Melody Maker headlines the article, “Hendrix Tour Of Germany Postponed” as a result of the success the group continues to have back in America. The article goes on to state that ‘Jimi has had a massive offer to appear on further dates in September during his new American tour which starts in Dallas on July 31. Included in the US itinerary is a concert at Hollywood’s famed Bowl. Jimi is able to command $10,000 a day (over £3,000) and 60 per cent of the gate money on his American shows, which often bring him in as much as £10,000 for each date. He has only just completed an America tour, and the date at Woburn Abbey on Saturday evening is likely to be his only British appearance this year.’
