Along with Cox, the tour will feature performances from Joe Satriani, Dave Mustaine (from Megadeth), Jonny Lang, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Johnson, Doug Pinnick (King’s X), Chris Layton (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble), Mato Nanji (Indigenous), Kenny Aronoff, The Slide Brothers, Henri Brown, Kevin McCormick, plus special guests Taj Mahal, Ernie Isley, David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas (from Los Lobos), Ana Popovic, and other special guests to be announced.
According to the announcement via Twitter and the ExperienceHendrix website, the tour will run for 30 shows from March 3rd, 2019, through to April 6th, 2019.
