12.16.11 - Experience Hendrix Tour Returns!
The 2012 edition of the critically acclaimed Experience Hendrix Concert Tour will launch with a three week run of dates starting March 6th, 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 Buddy Guy, Dweezil Zappa, Billy Cox, Robby Krieger (The Doors), Robert Randolph, Jonny Lang, Mato Nanji (Indigenous), 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) and The Slide Brothers, as well as other special guests to be announced. The announcement coincides with the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine 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.
In terms of format, the tour offers multiple opportunities for performers and audiences to witness unique collaborations among the participating artists such as: Dweezil Zappa with Billy Cox, Buddy Guy with Robert Randolph, Jonny Lang with Brad Whitford, and will highlight these artists and the others performing their favorite Hendrix signature songs including: "Little Wing", "Fire", "Purple Haze", and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)". 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. Past special guests have included: Paul Rodgers, Joe Satriani, Hubert Sumlin, Steve Vai, Carlos Santana and others. The tour's presence has been made known on national tv with Robert Randolph performing classic Hendrix on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, Jonny Lang on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show, Kenny Wayne Shepherd playing Jimi Hendrix's actual Woodstock guitar on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and Jonny Lang, Mato Nanji and Brad Whitford performing "All Along The Watchtower" on The George Lopez Show.
Janie Hendrix, President/CEO of Experience Hendrix, LLC noted, "Everyday 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."

09.08.11 - Letter from Mato
Please allow me to express my heartfelt thanks to our fans, club owners and promoters for the support and understanding you have demonstrated during our most recent tour. It was a difficult decision between canceling the tour or having our bassist, Derek, handle the lead vocal work, but thanks all of you and all the venues, we did complete the tour and had a great time doing it.
Three weeks prior to the launch of the tour, I had some routine oral surgery done. It seemed like no big deal, but after a week, the pain and swelling was still with me. I went to the doctor, who informed me my jaw had been broken during the oral surgery. My only option was having my jaw wired shut for six weeks.
I realize some fans were disappointed to find I was not singing on this run, and I completely understand. The good news, I'm back full force and looking forward to seeing everyone at a show soon.
Again, thanks for the continued support, prayers, and simple acts of kindness.
