Official Tour 2008 poster?

Post by Dem » Wed Mar 12, 2008 1:46 am

Jarkko the poster of the 2008 tour
you have on the first page is the
"official" one?

The ancient Greek woman playing
the "lyra" is cool.

Here is a modern depiction
of the same theme:

Hi Dem, I think it's an official one.

There was "first poster" posted at midnight with the venues, but it was replaced later during the night... :lol: Anyhow, the second one is even better (first one was just the intertwined hearts logo, which is now under the drawing of the girl with lyra)

Thanks Tom
now I just need a copy :)

Nice find that by Sophia!

It is great tha Leonard has included
Athens in his tour and it's cool that
he keeps his connection with the Greek
culture even in his tour poster.

Is the drawing by Leonard? It looks to me, although I'm the artistic equivalent of tone-deaf, at least a little like his style.

It seems definitively like Leonard's own (re)drawing to me.

Here's piece of first poster, from AEG LIVE website:
