…is headed to the big screen! On November 26th — the day before what would’ve been Jimi Hendrix‘s 70th birthday — his August 18th, 1969 closing set at Woodstock will be shown in theaters globally.
The press release for the Hendrix 70: Live From Woodstock event said: “Jimi’s fascinating road to the Woodstock festival is revealed by way of never before seen footage and interviews with his band members such as Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, engineer Eddie Kramer and Woodstock‘s promoter Michael Lang. Directed by Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton — known for his work on The Beatles Anthology, Hendrix’s Band Of Gypsys, and Festival Express — the documentary, which precedes the performance footage, reveals the struggle to stage the legendary festival and secure Hendrix as its headline artist.”
