Jimi Hendrix

A striking handbill for a performance by Jimi Hendrix at the Will Rogers Coliseum in Ft. Worth, Texas, on 9th May 1970, during The Cry of Love Tour. The concert was a makeup show for a cancelled performance at the Will Rogers Coliseum, originally scheduled for 27th September 1969.

After experimenting with different lineups following the breakup of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Hendrix replaced Noel Redding with bassist Billy Cox and brought back Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell to record and tour. Hendrix continued to perform Experience numbers along with newer material that he was developing for a fourth album, recording at his newly operational Electric Lady Studios in between tour dates.

After the Love & Peace Festival in Fehmarn, Germany, on 6th September 1970, the tour was cut short due to Cox's illness, and Hendrix died twelve days later. Featuring a photograph by Karl Ferris set against a vibrant psychedelic purple, this groovy handbill was no doubt inspired by Hendrix's hit song Purple Haze.
