This poster featuring Archie Roach and Shane Howard has been signed by both men.

It's unusual for the support act to feature on a tour poster in quite this way but Shane Howard's portrait is included in the background behind Archie. This stylistic choice is probably a result of the fact that the two performers have been performing together for decades and often tour together. The bold design features the colours of the Australian Aboriginal flag (black, red and yellow) and the block text seems to aim for clarity of information. Being a full colour poster it would have 'jumped out' on any wall or noticeboard.

The photographer is Stephen Skok.
