I personally obtained this poster after the show at the Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte, North Carolina on August 8, 1998.
This is probably the only place where I can tell one of my "242 stories", so indulge me:
As a "wedding present", my fiance Samantha treated me with tickets to the 242 show in Atlanta, Georgia on August 7. We made a trek of about 366 miles to see the band! The show in Atlanta was fantastic as it had been several years since I had seen them live. After the show we hung out at the Masquerade club and Richard was hanging out from a balcony. Well my beautiful future-wife begins flirting with him and he gets us back into the club and we get autograph and photo ops with Richard, Jean-Luc (ever the shy one!), and Patrick. Richard then invites us to the "after party" which, for him, happens to be at the Gold Club, a notorious strip-joint in Atlanta. How could we say no!? So we hang with Richard and crew at a strip club until the wee hours of the morning... my fiance taking it all in, chatting with the strippers and having the time of her life! Richard invites us to the next show in Charlotte, North Carolina later that day. We crash in a hotel at around 4 a.m. for a few hours and then make the 258 mile trek to Charlotte! The Charlotte show was even better, probably because we got to hang with the band and be on the guest list. I remember the new Re:Booted version of Funkadafi being played and Richard and Patrick were very friendly and inviting, and we have struck up a friendship since! Of course I have my beautiful wife of now 11+ years to thank...and she never lets me forget it! (We then had to make a non-stop trip of almost 700+ miles back home!)
The poster itself measures 27" X 17" inches and is on a glossy stock. It features brilliant pinks, purples and blacks with artwork from the CD. This poster obviously has the concert date hand written at the bottom.
This is a great souvenir from that adventure and so I count it as "priceless!"
