HEN0090 – Jimi Hendrix 1970 Winter Carnival For Peace Handbill (USA)

£800.00

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.
