It’s been a big day for big-screen concert announcements, as this is the second of three that have landed here at Rock Father HQ

As a part of the celebration of the 70th Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix‘s Birth, JIMI HENDRIX: LIVE AT WOODSTOCK will be screened at select cinemas around the world between November 28-December 5 as HENDRIX 70: LIVE AT WOODSTOCK. This is the first time that the historic concert from August, 1969 will hit U.S. theaters.

From the official announcement:

This special edition theatrical presentation has been carefully reassembled from the extensive archive of film footage helmed by Academy Award winning director Michael Wadleigh and his hand picked team of skilled camera operators and support personnel under the auspices of Experience Hendrix, LLC, the Hendrix family owned company. What they captured was a Jimi Hendrix performance unlike any other. Jimi premiered a new band and his extraordinary performance on that August morning included unforgettable renditions of such signature Hendrix songs as “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Fire,” “Purple Haze” and “Foxey Lady” as well as his dramatic interpretation of the “Star Spangled Banner”.

Jimi’s fascinating road to the Woodstock festival is revealed by way of never before seen footage and interviews with his band members such as Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, engineer Eddie Kramer and Woodstock’s promoter Michael Lang. Directed by Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton [Beatles Anthology, Band Of Gypsys, Festival Express], the documentary, which precedes the performance footage, reveals the struggle to stage the legendary festival and secure Hendrix as its headline artist.

Jimi Hendrix Woodstock performance stands as one of the finest ever in rock music history. This presentation features the original 16mm footage digitally restored together with a new 5.1 audio surround mix by legendary engineer Eddie Kramer. Kramer originally recorded the Woodstock festival and also served Jimi Hendrix as his recording engineer throughout his entire career.
