Leon Hendrix Feat. Are You Experienced?
Live at Dublin’s Vicar St
Sat 9th June
“The true story of Jimi Hendrix”
By his brother Leon Hendrix
Leon Hendrix is the younger brother of Jimi Hendrix, who was arguably one of the greatest rock guitarist ever who, even with a short career, managed to shape the future of rock guitar playing more than anyone.
Throughout Jimi’s career, Leon was Jimi’s companion. He travelled with Jimi on the road and witnessed first-hand all the legendary gigs including his incendiary set at the infamous Woodstock Festival.
Leon is now embarking on his first tour of Europe which includes a date at Dublin’s Vicar St. The show will combine Leon performing as part of “Are You Experienced?, an astounding band who will play all Jimi’s hits as well as recalling his first-hand experiences in the studio, on the road and from the private life of a true rock legend.
Leon’s career has itself been a chequered one! He was placed in an orphanage when his mother died and his father proved unable to cope. On leaving it he formed a band with his older brother. After Jimi’s untimely death, he experienced drug & alcohol addiction and a spell in prison before becoming a successful musician in his own right.
But it is his recollections of life with his remarkable older brother that will hold the audience spellbound. Not only will Leon talk openly about his life with Jimi, the audience will be given the chance to pose questions directly to Leon in a Q & A session.
Add to the above the opportunity for a ‘meet & greet’ with Leon after the show and you have all the ingredients to make an already extraordinary evening even more spectacular for any lover of great rock music.
