Awesome Gig Posters from A-Z

26 stunning tour posters from past shows

While there may be a recent resurgence in vinyl, for a while, music’s visual outlet was reduced to a CD cover, and later to a thumbnail on a screen. The gig poster has been a tradition since the 60s and continues to grasp hearts and imaginations of those who see them. Whether you’re a collector or just an appreciator of design, there is something nostalgic about the gig poster that everyone can relate to.

We’ve done some hunting and found 26 stunning posters from A-Z. Take a look:
