The much awaited Jimi Hendrix Experience Tour 2014 is all set to kick of this september.
The next lap of the Experience Hendrix Tour has been announced, it will kick off on September 19th in Hollywood, FL at the Seminole Hard Rock and will end on 18th October in Oakland, CA at the Fox Theater.
Black Label Society and former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde and Buddy Guy will be at the helm of the all-star musicians lineup.
The idea of having an all-star tribute concert which would be held in honor of the guitar legend, was originally conceived in the summer of 1995. The first concert was fully supported by the Hendrix family as it founded a long standing chain of tribute concerts held in Jimi Hendrix’s memory.
The characteristic music of Jimi Hendrix fused with the novelty of new and practicing musicians is what makes the Experience Hendrix Tour such a rare musical delight for fans across the globe.
This years North American Trek will have Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Doyle Bramhall II, Eric Gales, Ana Popovic, Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson, Mato Nanji, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble’s Chris Layton.
Billy Cox who has been a part of the tribute tour since it began in 2000 will be joining the guitarists at the Experience Hendrix Tour.
“Obviously, I’m a fan of everybody that’s on [the Experience Hendrix Tour] because they can all throw down like it’s nobody’s business. I wanted to honor his memory playing his songs for this tour.”, said Jonny Lang in the announcement.
“The thing we can all do is just be ourselves and let the natural interpretation of his songs take over.”, said Zakk Wylde.
The Experience Hendrix Tour has been and will always be a must visit for fans on a musical pilgrimage.
