The annual experience Hendrix tour added another big name to its lineup this week.
Concert organizers announced this week that Zakk Wylde has joined this year’s nationwide celebration of Jimi Hendrix. The announcement was made in a news release sent Friday from Experience Hendrix LLC.
Wylde will join artists, such as Joe Satriani (who has previously taken part in the annual tour), blues legend Taj Mahal and Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine for this year’s tour. This is not the first time that Wylde has taken part in the Experience Hendrix tour, having first taken part in the tour in 2014. He has appeared on the tour many times since then.
Wylde talked about joining the tour again in a recent interview.
“Hendrix, you can pick out a mile away,” Wylde said. “His sound, his execution — he was about as unique as it gets. I’m a fan of all the guys on the tour. I’m just excited to get out there and hang around the whole thing. Just watching them play and jammin’ with them.”
This year’s Experience Hendrix tour is scheduled to start on March 3 in Pompano Beach, FL and to run through Apr. 6 in Wallingford, CT. The tour features performances in cities, such as Raleigh, NC; Washington, D.C. and Albany, NY. The tour’s current schedule is noted below.
