Grandmaster Flash & Furious 5 – 1982 Concert Poster / Hacienda Manchester
A very rare concert poster advertising a show by GRANDMASTER FLASH & THE FURIOUS FIVE on December 10, 1982 at The Hacienda in Manchester, England.
The Hacienda, dubbed “the most famous club in the world,” was owned by New Order, their manager Rob Gretton, and their record label head, Tony Wilson, of Factory Records. The website for the Manchester District Music Archive features this poster and notes “Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five played a blinding show on this night, dressed in full Red Indian gear, feather headresses and all.”
In near mint condition, 29 3/4″ x 20″, silkscreened on thin paper, textured on the back (probably intended for flyposting.) The only example we have seen other than that mentioned above. (note: the background is an even white–the color irregularities are a result of glare in the photo.)
