Got all the lithos from the shows I've been to so far up in my basement music room    

Thank you to everybody who helped make this possible. You know who you are

Maybe some of you would like to see a poster design that went unapproved.  I figure it would be fun to see.  This was supposed to be for the Vegas shows for tomorrow and Saturday.  Since there hasn't

Buhler confirmed he was behind today's design, and therefore that, as I thought, he was not involved since Copenhagen.

I still like his style much better that what we've seen lately, I feel lucky he came back for today, and even more that @xBrownstonex helped me scoring this beauty.

Thanks for the reference, I was wondering about that. I got the shirt. Bought it outside. Wasn't planning on buying the litho anyway, but I asked if they had any left. They didn't, but he said they'd only gotten 10 copies, so it's no wonder they sold out quickly.

Funny how they decided to get rid of the red for the printing.

Definitely like the final version better.

Yeah, the version with red is like the shirt, but it only says Paris below, not the date, which is printed on the back as usual. The red is less bright though, it looks more pinkish on the shirt.

Just found out the the shirt is glow in the dark :)

None of the European lithos (bar London) have showed up on eBay... Are folks flipping them elsewhere? Or simply not buying for resale?  Love the Paris litho but don't see any for sale

There were a couple Werchter and Copenhagen lithos

I would contact the seller first if you are interested. Says may not post to the US, but I'm sure you could arrange something for a fee.

They're also a bit smaller than the actual posters, the seller said he printed on A3 paper

Well done, I must have missed that one (or it had gone real quick)

How much did you pay if you dont mind my asking? Few London ones are still on ebay for some exorbitant prices, clearly sellers get too greedy with them

This guy must be making a killing - he's already sold almost 20 copies of both posters... Well, at least he's not trying to sell them for the real ones 

Think of it, this is something GNR merch dept could do themselves - put print to order cheap litho copies online... I'd rather pay to the band and the artist

He has made about $515.00 so far and I say good for him. They are a little smaller than the original prints and he isn't trying to pass them off as genuine (unlike some other eBay seller we have discussed).

The only thing questionable is that the original artist isn't getting paid for the use of their image, but the marketing people are more to blame for this than the eBay seller.

There is no reason the official merch people couldn't find a printer and offer variants of the original gig posters for sale after the gigs, or allow the artist to offer variants on their own to sell like other shops do. The only artist who has done this was Sara Ray with her Rocket Queen print and that seems a little  peculiar... I wonder if there is some sort of agreement that they won't do that and that is why we haven't seen anything else by her at the other gigs?

Whatever is going on has made the secondary market explode for GNR prints compared to prints by other bands. Would really love to know the logic behind it all, especially when you factor in the extremely low print runs for some of the European shows with the insane demand for some of this artwork.
