- Vintage: 1988
- Details: This is a Rare, Guaranteed Authentic Mick Jagger Backstage All-Access Pass to his solo L.A.S.H tour . It is Unused (NOS- New Old Stock), in Pristine Condition, highly suitable for framing. This is one of a portfolio of ten different screen prints, (issued to VIPs, All Access, Technical hands, etc) all originally designed by Andy Warhol in 1975. The border and the back are foil-metallic, with white text that reads “L.A.S.H ’88”. If you look very closely, it is signed on the bottom left by Mick Jagger and on the right by Andy Warhol. The concert tour started on March, 15, 1988 and was used to promote Jagger’s “Primitive Cool” album released in 1987, his second solo album. It is laminated so will last a long while but lamination edges typically start to fray over time therefore, framing is suggested to keep it in this pristine condition. The pass was acquired from a friend of Toni Perri. Tony was the collection owner and has since passed away. These are very rare, a terrific gift for a Rolling Stone or Mick Jagger fan, or Rock Memorabilia collector.

This backstage pass is an extremely rare and important not only because of the Warhol art, but because it is a piece of the Jagger/Rolling Stones history. It was a time when Mick Jagger and the Stones were unsure of their future together as Jagger was concentrating on a solo career. It was also the first Japanese tour by any member of the Stones. The tour, which played in Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo, included eight shows and sold out in just a few hours. Even without the Stones, Jagger put together an amazing backup band that included: guitarist, Joe Satriani, bassist Doug Wimbish, drummer Simon Phillips, and guitarist Jimmy Rippalong along with some great background singers that included Bernard Fowler and Carol Kenyon. Even though the tour was a commercial success, it was disappointing to Jagger as he was also disappointed with his career as a solo artist. This was greatly apparent during this tour, by the time he played Tokyo, Jagger was performing over 22 songs from the Stones and only six songs from his solo albums. In a late-1988 interview with Rolling Stones magazine, it was yet even more apparent that he would consider reconciling with the Stones but was still unsure of how the future would play out. We all know how that turned out, The Rolling Stones are one of the oldest bands still playing today. If you’re curious we’ll save you the trouble of looking it up, the other two are: 1.Golden Earring, started in 1961, 2.The Beach Boys, 1961 and 3.The Rolling Stones, 1962.
