Light My Sparkler. More rare Doors memorabilia.

lightposterHere’s a very rare Doors 1968 Concert Tour Poster, sold at a limited number of tour dates during their 1968 US tour, as was the scarce but more common program. This example is signed by photographer and Jim Morrison friend Paul Ferrara in the white area of the bass drum.

Here’s how it’s described on doors.com website.

1968 The Doors ‘Light My Fire’ Tour Poster.
(17″ x 21″) ORIGINAL 1st and only edition poster. These are the infamous posters that were sold by The Doors at the same time as The Doors Tour Programs. But as rare as the tour programs are, these posters turn up even less frequently. These are EXTREMELY RARE!

According to the Doors authorized website, this program was “To be sold to fans for one dollar starting on March 1, 1969–the opening tour date in Miami, Florida at the Dinner Key Auditorium–remaining copies went into storage after the tour was cancelled following the controversial Miami concert, to be destroyed after Jim Morrison’s death.”

The image for the cover of both these items was taken from this photo by photographer and Jim Morrison friend, Paul Ferrara.
