Experience Hendrix tour to stop at the Orpheum

, Staff

The fourth edition of the Experience Hendrix Tour, the biennial concert tour featuring an all-star line up of music greats paying homage to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix, will stop in Boston later this fall. The show will take place at the Orpheum Theatre on Sunday, November 7. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $48.45 to $89.50, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.

Performing at the Boston show will be Billy Cox of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band Of Gypsys, Steve Vai, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Living Colour, Chris Layton of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Ernie Isley, Susan Tedeschi, Mato Nanji of Indigenous and The Slide Brothers.

Cox, who first befriended Hendrix when the two were in the 101st Airborne division of the US Army, performed with Hendrix at such landmark festivals as Woodstock and the Isle of Wight.”It’s a thrill for me to play Jimi’s music for audiences now as it was in the 1960s,” Cox said in a press release. “The Experience Hendrix tours have shown how timeless this music really is.”

Shepherd, a veteran of several Experience Hendrix tours added, “Jimi Hendrix’s music has really inspired to push the limits of my own music. He didn’t observe any boundaries musically. He was an amazing player and a tremendous showman so I incorporated some of his showmanship in what I do.”

Various combination of the artists will be performing Jimi’s signature songs including “Purple Haze”, “Voodoo Child”, “The Wind Cries Mary”, “Little Wing” and “Red House.” As has been the case with previous Experience Hendrix tour incarnations, unannounced special guests are expected to sit in at many of the dates.

The Experience Hendrix Tour will also stop at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut on Thursday, November 4.
