Experience Hendrix Tour


Jimi Hendrix by Elliott Landy
A five city tour, featuring some of the best known and most respected figures in rock and blues has been set to celebrate the legacy and music of Jimi Hendrix next month. The tour launches October 16 at Washington's Constitution Hall. Experience Hendrix, LLC, the Hendrix family-owned company charged entrusted with preserving and protecting the legacy of Jimi Hendrix is the presenter of the tour and lends its name to the endeavor which runs through October 20. Other tour stops include New York; Hampton Beach, NH; Atlantic City and Waterbury, CT.

Featuring artists who will be performing music written by and associated with Jimi Hendrix include blues giant Buddy Guy, pedal steel innovator Robert Randolph, contemporary guitar greats Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Special guests include Robby Krieger, guitarist of The Doors, Rolling Stones veteran guitarist Mick Taylor and Hubert Sumlin, the Mississippi-born guitarist who worked with both Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters. Most remarkably, Mitch Mitchell (drums) and Billy Cox (bass), the same Jimi Hendrix Experience rhythm section that played behind Hendrix at Woodstock will be on hand for the Experience Hendrix tour dates as will Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon, a/k/a Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's highly regarded rhythm section. Native American band Indigenous, Eric Gales, the Memphis guitarist who is heard on the Power of Soul Jimi Hendrix tribute album and Kenny Olson of Kid Rock's band are also part of the Experience Hendrix Tour. Guitar World's renowned music transcriber and Hendrix guitar instructor Andy Aledort will once again join the tour. Various combinations of these artists in performance are sure to make the concerts very special events for both new and veteran Hendrix fans.

The new Experience Hendrix tour is an exciting prospect for Billy Cox whose history with Jimi Hendrix dates back to their days in the Army together. He commented, "It's a thrill for me to play Jimi's music for audiences now as it was in the early 1960s. The Experience Hendrix tour just show you how timeless this music really is."

This show needs to go national. What a shame to only do five cities. I'd pay the big bucks to see this.

this is pretty cool. like Zappa plays Zappa, it's a tribute band that doesn't just not suck, they actually kick ass. Buddy Guy is the Man

sounds like fun. i caught something like this a about 5 years (or so) back at the san diego street scene. it was a blast. artists such as the guitar duo from los lobos, slash, vernon reid,and jimmy vaughn to name a few. great to see these musicians honor one of the most eclectic guitarists to ever strum a guitar.

In his biography it is written that "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" is run by his adopted stpe sister that he barely knew and who fought to prevent his brother (who he loved) and his children from getting a penny or having any involvement in the enterprise. That's just a snippet of the stuff "The Experience" has done, suffice to say they don't give a damn about his "legacy" and have shown a serious lack of respect regarding his wishes. I wouldn't give tham a dime.

Just picked up a pair of orchestra tix for the DC show...should be a blast. I have no problem with what the Hendrix family has done with Jimi's work. They've put out a number of CD and DVD releases of Hendrix show's as well as winning the ownership of much of his music away from its producers, who were adding and subtracting tracks to some of his 'unfinished' pieces.

This sounds amazing. Robert Randolph is one of the greatest guitarist alive right now. I know he plays the steel guitar, but no one is close to where he is. It is too bad shows like these don't travel more places and spread the musical word. Jimi would be proud.

I caught the first show in DC. I'd never seen Eric Gales and Kenny Wayne Shepard before and they left a most distinct impression on me that will last a lifetime.
