Willie Nelson Concert Poster
June 29 30, 1974
@ The Texas Opry House
Numbered by Ken Taylor
Cool Tone Variant
Limited Edition 20
This print commemorates Willie Nelson’s two concerts on June 29th and 30th in 1974 at The Texas Opry House, which took Willie from a Nashville songwriter to a Country rebel.
These shows took place only a few months after Willie released one of the best concept albums ever, Phases and Stages. Those in attendance witnessed Willie and his band at their finest, showcasing the full range of his material from classics written a decade before like Crazy, to his then-current hits like Whiskey River.
These concerts represent Willie his giving the high-sign to Nashville, and embracing his new musical home.
This illustration highlights Ken Taylor’s brilliant line work and shading. This truly feels authentic to the period with a 70’s rock poster vibe.
What is an Artist’s Proof?
An Artist’s Proof is an old tradition of reserving a quantity of prints for the artist’s use, printed at the same time as the regular edition with out changes. The amount of A.P.’s printed are commonly equal to 10% of the edition. In the early days of printing, these prints were the only remuneration the poor artist received. Proofs are signed by the artist and numbered showing the quantity of Artist’s Proofs issued in the edition. Because of their highly restricted number, Artist’s Proofs are sold at a higher value than the regular prints in the edition.
