with a little good will from everyone involved (ha), there doesnt have to be a conflict between tour posters and gig posters. in a sense they're different animals. a tour is national or whatever, a gig is local. tour posters can co-exist in the same venue and city. side by side. the analogy is: an artist designed a cd album cover, and then other artists may design the cd singles or ep covers. album=big tour. single or ep=gig. it's natural for the tour poster to be commissioned by the band people, the gig poster by the venue people.
