In Celebration of the 70th Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's birth, fans will — for the first time ever — see his complete August 1969 Woodstock concert in select cinemas, with screenings in late November and early December.

Hendrix 70: Live At Woodstock will see a worldwide theatrical release by Omniverse Vision with the first limited screenings on November 26.

This special edition theatrical presentation, under the auspices of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. has been carefully reassembled from the extensive archive of film footage helmed by Academy Award winning director Michael Wadleigh.

What they captured was a Hendrix performance unlike any other. The guitarist premiered a new band and his extraordinary performance on that August morning included unforgettable renditions of such signature Hendrix songs as "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)," "Fire," "Purple Haze" and "Foxy Lady" as well as his dramatic interpretation of the "Star Spangled Banner."

Hendrix's fascinating road to the Woodstock festival is revealed by way of never before seen footage and interviews with his band members such as Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, engineer Eddie Kramer, and Woodstock's promoter Michael Lang.

Directed by Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton [Beatles Anthology, Band Of Gypsys, Festival Express], the documentary, which precedes the performance footage, reveals the struggle to stage the legendary festival and secure Hendrix as its headline artist.

Hendrix 70: Live At Woodstock features the original 16mm footage digitally restored together with a new 5.1 audio surround mix by legendary engineer Eddie Kramer, who originally recorded the Woodstock festival and also worked with Jimi as his recording engineer throughout his entire career.

Songs performed in original sequence:

  1. Message To Love

  2. Spanish Castle Magic

  3. Red House

  4. Lover Man

  5. Foxy Lady

  6. Jam Back At The House

  7. Izabella

  8. Fire

  9. Voodoo Child (Slight Return)

  10. Star Spangled Banner

  11. Purple Haze

  12. Woodstock Improvisation

  13. Villanova Junction

  14. Hey Joe
