Forty years after the legendary guitarist’s death, Jimi Hendrix‘s music has been coming back to the forefront. The posthumous album Valleys of Neptune came out earlier this year, Axis: Bold as Love became available to Rock Band players, demos and bootlegs are newly available in mp3 form, and even a mash-up with Jay-Z. Yep, a busy year.
Additionally, his songs were celebrated earlier this year in Experience Hendrix, a tour featuring an all-star lineup of musicians performing his music. In keeping with the Year of the Hendrix, the tour is set for yet another round of performances this fall.
The first performance will be in Pittsburgh on October 26th, and the tour will make a stop in Canada before returning to the States for further dates throughout the rest of the month in the Eastern U.S. It wraps up on November 20th in Indianapolis.
Guests to be featured this round include Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Susan Tedeschi, Robert Randolph, Jonny Lang, Steve Vai, Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas, Eric Johnson, Ernie Isley, Living Colour, Chris Layton (of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble) and The Slide Brothers.
Tickets are already on sale, but considering that we’re talking about Jimi Hendrix’s music here, we’d suggest jumping on them pretty soon if you’re thinking of attending.
