Back Stage Passes 1971-1998

Physical Description: Approx. 1500 Back Stage Passes

Scope and Content Summary

Backstage passes are usually printed fabric stickers about the size of a playing card that allowed access to a restricted area of a venue, where journalists and guests would be entertained during a performance. Designed to be used in conjunction with a ticket, backstage passes could be simple abstract designs or images derived from mass media, popular culture, or even band members’ children’s doodles. Unlike laminates, which tended to feature artwork commissioned specifically for that purpose, backstage passes tended to be simpler and more casual, often more whimsical, and generally disposable. Over time, the standard rectangular shape was augmented with passes featuring a wide variety of sizes and shapes, from circles to triangles.

Arrangement

This material is arranged chronologically by venue.
Online images may be viewed at Grateful Dead Online Archive (GDAO) beginning in June 2012.

Tickets 1968-2008

Physical Description: Approx. 1090 tickets

Scope and Content Summary

Grateful Dead tickets can be grouped into several categories, roughly corresponding to era. In the 1960s, rock promoter Bill Graham quickly recognized the utility of reproducing concert poster images in business card sized tickets in an effort to impede counterfeits, usually stamped along the bottom or back with the day of the show. These tickets are the most highly prized, collected along with handbills and posters for the concerts. In the 1980s, the band pioneered the direct sale of tickets to fans via mail order, creating tickets that often featured graphics incorporating band logos and motifs. Tickets for special events such as New Year’s Eve were often works of art in their own right. By contrast, tickets printed at outlets such as BASS (Bay Area Seating Service) and Ticketmaster were created with a strictly information-only template using a thermal ink printing process that did not hold up well over time, with the lettering often fading quickly.

Arrangement

Material is arranged chronologically by venue.
Online images may be viewed at Grateful Dead Online Archive (GDAO) beginning in June 2012.

Laminates 1978-2005

Physical Description: 38 laminates

Scope and Content Summary

Laminates are small, playing card-sized badges made of either printed cardboard sealed in plastic or printed plastic, usually designating an entire tour but sometimes only a single show or run of shows at a single venue. Worn on a lanyard or clipped to outer clothing, laminates serve as identification for band, band family, crew, or touring staff, providing access to secure areas, including backstage and performer areas. Over time, increasingly sophisticated designs intended to thwart counterfeit efforts (nicknamed “scaminates” by enterprising fans) supplanted the simple identification badge style common in the 1970s, giving rise to beautifully artistic efforts such as those by Timothy Truman, featured in the book Access All Areas: Backstage with the Grateful Dead (Grateful Dead Books, 1998). The interplay between art and security produced striking designs that incorporated cutting-edge production techniques that made successful unauthorized duplication all but impossible. Laminates obviated the need for a ticket, unlike a backstage pass.

Arrangement

This material is arranged chronologically by venue.
Online images may be viewed at Grateful Dead Online Archive (GDAO) beginning in June 2012.
