Big Tickets

Big Tickets is a 5,775-square-foot mural that captures the often-untold story of Nashville’s rich and diverse music history across all genres of music. The piece is a hand-painted collage of 62 concert stubs from real Nashville shows, featuring 120 artists who influenced each other across genres and generations. 

Tickets span from the early 1900s through the present day, many with special ties to this neighborhood, taking particular inspiration from the history of United Record Pressing and The Motown Suite on Chestnut Street. 

Big Tickets was a creative collaboration between AJ Capital, Studio Delger, and Eastside Murals.



  • Ella Sheppard Moore, one of the original Fisk Jubilee Singers, was interred in 1914 in The Nashville City Cemetery. The panel facing this cemetery features a 1914 Fisk show at the Ryman.
  • Muddy Waters was discovered by John Work III, a director of the Fisk Jubilee Singers. Muddy’s song “Rollin’ Stone” inspired the band name for The Rolling Stones.
  • The mural features a 1972 Rolling Stones show where 22-year-old Stevie Wonder opened with “Superstition.” This is the same year, “Superstition” was pressed on vinyl at United Record Pressing on Chestnut Street.
