- Experience Hendrix Tour @ The Pikes Peak Center ; Wednesday, Oct. 16, 7:30 p.m., 190 S. Cascade Ave., $49.95-$89.95, all-ages, 520-7469, pikespeakcenter.com
Just one week after the Pikes Peak Center’s Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly Hologram Tour comes another musical homage, this time to classic rock legend Jimi Hendrix. While there are no three-dimensional avatars on this one, the concert more than compensates with 16 musicians, mostly of the ax-wielding variety, who’ve enjoyed success in their own right.
Billy Cox, the sole surviving member of Hendrix’s band, will hold down bass duties, while singers like King’s X frontman Doug Pinnick and legendary folk-bluesman Taj Mahal can be counted on to do Hendrix’s vocals justice. Guitar pyrotechnics will be provided by the likes of Joe Satriani, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Johnson and others.
The annual tour, which has been going on for more than a decade now, will feature classics like “Hey Joe,” “Manic Depression,” “Angel,” “Fire,” “All Along the Watchtower,” “The Wind Cries Mary” and, of course, “Are You Experienced?” As for who gets to play guitar with their teeth and behind their head, there’s only one sure way to find out.
