Chicago has served as the home for some great musical performances over the years. Lots of us have stood in line for hours on end there to get tickets. Many have even camped out for one or more nights to make sure they get high-quality seats at various venues. There is just something about seeing events live. They get fans' blood pumping, make them want to dance, and get them to sing along to their favorite songs.
Many attendees like to let their unique style shine by hanging concert posters on their walls. The pieces allows them to relive treasured moments in the back of their minds again and again. Collectors also invest in the pieces just because they appreciate the artwork. Some investors expect the concert posters to increase in value and eventually sell them to make a profit.
We have plenty of concert posters available, and many of them were created for performances right here in the Windy City. Interested parties should stick around and read on. The following sections will discuss two outstanding options.
Blink-182 is an American rock band responsible for top hits such as "Stockholm Syndrome," "All the Small Things," and "I'm Lost Without You." Ian Williams created this limited-edition screen printed poster for the group's 2017 performances at Lollapalooza and the Metro in Chicago, Illinois. It measures 18×24 inches and includes the name of the band, venues, and dates. However, the images are what really catch the eye.
A skeleton wearing a tuxedo, complete with a bow tie, stands out. The character has a mouthful of teeth, and one of them is gold. Plus, it has a head full of blond hair and is snuggled up next to what appears to be a Playboy Bunny. The beautiful woman has bright red lipstick and dazzling blue eyes. Her hair is also blond, and her fingernails are painted red. This poster is perfect for any Blink-182 fan, and at only $85, it’s a steal.
Are there any Pearl Jam fans in the house? If so, this 18×24-inch poster by Andrew Fairclough might be a better fit for them.
The banner was designed to commemorate the band's 2018 performance at Wrigley Field. As with the other piece, this one also features the group's name, venue, and date printed on the top and bottom. Meanwhile, in the middle, there is a baseball player standing at bat. Being a baseball player is not what makes him stand out, though. Rather, it is his elastic arms that are stretched out and tied in knots. This piece runs $250, so you should check it out now before it is gone.
