Flickr member bobompicture provided the following photos and description of this event online, check them out below:
"Jimi playing Voodo Child as I remember. Unknown stage hand on right . The police threw pepper gas at people trying to sneak into concert and 30,000 got gassed. This was at Mile High stadium. We tore down the chicken wire seperating the crowd from the artists and stormed the stage. I was in the front row- Other artists at the three day fest two weeks prior to Woodstock included Frank Zappa, Credence Clearwater, Three Dog Night, Iron Butterfly, Big Mama Thorton, Flock, Spirit. It cost $15.00 for three days!"
"This is one of the last photos taken of Noel Redding with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. He quit the band after this show. June 28, 1969. I was fortunate enough to see the show close up and had my camera."
