The Experience Hendrix tour will head out on the road across the US once again in early 2019.

The multi-artist touring event first began as a tribute show at The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame back in 2000 and has now transformed into a full-blown tour, which celebrates the music of the Greatest Guitarist Of All Time, Jimi Hendrix.

Mainstays Billy Cox, Jonny Lang and Eric Johnson will be joined by a star-studded lineup of artists on the road trip, which will get under way in Florida on March 3.

Dave Mustaine will make his Experience Hendrix debut where he’ll hook up with Joe Satriani, Dweezil Zappa, Dug Pinnick, Chris Clayton, Mato Nanji, Ernie Isley, Kenny Aronoff, Slide Brothers, Henri Brown and Kevin McCormack.

Special guests include the legendary Taj Mahal, David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas.

Mustaine says: “Jimi Hendrix. The name that comes to my mind as one the Premiere American Guitarists Of All Time. 

“An Innovator, and legendary musician, I am beyond honoured to do my part in this tribute to the immortal Jimi Hendrix and want to thank tour producer John McDermott for inviting me to play along such mind-blowing guitarists as Joe Satriani, and a personal favourite of mine, Eric Johnson. See you there!”

The camaraderie between all the musicians on the show is magical. I’m so excited to play some deep Hendrix tracks

Satriani adds: “The camaraderie between all the musicians on the show is magical. I’m so excited to play some deep Hendrix tracks in a power trio setting with Dug Pinnick and Kenny Aronoff!”

A total of 30 shows are planned, each lasting three hours.

CEO of  Experience Hendrix LLC Janie Hendrix explains: “The tour is more than a series of concerts. It's a celebration of a man whose amazing gift changed the face of music and informed an entire culture. 

“His influences were varied and diverse. And this year we’re shining a light on that diversity with artists who represent it across cultures and who also share a love for Jimi and his music. It’s exciting to be able to honour Jimi’s enduring legacy in this way.”
