Jimi Hendrix Rotterdam 1967


Jimi Hendrix Rotterdam 1967, hand-drawn portrait of Jimi applying his 1963 White Stratocaster against his Marshall stack creating some feedback hum for the opening of “Purple Haze”; Rotterdam, Holland in 1967.

On Friday, November 10, 1967 at 10am, Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding departed by plane from London to Amsterdam.
After 5pm, they left for Rotterdam and arrived at the old Ahoy complex where the Hippy Happy Market was being held.

There were about 40 stands lined up with all kinds of interesting stuff for the swinging teenager.
From clothes and records, to coin-operated amusements and motor bikes. In other words, a warehouse for teenagers.

The musical program for this five-day market event included, among others, Pink Floyd, The Bee Gees, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

The JHE concert started at 10pm. Jimi took up his usual position on the left side of the stage, behind him four 100 watt Marshall stacks.
Plus two Stratocasters and the Gibson ‘Flying V’ lined up in front of the speakers, with 3,000 fans in attendance.
Jimi began very nice and modest by saying, “I don’t know what you’re used to over here, but take care of your ears. You might as well stand back a little.”
And then, very quickly, the whole pack shoved backwards.”

The show lasted 55 minutes.
The following songs were performed: “Stone Free,” “Manic Depression”, “Hey Joe,” a number from the Axis: Bold As Love LP (possibly “Little Miss Lover”), “The Wind Cries Mary,” “Foxy Lady,” “The Burning Of The Midnight Lamp,” and “Purple Haze” (including the teeth act and testing a Marshall amp for durability via Jimi’s attacking white Fender Strat).
