The Jimi Hendrix Experience's two gigs at the Royal Albert Hall, on February 18 and 24, 1969, were their first and final headline performances at the iconic venue. Tensions had been growing between band members and management for several months, but these were put aside for these two concerts, which would be remembered as some of the band’s best and most successful late performances. Throwing out their usual set list, Hendrix and the band instead included several of his blues songs, including 'Hear My Train a Comin’,' 'Red House,' and 'Bleeding Heart.' These shows would be the final European performances by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and would go on to immortalize Jimi’s legacy.
