Jimi gave an inspired, eighty-five minute performance at the Dane County Memorial Coliseum in Madison, Wisconsin.
There were many highlights on this evening, including "Red House", which made its 1970 tour debut. "Machine Gun" and "Message To Love", both part of Jimi's recently issued Band Of Gypsys, were well performed and received enthusiastically by an audience estimated at 5,000. Jimi expanded his comments prefacing "Machine Gun", dedicating the performance not only to the soldiers in Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, and in Viet Nam but also those in Cambodia. The United States had entered Cambodia in the days prior to the concert and Jimi found a way through his music--in his own inimitable manner--to make his feelings known to his audience.
