Leeds (International Club) 11 mars 1967
Pas de setlist connu.
"As part of a mini-tour of the North of England, Jimi played the International Club, a converted synagogue in Chapeltown…
His standing at that point is best shown by the fee for the gig - 22 pounds and 10 shillings, at least half the usual fee for an act with some kind of reputation. However, by the time of the gig, "Hey Joe" had reached the Top Ten and his second UK single, "Purple Haze" had just been released, so really we should have garnered some interest."
He played the Club A Go Go in Newcastle then arrived in Leeds for his gig at The International Club on 11 March 1967. The International was basically a black-run blues club in Chapeltown and in retrospect maybe wasn't the ideal venue for a rock act (even a black one). Consequently the gig was poorly attended and of those that did turn up, one or two were less than impressed - one guy accosted Jimi outside and shouted: "Hendrix, you're sh*t"!!"
