Now those final songs released after Hendrix’s death, as well as many of the tunes Hendrix released during his lifetime, make up the repertoire of the Experience Hendrix concerts, a tour that has grown from a five-day outing in 2004 to one that now visits about 20 cities most years in the spring and fall.
This spring tour will feature guitarists Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Doyle Bramhall II, Dweezil Zappa, Cesar Rosas, David Hidalgo, Eric Gales, Mato Nanji (of Indigenous) and Malina Moye, with Cox and former Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton forming the rhythm section.
Past shows, which run more than two hours, have drawn rave reviews, and Cox feels the performances embody the “true spirit of Jimi Hendrix.”
“People just love it because they can feel us, the spirit onstage,” Cox said. “I tell anyone, if you like Jimi Hendrix’s music and came up with it, you’ve got to see the Experience Hendrix tour, because it will set you back on your heels.”
