 Jimi Hendrix in London, 1966 (Jas Obrecht Music Archive). Although the marker indicates that the November 25, 1966 concert is the initial performance of the Jimi Hendrix experience, this article indicates that there were actually two prior performances by the Experience - October 13, 1966 at The Novelty in Evreux, France (debut performance), and October 25, 1966 at the Scotch of Saint James in London (English debut), as well as three performances in Munich in November.
