Copy of Iconic Jimi Hendrix Concert Poster Sells for $4,000


A copy of John Van Hamersveld’s iconic Jimi Hendrix concert poster has sold for $4,000 on eBay.

The poster was created to promote a Feb. 10, 1968 Hendrix date at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium with Soft Machine, the Electric Flag and Blue Cheer, and since has become a pop culture touchstone. Sold as is with pin holes and staple holes, the poster’s image “conveys the essence of Jimi Hendrix,” according to fellow artist Shepard Fairey in 2011’s ‘I Heart Design: Remarkable Graphic Design Selected by Designers.’

Over the years, Hamerveld also created the album cover images for a series of well-known classic rock artists, including ‘Exile on Main Street’ for the Rolling Stones, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ for the Beatles, ‘Skeletons in the Closet’ for the Grateful Dead and ‘Hotter Than Hell’ for Kiss, among others.

A portion of the proceeds went to benefit local musicians in Los Angeles, according to the seller.
