AUCTION - Cream - Farewell Performance - 1968 Concert Poster - Baltimore Civic Center - Good

Here is a highly collectible, rare, original poster for the Nov. 3, 1968 concert at the Baltimore Civic Center featuring Cream in what was touted as "Their Farewell Performance" (the band broke up Nov. 1968). It was part of their 30-day farewell tour of the U.S. They were billed as "The Most Important Controversial Pop Stars In The World, At The Zenith Of Their Careers", and who could dispute that. The imagery on this one is very detailed and unique. Often referred to as the first supergroup, Cream, consisting of Eric Clapton on guitar, Jack Bruce on bass and lead vocals, and Ginger Baker on drums broke up immediately after the tour amid growing tensions between band members. Although the poster indicates that the Baltimore concert was "their farewell performance," the group also performed the following night in Providence, Rhode Island. This was followed by two shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 26, their last performances together until reuniting for a number of concerts in the 1990s and 2000s.

The poster features art by illustrator Edgar Argo, and it was he and John Fritts that made this concert possible as noted by the "An Edgar Argo - John Fritts Production" note at the bottom left. The poster features great caricature images of band members Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton, and Ginger Baker at the center. A smaller image of the band performing appears at the bottom. One of the ultimate Cream posters due to its design.

This incredible poster measures approximately 16 3/4" x 22", and is printed on thinnish paper stock. It remains in good condition, with edge wear, small corner bends a nick along the lower right edge some paper loss,  horizontal bends in the lower margin, and handling. The poster still displays well and would look great framed.
