It’s not a reproduction of the original gig poster. it's a new design.

The Colston Hall commissioned a number of reimagined posters for their 150th anniversary. See https://www.colstonhall.org/shop/category/150th-anniversary/ - where the poster is still available for £35.

Joy Division were the support act to the Buzzcocks that night so there is no way the original poster would have looked anything like this.

Your post was fine - and it gave me the opportunity to provide a link where the posters are for sale at £35.

i bought one of these as it is a local venue and they are good quality posters.
