Jimi Hendrix: Experience Hendrix Spring tour announced

The 2011 edition of the Experience Hendrix concert tour launches in May with an all-star lineup of musical greats paying homage to the genius of Jimi Hendrix.

This year's tour will include performances by Billy Cox, Steve Vai, Robert Randolph, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas (Los Lobos), Keb' Mo, Eric Johnson, North Mississippi All Stars, Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), Living Colour, Ernie Isley, Chris Layton (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble), Indigenous and many additional special guests to be announced.

Experience Hendrix bassist Billy Cox — who first befriended Jimi in the 101st Airborne Division of U.S. Army, played in both the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band Of Gypsys, and performed with Hendrix at such landmark festivals as Woodstock and the Isle of Wight — is delighted to play a part in the current tour, saying, "It's a thrill for me to play Jimi's music for audiences now, as it was in the 1960s."
