6/7/69: Which Supergroup's Live Debut was Free?

posted by Kenny Young -

Nearly a month before the release of their one and only studio album, British super group, Blind Faith made their live debut in London's Hyde Park on this date (6/7/69). An estimated 112,000 fans showed up to the FREE concert to witness Eric Clapton, and Ginger Baker (Cream), Steve Winwood (Traffic) and Ric Grech (Family).  Despite the short set list and lack of material, the show was highly regarded by fans and critics as a momentous occasion. They would go on a short tour of that Summer, including a handful of shows in the U.S. before calling it quits in August of that year. You can watch performance footage below:
