Poster of the Week: ReBoot 98 Minneapolis, MN

Here we have an interesting poster from the Re:Boot '98 Tour. This was a "comeback" tour of sorts as Front 242 had returned with its newly updated ("Re:Booted") sound and an extensive tour across the United States followed.

Here we have a poster from the August 21, 1998 show at "The Quest" in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Apparently this club was originally started by Prince. Unfortunately it now appears to be closed, or has changed names over the last decade. Here is an article about its passing:

This black & white poster measures 11 by 17 inches and is printed on regular paper stock. I refer to this and other posters like it as "242 Mash-up." Here we see design elements from several different Front 242 eras, thrown together. Personally I am not a big fan of mixing these elements.
This poster is somewhat of a departure in that most of the Re:Boot Tour posters featured  the beautiful artwork from the CD release. Also the opening act was "And One"...whereas Project Pitchfork opened for much of the tour.
