It’s with great pleasure we can offer this exceedingly rare, original Jimi Hendrix concert handbill for the FIRST TIME in our auction. It was produced for the legendary guitarist’s appearance at Sicks’ Stadium in Seattle, Washington on July 26, 1970. This concert took place less than two months before Jimi’s sad passing, and was his second to last concert performed in America. 

 

During July 1970, Hendrix spent several weeks in New York, recording new material at Electric Lady studios. The sessions were interrupted by a quick jaunt to the west coast for 2 shows, the first in San Diego on July 25th, and this concert in his hometown of Seattle on the 26th. When he arrives, he’s met at the airport by a large gathering of friends and family. 

 

It would be his final hometown show. The concert that evening at Sicks' Stadium was slightly hampered by rain, however Jimi’s performance featured blistering versions of newer songs like “Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)” and “Freedom”. Hendrix’s father and sister were backstage during the show. Cactus, Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys also performed opening sets. Three days later, Jimi traveled to Hawaii for his last show in America before traveling to Europe. 

 

Last year, we offered the poster for this concert in our August auction and it realized $18,000. The handbill is also rare within itself. The collectibles world will be watching as advanced collectors fight it out for the right to add this handbill to their collection! Bid accordingly, as this may be your ONLY CHANCE to acquire one of the most desirable Hendrix items EVER produced!
