Avid collector from Vintage Rock Posters Announces his search for original 1970 Jimi Hendrix Sicks Stadium Seattle rock n roll concert posters. When Hendrix was 14 years old, he could not afford a ticket to see the Elvis Presley concert at Sicks Stadium so he watched the concert on Tightwad Hill that overlooks the stadium. Hendrix returned to the Sick Stadium 13 years later to play there himself on July 26, 1970. According to Hawley, “It was a rainy day. By all accounts, the band was off and subdued. However, Hendrix enjoyed the company of his father and step sister that day at the show. The Sicks concert was Hendrix’s last show in his hometown. The Hendrix Sicks concert poster measures 14 x 22 inches and was printed on thick cardboard. It was was designed and printed by the Washington Poster Company based in Seattle. The layout features a illustration of Hendrix playing his guitar. About 500 of these posters were printed and hung locally to advertise for the show. The Washington Poster Company printed a similar for the Janis Joplin concert held earlier on July 5. There is no image of Joplin on the poster” For examples of Hendrix and Joplin boxing style concert posters, please go to http://www.vintageconcertposterbuyer.com/boxing_style/jimi_hendrix.html.
