While checking through Canada Customs, one of the bags Hendrix offers to be searched contains what is believed to be an illicit substance. Hendrix is arrested and taken to Police Headquarters in downtown Toronto. He is later released on a $10,000 cash bail and required at a court appearance on May 5. After his release, The Experience book into the Four Seasons Hotel and then head directly to Maple Leaf Gardens where they prepare for an evening performance. Jimi opened his show with greeting, “We want you to forget about today, about yesterday, and about tomorrow. Tonight we’re gonna create a whole new world,” The guitarist then launched into an incendiary rendition of “Fire.” Ritchie Yorke, who reviewed the performance for the May 4 issue of The Globe And Mail, was moved to write, “his guitar became the voice of the Rave New World. It screamed, hissed, and shrieked with the ferocity of a thousand dentist drills plunged into a single tooth.” The evening’s performance also featured a superb version of “Spanish Castle Magic”, complete with touches of both “Third Stone From The Sun” and “Little Miss Lover” interwoven within the song’s extended instrumental break. Jimi also performed a rare, fascinating early live version of “Room Full Of Mirrors”.
