A peek inside Wolfgang’s Vault

When Pigs Fly: This poster was designed by artist Randy Tuten for Pink Floyd’s May 9-10 shows in 1977 on their In the Flesh tour. The tour was to promote their album “Animals,” which included an inflatable pig on the album cover. The band actually flew a massive pig outside some of the venues on the tour.
