Andrew Hawley, from Vintage Rock Posters, announces his search for original Jimi Hendrix 1968 Hilton Hotel Washington DC Concert Posters. Hendrix played two shows on March 10, 1968. According to Hawley, "Jimi Hendrix played in front of 4,000 fans. This was the same hotel where John Hinkley shot President Reagan thirteen years later. Durwood Settles was the promoter. Many fans there wondered if Hendrix would set his guitar on fire and smash it as he did at the Monterey Pop Festival nine months earlier."
Hawley adds," The famous psychedelic rock n roll concert poster artist Dail Beeghly created the poster for the Hendrix concert. Dail Beeghly produced many classic 1960s psychedelic rock posters for The Doors, Janis Joplin and two other Hendrix concerts in Columbia, Maryland and Atlanta, Georgia.The poster measures approximately 17x22 inches and was printed on construction paper and features bright day-glow lettering surrounded by a classic Jim Hendrix Experience promo photo. Beeghly in the Atlanta and the Merriaweather post concert posters uses a psychedelic rendition of The Experience band as the main artwork for both posters. In contrast, he used a stock promo photo for the Hilton concert poster. The colors and photo work well together in the Hilton poster."
Hawley is willing to pay $3,000 cash for the Jimi Hendrix 1968 Hilton Hotel Washington DC Concert Poster or any other original 1967-1970 Jimi Hendrix psychedelic or boxing style concert posters. Please call 310-346-1965 or email andrew (at) vintageconcertposterbuyer.com.
