For Immediate ReleaseTue, May 14, 2019
What began as a single show tribute at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 has blossomed into a full-fledged concert experience that has thrilled countless fans across the U.S. The Experience Hendrix Tour, the acclaimed multi-artist celebration of Jimi Hendrix’s musical genius is returning to the Silver Legacy Resort Casino at THE ROW on Saturday, Oct. 5.
The tour, which the Chicago Tribune called “a testament to the legacy of the iconic guitarist,” presents a host of great artists collaborating and interpreting Hendrix’s legendary repertoire as part of a dynamic, non-stop three-hour concert experience.
The Experience Hendrix Tour offers fans a rare opportunity to see critically-lauded musicians performing timeless Jimi Hendrix classics such as “Purple Haze,” “Foxey Lady,” “Voodoo Child” and “Little Wing” in a unique setting. This latest edition of the tour will feature guitar wizard Joe Satriani as well as Dweezil Zappa, Jonny Lang, Ana Popovic, Eric Johnson, dUg Pinnick (from King’s X), Chris Layton (from Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble), Mato Nanji (from Indigenous), Kenny Aronoff, Henri Brown and Kevin McCormick. Mainstays Billy Cox, Calvin Cooke and Chuck Campbell from The Slide Brothers and Doyle Bramhall II will also be on board. Artist line-up is subject to change without notice.
Fifteen-time Grammy Award nominee Joe Satriani, who recently came off the eastern leg of the Experience Hendrix Tour, will be back for the next leg of the tour. Notable for being the biggest-selling instrumental rock guitarist of all time, Satriani came to the forefront with the release of his 1987 solo album Surfing with the Alien. He has worked with Mick Jagger, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Blue Oyster Cult and the fabled Spinal Tap and is a member of rock super group Chickenfoot. In keeping with the spirit of the Experience Hendrix Tour, Satriani has formed an all-star trio especially for the occasion, calling upon bassist and vocalist dUg Pinnick from King’s X, and prolific sideman Kenny Aronoff on drums to serve as his rhythm section.
"The Experience Hendrix Tours are always so much fun,” Satriani told Billboard. “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!”
Billy Cox, bassist for both Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, has been the backbone of the tour since its inception, providing a spiritual connection between the past and present. Rounding out the lineup are drummer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chris Layton of Steve Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, as well as Mato Nanji of Indigenous, Henri Brown and bassist Kevin McCormick.
Critics have been gushing about the Experience Hendrix Tour since its inception. “Hendrix’s classic songs came one after the next and the electric licks were delivered by a who’s who of modern guitar greats,” noted Loudwire, which went on to call it “the guitar tour of the year.”
“At the very end of the night, all the participants came back out for a final bow,” Consequence of Sound observed this past March. “And one thing you couldn’t help but realize by this point – the music of Jimi Hendrix will seemingly live on forever, and continue to inspire future generations.”
The 2019 Experience Hendrix Tour is sponsored by Fender Musical Instruments, the renowned manufacturer of Jimi’s iconic Stratocaster guitars, along with Dunlop, Hal Leonard, and Axe Heaven.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 17 starting at $79.95 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 775-325-7401.
