FOR THE MUSIC-LOVER
They listen to the album on repeat, they’ve got the t-shirt – but do they have the 1969 Madison Square Gardens ticket stub? We didn’t think so. Turn up the volume on your Christmas gift with a limited edition print from Tape Deck Art.
Hand painted in his studio in Milton Keynes, Tony Dennis (artist and ticket collector) creates exact replicas of original tickets from the world’s greatest gigs, including the likes of The Clash and The Rolling Stones.
