T-REX Fans can look back at one of the first US Concerts with this package. On April 24,1971 T-REX played a show at St. Andrews Church at Washington & Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia with their opening act Sir Lord Baltimore . This package contains a mint condition full ticket from the event and a copy of the original newspaper advertisement for the show. With this package is the ORIGINAL contract between the band and the promoters , Bud Becker and Barry Richards . The management for T-REX, E.G.Management Furnished the Services for T-REX signed the document. Barry Richards as Promoter also signed. Both signatures are in ink and all text and typed text is still easy to read ( rather pristine considering it's age ). The original contract for the event between Promoter and Hall is included and the original invoice for the 4/24/71 T-REX concert tickets is also for your collection. The ticket invoice fully describes the ordered lots for that event... it's a nice backup to insure you have the authentic ticket ! I have included copies of two original promotional photos sent to use for advertising purposes by the promoter. The group shot copied well but the second copied with a bit of a flaw due to the way they had been stored over the years. ( The close up of Marc Bolan remains invaluable to his fans even with a blemish on the print) . Both photos are the standard 8 x 10, black and white glossy. One of the items I have included in this T-Rex concert package makes it rare and unique as it gives a nod to the era the concert was given... 1971. Included is a copy of the press release from the promoters inviting Viet Nam Veterans to receive a discount ticket! PLEASE read my description of items offered carefully. I have offered this T-REX package in several versions over the last year always including an original ticket from the show but this is the first and will be the ONLY time I offer the ORIGINAL Entertainment Contract and Hall Contract for the date. My husband happened to be one of the promoters and owners of Domestic Sound Production so I can guarantee all photos, ticket and documents in this offer. We have been caring for these concert files for 30+ years...our memories and work need to move on to new eyes of fans or collectors. It is our hope they will do so wit h the awe we have felt each time we opened one and could remember those magical nights of music in the early 70's. Good Memorabilia, Great Memories. Read carefully, If you have any questions or concerns please email me. If you happened to have been at St Andrews Church at Washington Lee High School in Arlington, VA for this T-REX Show on the night of April 24,1971 please email a thought! This auction will give the T-Rex fan some treasures but for the Rock and Roll Music Historian it is a first hand look into aspects of the early years of the business. All items in this package will be presented to you in a file folder and in an order that will allow the contents to flow for a full appreciation of this concert event. ENJOY!
