In attempts to recreate the lighting the night of Jimi's concert, and in order to preserve the setting of the Fillmore East, a small selection of fixtures were used; conventional and LEDs.
In order to keep the experience authentic during the concert, challenges arose to keep the lighting at a minimum and to provide the wash of stage lighting and projections that would have been used during the era.
