Black Sabbath AJ Masthay Calgary Poster Release Details

Black Sabbath really did a great job with a this line up of artists. AJ Masthay did the poster for the show in Calgary Friday night and he killed it.

AJ talks about the very long process:
This one has been a long time coming... BLACK F'in SABBATH!!! Couldn't be more ecstatic to create an edition for the godfathers of metal. Unreal.

Little story behind these, the original show date was February 1st but Ozzy was dealing with a serious bout of sinusitis and unfortunately they rescheduled the show. That call wasn't made until a day or two prior to the event though so these prints had already been completed and sent to Calgary. Luckily the design of the image allowed me to revise the original edition by blacking out the text and reprinting the new date over it. So the prints were shipped back to Connecticut from Canada and went through the press two more times to get the new date printed. A lot of miles behind this one and multiple international border crossings, but I think it's all worth it - hope you do too!
