Description

Ultra rare Jimi Hendrix Experience 1967 De Montfort Hall ticket stub Walker’s tour

Scarce ticket stub for the Jimi Hendrix Experience 1967 historic first ever tour opening up for the Walker Brothers. The ticket stub is for their appearance at De Montfort Hall in Leicester on April the 16th 1967 and it lists the main attractions including the Jimi Hendrix Experience that are on the show.

Also included is the original concert program, which measures 8 x 10.5, and features images and biographical information for the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Walker Brothers, Cat Stevens, Engelbert Humperdinck, Nick Jones, and The Californians. The program also includes an advertisement for the Hendrix single ‘Purple Haze / 51st Anniversary.’ Accompanied by a photo of Jimi sitting backstage with Cat Stevens, Humperdinck, and Gary Walker. In overall fine condition, with light handling wear to program.

Buried behind the chart-topping Walker Brothers, Cat Stevens, and Engelbert Humperdinck, the Jimi Hendrix Experience received modest billing at the start of the tour. By year's end they were one of the most sought-after tickets in live music, soaring high off the successful debut of Are You Experienced and their now-legendary performance at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival.
