Jimi Hendrix’s Last Concert – 43 Years Ago Today
On September 6, 1970, Hendrix played his last live show at Germany’s Open Air Love and Peace Festival. The concert was delayed for a day because of rain, but Hendrix insisted on playing for the fans that came to the festival solely for his performance. Little did anyone know it would be his last.
Legend has it that Hendrix’ final appearance on stage was days later when he sat in with Eric Burdon and War for an impromptu jam session at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho. Hendrix was found dead on Friday, Sept. 18, 1970. He was 27 years old.
Jimi’s Final Setlist:
Spanish Castle Magic
All Along the Watchtower
Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)
Message to Love
Room Full of Mirrors
Voodoo Child (Slight Return)

“It was an exercise book filled with his stories, poems, drawings and cartoons. He used to show his work to… Pete Shotton before he let anyone else see it. Pete was his best mate at Quarry Bank and I think John wrote ‘The Daily Howl’ mainly for him.”
