Joe Satriani, Dave Mustaine and More Announced for 2019 Experience Hendrix Tour

The 2019 edition of the Experience Hendrix tour has been announced, and guitarists featured include Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, making his tour debut, as well as Joe Satriani, Taj Mahal, Ernie Isley and Dweezil Zappa. Additionally, former Hendrix bassist Billy Cox, Jonny Lang, and Eric Johnson will be on board for the outing.

Commented Satriani: "The Experience Hendrix Tours are always so much fun. 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 [King’s X bassist and vocalist] dUg Pinnick and Kenny Aronoff!”   

Said Mustaine: “Jimi Hendrix. The name that comes to my mind as one the ‘Premiere American Guitarists of All Time.’ An Innovator, and legendary musician, I am beyond honored to do my part in this tribute to the immortal Jimi Hendrix, and want to thank [EH Tour producer] John McDermott for inviting me to play along such mind-blowing guitarists as Joe Satriani, and a personal favorite of mine, Eric Johnson. See you there!”

"The tour is more than a series of concerts," said Janie Hendrix, CEO of  Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. “It's a celebration of a man whose amazing gift changed the face of music and informed an entire culture. His influences were varied and diverse. And this year we’re shining a light on that diversity with artists who represent it across cultures and who also share a love for Jimi and his music. It’s exciting to be able to honor Jimi’s enduring legacy in this way.”
