I cannot decide if I am more embarrassed by these posters as a Rolling Stones fan or as a graphic artist.

They need not always have a graphics novice make a dumb visual pun for each city with their iconic logo using Photoshop.

They could hire a real designer to create one good imaginative design for the entire tour; use their logo tastefully, iconically. Then just swap out the type for each successive city. Just like movie or tv show ad campaign... posters, etc. don't have a separate design for each and every damn city.

I am guessing a different design for each city creates more income for them and there are lots of people who aren't blessed with an eye for good aesthetics who are willing to buy this garbage.

didn't Charlie have a say in all merchandise design?

Was thinking the same.. he definitely did at one time, as did Charlotte Watts.
Perhaps we are seeing another aspect where the Watts's input is missed.

My thinking exactly! We are missing Charlie's input. The only one I thought was nice was the Tampa one—that is the only city shirt I am buying. Most of the designs are very poor in my opinion, I am also a graphic designer.

This one is nice.
I like the negative-positive interplay of the logo on the black background and overall looseness and flatness.
The foreground buildings defining the bottom of the logo is cool.

The typography could be better. SAT ? Typography is not on the S.A.T. test.
But it's good that it keeps ROLLING as in "ROLLING STONES"




This one for me is the best one of the bunch:

Like the Nashville one..thumbs up
The LA one, while I liked it initially, was a no go for me in person.. First LA show was OK.. not litho worthy but bought a shirt.

This one, and I'm a HUGE fan of vintage signs and like the retro concept in general, but it looks like it's right out of The Flintstones to me..

Not even based on a real sign or place? Hard pass.
Didn't buy anything for LA 2, and man.. I really wanted to.
Made the trek down there early with every intent.

If you look hard enough, the Hollywood sign is based on the real sign, seems to me.
Not a great bunch, in general, I agree.

No doubt, and many would agree as it's the only litho to have completely sold out in the official online store.
Bought a numbered version at the show (limited to only 500), and went looking to pick up another online as a gift for someone with a 15% discount that was just emailed to me, but unfortunately there's no more.

Really good one for Austin!

Especially on a litho!
I'd say get there early grab one and take back to hotel, but not with the logistics at this show winking smiley
Also sounds like a bit of a trek back to parking, but maybe an option for some.

This is a good one, online now. Is it more expensive or different quality if you get it online rather than in person?

I may have to consider the Hollywood, FL poster if it's decent.

Not too bad - especially when compared to some of the terrible lithos this leg of tour (Detroit, Vegas, Charlotte, St. Louis).
I'd try my best to get a numbered one if at the show, and in fact would even be happy with an unnumbered one purchased online...even though I'm not even attending the show!

(Looks a bit like Mick strolling down the sidewalk incognito).

Same price I believe angee.. (except shipping) they rarely differ (bought a Cardiff one once that did tho, still stuck in my craw winking smiley )
Only difference is the ones at the show are numbered editions of 500.

Don't normally buy lithos for shows I don't attend, but as I had GC ticket, Lucky Dip tix, air, hotel, shuttles, all booked for this at one time, Imma go ahead and pick one up. smileys with beer
Put too much into it to walk away with nothing winking smiley

Thank you!

What a refreshing change the Austin poster is.

Out of 13 so far, now we have, IMO, three* that are very worthy of wall space: Austin, LA 2, and Nashville.


You see, RS Inc.? Put out lithos that look good and we'll actually say so.

* Edit: And two more, Pittsburgh and Tampa, that are interesting and kind of cool. My runners-up.

Totally agree D's. You spent that much already, buy the Litho and proudly display!

Austin is my favorite poster this tour. Hoping Hollywood, FL will be a good one but even if it’s not, I’ll probably get it anyway since that will be such a special show.

What have people been doing to find sold out posters? I'd love LA 2 and Tampa...

I was hoping for more since that’s my hometown. I’m comparing it to Austin which is great in my opinion.

Austin and Hollywood win for best posters of the tour IMHO, though Austin is #1.

Vegas, LA #2 and Dallas round out my top 5.

I like the St. Louis poster the best from this tour.
Yes, I think they missed Charlie's input.
Interesting how only 2 of the posters (Nashville & Vegas) say "The Rolling Stones" and the rest of them only say "Stones".

And LA #1. But yes, interesting. And definitely missing Charlie's input in so many ways.

Terribly unimaginative, and the color scheme is horribly bad...nothing says Florida like "blood red" ... confused smiley ...

Out of all of them Austin and L.A. #2 for the win.

Most of the US tour posters this year have US date format, but the Hollywood poster have European date format, saying "23. NOVEMBER".

Yes… good catch Bjornulf. In my opinion the best are Nashville, LA #1, LA #2
and Austin.
