New Fillmore Series
The New Fillmore Series began on March 4, 1988 with a poster designed by Kate Graham for a Hot Tuna show at San Francisco’s newly reopened Fillmore Auditorium. After a series of highly successful shows, Graham was forced to close the venue in the aftermath of 1989’s Loma Prieta Earthquake, in which The Fillmore was severely damaged. Following Bill Graham’s death in October 1991, the employees of Bill Graham Presents worked to finish one of Graham’s final projects—renovation of The Fillmore Auditorium. In April 1994, The Fillmore reopened. It continues to operate today, offering the best of the current popular music, and showcasing the talents of today’s poster artists.
