Rich Robinson and Robby Krieger Among Experience Hendrix Adds

With a lineup that already included Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde, Bootsy Collins, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Doyle Bramhall II, Dweezil Zappa, Los Lobos’ Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo, Eric Gales, Ana Popovic, Mato Nanji, Quinn Sullivan and others, the this year's Experience Hendrix Tour was already shaping up to be the best one yet. Now that tour organizers have announced the addition of Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson, The Doors axeman Robby Krieger, the great Taj Mahal and Aerosmith six-stringer Brad Whitford to select dates, the tour's stops have become must-see events.

The 2014 installment of the annual tour and tribute to Jimi Hendrix now includes 25 performance dates over a span of just under four weeks as shows have been added in Oklahoma, Texas, Indiana, Illinois and Minnesota. “I’m really looking forward to getting out and playing some of my favorite Hendrix songs with these great musicians,” Rich Robinson said in a statement announcing his participation. Each performance will find the participating musicians covering some of Hendrix's most beloved songs mainly backed by bassist Billy Cox and drummer Chris Layton.
