Tour Lithographs and show specific artwork


Recommended Posts

I’m looking for Las Vegas 2016, both nights. Wasn’t keen to the litho collecting yet. I was at both shows. Later I got Chicago 2016 (first night), San Antonio 2017 and the recent show at Wrigley all shows I attended. Would love to round out the collection. Let me know if anyone has extras that they would be willing to sell.🤘

Hi Coma,

I am Ulrich „Malte“ Planer, the Designer of the San Jose Sharks Litho. I have a spare one just for you. #21/250. If you take over the shipping costs (from Germany), I would like to give it to you for free. Just let me know 😽.

 

 

So it took nearly a month for delivery but I must say, the San Jose litho really pops in-person! I'd rank it top 6 for this leg (Boston,  Fargo, LA, Vegas, and Minnesota are my faves). I'll try to post a pic tomorrow but wanted to say thanks and once again apologize for saying it sucks. It does not suck, but I certainly did...

The insert image from URL, on mobile, isn't working so here is a link to it if anyone is interested: https://ibb.co/wBZKJMY

Does it look as much like a black light poster as I thought it did in the text I got?

Definitely not. While it's certainly not one of the brighter looking posters, it's not too dark either. As I said, the colours really pop and are quite vibrant.

Edit: black light poster? Like under those purple lights? I don't have one try it out. Definitely interested though lol

The colors in the photo I got looked like how black light posters glow a bit. The red looked like the reds in a black light poster. Glad you are digging yours.

Looks great! Do you have any others? Out of curiosity, what made you get those 3? Are they shows that you attended, you really like the art work, you found them at reasonable prices ect...

I have 6 of them hanging throughout the house, I can post pics if anyone is interested in seeing them. I posted the pics of this leg because even in the cheap frames, I thought they looked a lot better than I thought.

That’s one of the four I don’t have framed yet.  Along with MetLife, Hershey 17’, and DC 17’. I’ll probably get some more frames this weekend and I’ll get a pic of it

Would you sale DC 2016?

No. I’ve been fortunate enough to get one at each show I’ve been too, so I’m going to hang onto them. It does seem like that one is pretty hard to find. Keep checking ebay, one might eventually pop up. Good luck!

I’m always on the lookout for the 2x 2016 Metlife ones. I have everything from the other shows I attended.

Pretty sure the 2nd night, un-numbered Devil, is on ebay right now.

Nvm, it sold last month in auction for a whopping $80

Well another leg of the never ending tour has come and gone. Frankly I'm surprised they got through it with the way lockdowns are coming back, but enough of that shit...we got a brand new crop of lithos to discuss!  And I for think this is the best batch in a long time!  Certainly better than the 2019 series which was clearly running out of gas.

Lots of them took inspiration from movies, and I'm OK with that cause I love movies and I love GNR...what could go together better?

I'm gonna list just a few that I thought were awesome...I'm taking pics from amaninjapan's amazing blog "lithorati" of course....your number one stop for everything you ever wanted to know about GNR lithos but were afraid to ask.....

First up is Detroit.

I'm a child of the 80s and RoboCop is one of my favorite movies of all time and favorite characters.  What a match made in 1980s heaven....GNR and RoboCop!!

An added bonus is the "homemade" airbrushed look like you'd see on the back of a jean jacket at a county fair.  There's no nice way to say this....it just screams WHITE TRASH and I love it!   Love the subtle GNR references too, like GNR replacing the OCP logo from the movie.  It's so bright and garish and 1980s.  Love it...my favorite!

Next is Missoula, from the undisputed king of GNR lithos, Mr. Arian Buhler himself.  He stands head and shoulders above all other litho artists for good reason...dude is just a beast!

It's a gorgeous rendition of the rotting remains of Evel Knievel in his trademark stars n' stripes helmet.  Now I don't think I'd wanna hang it on my wall and have it be the first thing I see every morning when waking up, but the draftsmanship is impeccable.

2021-08-13-Missoula.jpg

 

 

Next one just kind of speaks for itself....Hollywood!!  Take one of the single most iconic movie posters of all time, and make it a GNR poster.   What do you get?  Forget it Jake, it's Chinatown.   Absolutely lovely and the colors are gorgeous.  Hats off once again to the one and only Arian Buhler.  This one should appeal to both music and movie collectors cause it's a given that the Chinatown movie poster is probably in the top ten of all time.

 

2021-08-19-Los-Angeles.jpg

 

And now, one of the most flat out fun, whimsical, and just plain CUTE lithos on this leg or ANY leg going all the way back to 2016.....the St. Paul "Peanuts" tribute.  If you don't think this is adorable, you need a hug.

Slash's goofy signature Charles Schultz grin, Duff not giving a fuck on bass, and Axl as Shroeder in deep concentration on the keys, with his motorcycle/piano hybrid.   I love it.  I just love it.  It's 100% FUN, the way rock concerts and posters should be!  And it really stands out in a sea of skull imagery!!  What a winner!  (And again...Buhler is the man!)

2021-09-21-St-Paul.jpg

 

Next up is a delightful mish-mash of some cool styles....Baltimore.   Obviously inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and the Raven, you get a three headed raven in the forefront representing GNR's "big three" but I also love the Ralph Steadman inspired font for the logo, and I'm a sucker for anything to do with Estranged, my all time favorite GNR song, supposedly being written out in fancy script by hand by the corpse of our pal Poe.  It's a little bit busy, but I still like it and it's unique enough to stand out from the rest.

 

2021-09-26-Baltimore.jpg

And last but not least, I like the double spread from Hollywood.....FLORIDA?  The fuck, there's a Hollywood in Florida now??

Anyway, these two lithos don't really break any new ground....but they do the job.   Fun, big, bold, exciting, gets the point across.  What I'd consider a solid "B +" rock poster.  Something you'd like having hanging on your wall after the show.  Giant GNR robots are fun....almost a 70s throwback thing.   That's all really, I just think they were well executed and I like 'em!

So how'sabout you, fellow litho fanatics?  Agree, disagree, have your own radically different opinions?

 

I personally liked these the best;

Boston -because I love the baseball card effect. 

Indy- Very cool that they used Axl’s favorite childhood pizza joint

Milwaukee- if anyone can say they are as cool as Axl Rose, it would be Arthur Fonzerelli ehhhh

Columbus- Loved all the Freddy movies! Great memories of watching them back when I was first getting into GNR. 
 

Baltimore- Love estranged! And so glad they didn’t do anything with the Baltimore ravens football team. That would’ve been the first one I’d have to pass on. Although, the prototype we saw from the artist who was supposed to do it, was pretty cool too.
