    Jimi Hendrix

    When: September 6, 1970 Where: Isle of Fehmarn Festival, Germany

    A mere 12 days before his death, Jimi Hendrix took the stage at Germany's Isle of Fehmarn Festival during his band's European tour. Met with some boos and jeers from an audience that had expected to see the legendary guitarist headline the night prior, Hendrix performed in the midst of an evening that would end with festival goers burning part of the stage. Disgruntled for much of the tour, Hendrix returned to London shortly after performing at Fehmarn. He died on September 18, 1970.
