Posted by Michael Mueller on December 22, 2009 at 12:01 PM
Experience Hendrix has announced the fourth-edition biennial concert tour featuring an all-star line up of music greats paying homage to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix. Featured artists who will be performing music written and inspired by Jimi Hendrix include Joe Satriani, Jonny Lang, Eric Johnson, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Brad Whitford (of Aerosmith), Doyle Bramhall II, Ernie Isley, Living Colour, Double Trouble's Chris Layton, and bassist Billy Cox.
Cox, who played in both the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys and performed with Hendrix at such landmark festivals as Woodstock and the Isle of Wight, said, "It's a thrill for me to play Jimi's music for audiences now as it was in the 1960s. The Experience Hendrix tours have shown how timeless this music really is."
Says guitarist Joe Satriani: "I finally get to pay tribute to my hero the right way, on stage with an amazing, once in a lifetime, line up of musicians!"
Sacred Steel featuring Robert Randolph, Susan Tedeschi, and David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos are also performing on selected Experience Tour dates.
