Jamie Hendrix of Experience Hendrix said "Every day 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."
