While I love Tom’s ode to Chicago, the real reason I’m writing this post is because of the amazing Halloween themed concert poster set he designed for Pearl Jam’s four night stay at Philadelphia’s The Spectrum. If you haven’t heard already, The Spectrum closed for good after Pearl Jam’s final show there on Halloween 2009. Pearl Jam played four shows at The Spectrum, October 27th, 28th, 30th and 31st, and played almost every song the band has ever recorded. To go along with Pearl Jam’s four shows in Philly, Tomorrow designed four posters (1 for each night) that could stand alone individually or, when placed next to each other, form one giant retro pop culture costume party themed image.

According to Tomorrow, “since these were for a series of shows the week of Halloween, my idea was to have a giant retro pop-culture costume-party theme - superheroes, robots, space people, monsters, etc., along with a number of band-related/requested ‘cameos’ in the background, all (at least in my mind’s eye) comprising the audience to the last shows at the Spectrum.”
If you are interested in purchasing these awesome Halloween inspired Pearl Jam concert posters, Tom Tomorrow will most likely be selling a signed and numbered edition of these sometime early next year, around February or so. They’ll be available as complete sets of four only, and an exact price has not yet been set. If you’re interested in a set, Tom’s compiling a waiting list which you can add your name to by sending an email to him at tom(dot)tomorrow (at) gmail (dot) com with “Philly waiting list” in the subject line. Please note, you are not placing an actual order and he is not taking any money at this time. But when he does eventually do the sale, priority will be given to those on the list.
