Diary Extra: Jimi Hendrix Plays Seattle for the Last Time

View Comments

On this day in 1970, Jimi Hendrix played in his home town of Seattle for the last time when he appeared at what stadium?

Answer: Sicks Stadium 

Sicks was a baseball stadium located in Washington’s Rainier Valley. Though it was mainly a baseball venue, it held some rock concerts like the early Hendrix.

He made his return home to play Sicks Stadium in 1970 for one last time.

Below is an authentic video from that historic concert. It was filmed with 8mm film and although the audio was not preserved, it is still an interesting article of rock anthropology.
