Experience Hendrix Rocks Hard Rock Live

Fri., Sept. 19

It was the 1960s all over again when the Experience Hendrix 2014 tour hit the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood on Friday, September 19th.

People in tie-dyed Jimi Hendrix shirts were asking for extra tickets from the parking garages all the way to the box office!

The lucky fans who made it inside got treated to stellar renditions of Hendrix hits and classic compositions.   Guitar legends like Buddy Guy, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang and Zakk Wylde showed off their impressive chops while also paying tribute to the trailblazing guitarist who inspired them all!

"That Metal Show" host Eddie Trunk was on hand to introduce Janice Hendrix, who spoke about the influence her brother continues to have on popular music.

Bassist Billy Cox, who played with Jimi Hendrix and has played every Experience Hendrix tour since the beginning, kicked off the concert with classics "Dolly Dagger" and "Power of Love".

A rotating cast of musicians and singers filled the stage all night, with Rich Robinson bringing "A Message To Love", Eric Gales storming through "Crosstown Traffic" and metal madman Zakk Wylde tearing up "Manic Depression"!

It was an amazing night filled with timeless music and truly inspired guitar playing. The Experience Hendrix tour is not a concert to be missed!
