A 2014 installment of the star-studded Experience Hendrix Tour visited a variety of U.S. cities in March and April, and now the tribute trek will return to the road for a series of fall performances.  The new dates begin with a September 19 show in Clearwater, Florida, and the tour will works its way west, finishing up with an October 18 concert in Oakland, California.

The lineup for the trek features many of the same musicians that appeared on the early 2014 outing, including former Jimi Hendrix bassist Billy Cox ; drummer Chris Layton of Double Trouble , the late Stevie Ray Vaughan 's backing group; blues great Buddy Guy ; The Black Crowes ' Rich Robinson ; ex- Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde ; Kenny Wayne Shepherd ; Jonny Lang , and many others.  Additional guest performers will be announced at a later date.

For more than a decade, the Experience Hendrix Tour and related events have brought together various respected guitarists and other musicians to pay homage to the music of the late Hendrix.

Hendrix's sister, Janie , president and CEO of the Experience Hendrix company says the trek "is testimony to the fact that Jimi continues to connect musicians and audiences, crossing generational and cultural boundaries."  She adds, "It's our continuing mission to do all we can to celebrate what he's given us and to keep his music in the forefront.  The wonderful musicians on this tour express their love for him in ways that are a direct reflection of the gift he's given us."
