Poster Anecdote: Pink Floyd announced that they would be bringing The Wall concerts to New York with a mid-week full page ad in the New York Times. This ad only listed three shows at the Nassau Coliseum, on February 24th, 25th and 26th. No posters were made for these three shows, and tickets for the shows sold out immediately.
After the first three announced shows sold out, an additional two shows were announced a few days later, to be held on February 27th and 28th. Since these were the only Wall concerts to be performed anywhere in the eastern United States, tickets for the two additional shows were restricted in the metroploitan New York area to allow out-of-towners a chance to buy tickets. No posters were made for these shows either, and tickets sold out immediately upon going on sale.
No posters for any of the New York shows were ever made until after the concerts.
