    Hi Fabio

    They're both good. For a tour poster you can't go wrong with pictures of the band, so I'd say go with the 2color version.

    I also like them both, but the first one with the band seems to slightly edge out the other one.

    I like the first one, but I think the band name could be bigger. You could make the guys wear glasses in the shape of XP8 like the ones people wear on New Year's Eve.
    (FYI You should really be using more fingers when you hold a poster.)

    As has been said, both are good; but I prefer the 2nd one. The info takes precedence, and the amalgamous imagery generates some mystery. Plus the layout is cool. On the first one, you kinda have to hunt for the info. The band folks be well-rendered, though.

    I like the first one better, but yeah, the XP8 might be too hidden.
    If you do use the second one, I think you have a typo, it says 2001-2001.

    thanks for your hints folks, all of them have a point, and ultimately the band loves the second so I guess we'll go with that even if my guts tell me that the first one once printed could kick ass

    Great job with these posters. Both of them look really well-conceptualized and designed. I do have to say that the person on the first poster looks like two-face from the Batman.
