Not the best poster but the one that means the most to me is the promo poster from the Fillmore concert, Oct '01.  That was my first live show and my wife's first real experience with the band.  She didn't know it at the time but it was her birthday present.  I scored better the next year by taking her to Brian Setzer Orchestra!

All you need is a ladder, a pair of pliers & some courage. 
There are still some PG posters nailed about 3 metres up on 
telegraph poles in his electorate. This has been a 
contentious issue on Sydney talkback radio, as it is illegal 
to display such posters after an election. 

The right wing talkback hosts are having a field day with 
this, claiming that PG should practice the Greenie policies 
he preaches & remove the "offensive" posters immediately. The 
recent wet weather is being blamed for the delay in removing 
the posters.

The irony is that the PG's Liberal opponent has just as many 
of his posters still up as well.

I guess you could try his electoral office - they may have 
some left over ?

Yep mine too. I remember they had a giant version of this 
poster at the Sydney Ent Centre during the BSM concerts in 
1990. It was huge. They still have a smaller version there as 
part of the poster archives around the foyer.

Another one i liked was the massive billboard along the M4 
motorway heading west towards Parramatta. It was the yellow 
giant hand and was advertising the gig at Parra Leagues 
(which turned out to be their last ever Sydney show) back in 
2002 It would have measured close to10 metres wide by 4 metres high
