HEN0090 – Jimi Hendrix 1970 Winter Carnival For Peace Handbill (USA)
An original handbill for the Winter Carnival For Peace held on 28th January 1970 at Madison Square Garden, New York. The show, produced by Sid Bernstein, was a fundraiser for the anti-war movement at the time and featured performances by Jimi Hendrix, Harry Belafonte and Dave Brubeck amongst others. Suffering from exhaustion and the effects of a drink laced with an unknown substance taken before the show, Hendrix only managed to complete two songs before he walked offstage. The handbill contains a list of artists appearing along with a thank you list of patrons who had paid for one thousand dollar, one hundred dollar and fifty dollar seats at the event. It measures 21.5cm x 32.5cm (8.5 inches x 12.75 inches). It has horizontal and vertical crease lines from being previously folded. The condition of the handbill is very good.
