(two different posters)
Dunelm House posters
March 20, 1969

3c) Dunelm House poster
Date & Venue: Dunelm House, Durham University Students' Centre, Durham University, Durham City, England, March 20, 1968
Bands: Pink Floyd, Doctor K's Blues Band.
Poster Size: 30" x 20"
Notes: Two posters for a Pink Floyd concert at Dunelm House on March 20, 1969. The first lists Doctor K's Blues Band as the support act. This poster was sold by Bonham's Auction House in 2010 and again in 2013 as an original poster. The second poster lists the band Juice as the support act. This poster is on the band Juice's web site and on the site they remember playing with Pink Floyd on this date. So perhaps the support act was changed before the show and a new poster was made, or the second poster with Juice is a clever forgery.
