The Day the Music Died

On February 3, 1959, a small-plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa killed three American rock and roll musicians: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson, as well as the pilot, Roger Peterson. The day was later called The Day the Music Died by Don McLean, in his song "American Pie." Had they not crashed, they would have played at the Aragon Ballroom a few days later as part of their Winter Dance Party tour. What a concert that would have been!

Does anyone out there have images of concert posters or newspaper ads advertising the show at the Aragon? I'd love to find one to post here; the one above is a generic image from the tour.

The tour actually met up in Chicago on January 20th for a rehearsal at the Willoughby Tower building on Michigan Ave. If I'm not mistaken, the posters were primarily the generic ones sent by the General Artists Corporation (like the one you posted), with the venue/date info filled out by hand. Check with Bill Griggs, an expert on all things Holly. He may be able to steer you in the right direction!

Thanks, ChicagoMike! I'll follow up on that.
