Mitchell and Redding are joined by nearly forty British musicians, including the Move, Traffic, John Mayall, and Eric Burdon on a charter flight from Heathrow to Kloten airport in Zurich, Switzerland. Upon arrival the bands take part in an afternoon press reception. Hendrix arrives later in the afternoon, after flying to Zurich from New York. This grand event, dubbed Pop-Montserkonzert was to feature two successive nights of performances at the Hallenstadion in Zurich, Switzerland. Each night kicked off with a fashion show by local boutique, Bernie’s. Once the fashions were put aside, a series of bands – one after the other – took to the stage, including: Anselmo Trend, Sauterelles, Hardy Hepp, the Koobas, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Traffic, the Move, Eric Burdon and the New Animals, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The Experience’s 50+ minute set included: “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Stone Free,” “I Don’t Live Today,” “Red House,” “Hey Joe,” “Foxey Lady,” “Manic Depression,” “Fire,” and “Purple Haze.”
