AEROSMITH Guitarist To Take Part In ‘Experience Hendrix Tour’

The 2012 edition of the critically acclaimed Experience Hendrix concert tour will launch with a three-week run of dates starting March 6 featuring an all-star lineup of musical greats paying homage to the abiding genius of Jimi Hendrix. Presented by Fender Musical Instruments, this year’s tour will include performances by the following musicians:

* Buddy Guy
* Dweezil Zappa
* Billy Cox
* Robby Kreiger (THE DOORS)
* Robert Randolph
* Jonny Lang
* Kenny Wayne Shepherd
* David Hidalgo Cesar Rosas (LOS LOBOS)
* Keb’ Mo
* Eric Johnson
* Brad Whitford (AEROSMITH)
* LIVING COLOUR
* Chris Layton (STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN DOUBLE TROUBLE)
* THE SLIDE BROTHERS

The announcement coincides with latest issue of Rolling Stone wherein Jimi Hendrix was, predictably, designated “The Greatest Guitarist of All Time.” The tour will alight in twenty markets including Baltimore, Nashville, Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Houston, Austin, Denver and more.

As has been the case with previous Experience Hendrix outings, special guests are expected to sit in at many of the dates, making the concerts all that much more memorable for both new and veteran Hendrix fans.

Janie Hendrix, President/CEO of Experience Hendrix L.L.C., noted, “Every day we see how Jimi‘s musical legacy continues to transcend generational and cultural boundaries. It’s always been our continuing mission to do all we can to celebrate what he’s given us and to keep his music in the forefront and the Experience Hendrix tour does that most directly. As a child Jimi promised to take care of me and I promised to take care of him. He wanted people to experience the ‘Electric Church’ and wake ‘the sleeping people.’ The Experience Hendrix Tour does just that with brilliant musicians who love Jimi and will electrify the stage with his music and sound,”

Notes Experience Hendrix Tour producer John McDermott, “The lineup for this tour reflects the breadth of Jimi‘s ongoing influence that reaches down through the generations. The guests that have been attracted to participate are enthusiastic about the proposition of performing with their counterparts. That mindset underscores the fact that the Experience Hendrix tour is all about musical camaraderie and the recognition that Jimi Hendrix, undeniably, casts the longest shadow in the realm of great music and great musicians.”
