Elton John Los Angeles 1975 Poster By Matt Ryan Tobin Release

Iconic by Collectionzz is releasing an official poster for Elton John for his historic concert at Dodgers Stadium in October 1975, which was recently featured in the movie “Rocket Man.”

The poster was illustrated by Matt Ryan Tobin, who discussed the poster with them. “I wanted the poster to feel like it could've been used to promote the show in 1975.” Matt researched vintage baseball card designs to create the poster's unique look, fusing that influence with his subject’s distinct aesthetic. “There were bones there to work with that I took note of but at the end of the day the card design needed to be elevated with that Elton style and flare.” Keen observers may notice the reflection of a rocket ship in John’s glasses. The subtle addition was Tobin’s nod to the classic tune “Rocket Man.” "I try to incorporate something subtle in all of my work that you might not see at first glance," the artist admits. "The baseball card composition needed just a little something more. A wink, if you will. Even the flashes of the cameras intentionally bleed into the sky with the stars; the entire feeling is cosmic in nature...which was the direction that was always at the forefront of my mind.”
