BILLIE HOLIDAY (1958) UK promotional flyer$1,750.00
London: Harold Davison Ltd., . Vintage original British promotional flyer. There is a hint of creasing in the extreme upper left, just about fine.
An extremely scarce concert flyer for the great Billie Holiday, who had little more than a year left to live. She had been scheduled to do a three week engagement at the Olympia Theatre in Paris, with this concert something extra that her manager had arranged for her.
But the Algerian Crisis happened shortly before her tour was to start; when the French government closed all Parisian concert halls, one ancillary effect was the cancellation of Holiday’s entire European concert itinerary. Hence, this is a flyer for a concert which never happened.
