Hendrix at the Royal Albert Hall documentary

Written by admin on November 26, 2010 – 7:58 pm -

Next year will see the release of a documentary movie chronicling Jimi Hendrix’s two gigs at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Hendrix played the Royal Albert Hall on February 18 and February 24, 1969. They were the last European appearances of the original line-up of the Jimi Hendrix Experience (Jimi Hendrix on guitar, Noel Redding on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums).

Janie Hendrix, Jimi’s half-sister and president/CEO of Experience Hendrix, told Billboard:

“It’s kind of a day in the life of Jimi, how we put it together. There were about four cameras that followed Jimi and the guys around in Europe and filmed the two concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as them coming off trains, planes and automobiles, signing autographs, Jimi backstage getting ready, in his apartment doing little apartment jams with his friends and then later playing the Speakeasy.”

A theatrical and DVD release is planned for the documentary, as well as a soundtrack album.

Janie Hendrix also said that 2012 will see the release of a film of Jimi’s performance at the 1968 Miami Pop Festival, making use of recently discovered footage.

The announcement follows last week’s release of remastered editions of three Hendrix albums (“Blues“, “Live at Woodstock” and “The BBC Sessions“), as well as the “West Coast Seattle Boy” 4CD/1DVD box set.
