Concert poster for a May 9th, 1969 "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" show at the Charlotte Coliseum. Coming off of a great year for Hendrix, where he was voted number one artist for 1968 by Billboard and Cashbox Trade Magazines, as well as leading album seller. As part of his 1969 North American Tour, Jimi Hendrix planned a concert in Charlotte, North Carolina. At the Coliseum, Hendrix played to a sold out crowd in Charlotte with the cheapest ticket being only $3. While not mentioned on the poster the band Chicago Transit Authority opened for Hendrix, alongside Buddy Miles Express, and The Cat Mother. Also according to setlist.fm the actual setlist differed from what is on the poster as well.
