forty times over the next two years.
