Pearl Jam 20 Anniversary show at Alpine Valley Music Theatre by Justin Hampton.
Justin Hampton -I was commisioned by Pearl Jam to create their 20th anniversary event poster. They wanted something very special to commemorate the occaison so I worked directly with Jeff Ament on the concept. The theme is a riff on the famous Norman Rockwell ‘Freedom of want’ print. At the head of the table is Neil Young & Gloria Steinem as musical & cultural influences and below them are the band members as kids of that actual generation. From top to bottom on the left are: Jeff Ament, Eddie Vedder & Boom. Top to bottom on the right are Stone Gossard, Mike McCready and Matt Cameron. I worked from photos of them all as kids that I was supplied by their management. Designing the 20th poster was extra special for me as I was at & sold their merch 20 years before at their very 1st show at The Offramp in Seattle when they were named Mookie Blaylock. It was very full circle for me
It’s an eight color screen print with glow in the dark ink on 100 lb acid free paper stock measuring 18”x 24”. Signed and numbered in a very limited variant edition of only 200 prints.
