:Review by Wayne Harada for Billboard Magazine, August 29th 1970
H.I.C. Arena, Honolulu
Call it drawing strength: Jimi Hendrix had a sell-out house of 8,400 in his third Island appearance in as many years. He displayed his audio-visual hurricane Experience Aug. 1 at the H.I.C. Arena.
It was a trip to Decibel City: a cacophony of electrical storms, coupled with a blizzard of frenzied artistry. It was loud and lethal for the senses, but the wizard of the whining guitar had warned his audience early in the program: “It’s going to be loud. It will get louder. It will get loudest.” He wasn’t kidding.
The audience of hip and young folk dug it. Hendrix appeared, looking like a Madam Butterfly in his Kimono-sleeved outfit with psychedelic oranges and greens, and his music was equally colorful: emphatic, trance-like, piercing, ranting, riveting.
There were the landmarks: “Foxy Lady,” “Purple Haze.” Plus some bonus ramblings, such as “Easy Rider.” The now-classic “Star-Spangled Banner” enabled Hendrix to indulge in theatrics, simulating machine-gun fire and bombs bursting in air.
