24-october-1967 Jimi Hendrix Experience

DATE: Tuesday, 24th, October, 1967
LOCATION: 90 Wardour Street
MAIN ACT: Jimi Hendrix Experience
BAND MEMBERS: Jimi Hendrix (guitar, vocals), Noel Reading (bass), Mitch Mitchell (drums)

Jimi Hendrix had already appeared at the Marquee club in January 1967 taking the club by storm and breaking all the records of attendance. This was the second concert of the guitarist at the club and it still remains as a legendary moment in the history of rock music. At the moment Hendrix was already an internationally consecrated artist after having toured the United States and played at the Monterrey Pop festival.

The supporting act was the Nice, who later soon supported Hendrix on a UK tour during the autumn of 1967 along with Pink Floyd and the Move. The tour would be the beginning of a close friendship between Jimi Hendrix and The Nice's keyboardist Keith Emerson.
