MICHIGAN PALACE DETROIT ROCK VENUE POSTER 1973-1976 19" X 13" Ready for Display, Shipped Flat, Bagged and Boarded by Grande Ballroom Poster Artist Carl Lundgren Printed In Detroit MI USA The Michigan Palace was located on Bagley Avenue in Detroit and served as a concert venue from 1973-1976. Many of the top rock acts of the 1970s performed there, including David Bowie, The Stooges, The New York Dolls, Aerosmith, Bob Seger, Rush, Iron Butterfly, Blue Oyster Cult and Badfinger. Whenever you hear someone tell you a story about when they saw one of these up and coming stars at The Michigan Palace, it's hard for them to remember the exact date and what songs they played. Lundgren had an early interest in becoming a fantasy artist and illustrator like Frank Frazetta, his idol. At the age of 18, he was co-chairman of the first multimedia science fiction convention, The Detroit Triple Fan Fair, featuring comics, movies and science fiction. He studied with the Famous Artists School correspondence course, for formal training. In 1967 Lundgren met rock poster artist Gary Grimshaw, who was illustrating posters for a Detroit rock venue, run by Russ Gibb, called the Grande Ballroom. Grimshaw offered him a job, and Lundgren went on to create poster art for seminal bands such as The Who, Jeffers...
