The Experience Hendrix Tour is coming to the Saenger Theatre on March 6.
Blues star and Point Coupee Parish native Buddy Guy, former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, Jonny Lang, Shreveport native Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson and Dweezil Zappa are among the tour’s performers.
Billy Cox, bassist for the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys, is a member of the Experience Hendrix Tour band’s rhythm section.
The first Experience Hendrix Tour featured three West Coast dates, starting in Hendrix’s hometown, Seattle. By 2008, the Experience Hendrix Tour was a coast-to-coast event.
“It is such an honor to be asked back for another run,” said blues-rock guitarist Jonny Lang, who has played every Experience Hendrix tour since 2008. “The music of Jimi Hendrix speaks to each of us in indelible ways. It’s another chance to celebrate his legacy.”
