Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd 1967 Concert Poster Sells for $1635

eBay

The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, Pink Floyd and The Move all played on the same bill in May of 1967 — sorry we missed that! — and a poster promoting that legendary show sold at an eBay auction for $1635.00.

Before Woodstock, the Isle of Wight or the Glastonbury Festivals, there was Barbeque ‘67. In what the seller calls a “sleepy Lincolnshire market town,” what had to be the concert of the year took place at the Tulip Bulb Auction Hall in Spalding, Lincs.

Take note: the cost to see all of these legendary bands was one British Pound. That alone is the bargain of the decade but as the poster points out, the Barbeque ’67 offered so much more.  A licensed bar, hot dogs, a discotheque, covered accommodation, soft ultra violet lighting and a knockout atmosphere. Can you visualize the sight of fans diggin’ on Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett while chomping down on a frankfurter?

Still someone at the gig had more on their mind than food and music as this poster still exists, thanks to either sentiment or just good housekeeping. The seller believes that the poster was swept up after the event and left as found. It was listed as having little wear and tear and measures 8.5 x 14.

This poster landed 41 bids before selling and with such a low selling price, this was a fun auction to watch. The seller makes it clear that this was a very unlikely venue for such an amazing lineup and that Barbeque ’67 was more or less the forerunner of all rock festivals. As for the person who swept up the poster, they could be considered a forerunner too; as in, running all the way to the bank!
