Looking for giant band posters
« on: December 22, 2017, 10:45:23 AM »
I have this 6 foot tall flag from the band Rhapsody of Fire that hangs in my living room. It's awesome, made of fabric and has grommets at the top like an actual flag. Many years ago a then-girlfriend of mine had a similar Rhapsody flag almost as big. I've wanted posters/fabric posters for all kinds of bands like that. Or, well, any poster that is 'large' or larger than the typical fold-out size posters you can get almost anywhere.

Specifically I'm looking for massive ACDC posters/banners/flags. I'm looking for as big as possible because I want to get one for my father to hang in his body shop (ACDC is far and away his favorite band, plus all of us in the shop like them too so it's perfect). It's gotta be big, none of those puny 24x36 posters. Can anybody help me with my search? Doesn't matter what the art is, but I've been looking for a massive poster (preferably fabric) of Back In Black's art, or the Highway to Hell one with horns on their heads, or the For Those About To Rock art.

I thought finding some for a band like ACDC would be easy but I'm having no luck so far.

Not sure if they have giant posters, but check out Wolfgangs Vault.

When they first put the warehoused items up for sale I invested in a huge collection of cool memorabilia.

They have a ton of original first printing and tour items. It's all stuff that legendary promoter Bill Graham stashed away for decades when he was still alive.

^Yup, good call.  That is your best bet for authentic stuff. 

Otherwise, poking around on Ebay is the only other thing I can think of.  https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xac%2Fdc+banner.TRS0&_nkw=ac%2Fdc+banner&_sacat=0

Holy balls, if anyone wants a first printing of that Jimi Hendrix Experience Poster, it's only $15,500.

https://www.wolfgangs.com/posters/jimi-hendrix-experience/poster/BG105.html

Otherwise this site looks awesome! Too bad I don't have any more wall space in my house appropriate for posters. Damn offspring of mine!
