The world lost one of the greatest musicians ever when Jimi Hendrix died in 1970. A legacy that was far too short but made an indelible mark in music and popular culture. Many musicians have followed him. Many have tried to copy his unique style and every guitarist in the world dreams of emulating his talent. There is only one man in this world to truly match this legacy – Randy Hansen.
Randy Hansen, the Seattle-born firebrand, has been stunning audiences worldwide with his explosive homage since the 1970s. He has even unleashed his uncanny virtuosity and dazzling charisma alongside Hendrix’s own former bandmates, Mitch Mitchell, Noel Redding and Buddy Miles. Over 40 years, he has shared stages with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Miller, Paul Rodgers, Sammy Hagar, Herbie Hancock, Robert Cray and Bob Seger. He has been acclaimed by Eddie Van Halen and Eddie Vedder and released more than a dozen albums including Hendrix by Hansen.
Now, for the first time on antipodean stages, experience the thrill of a lifetime as Randy Hansen channels the spirit of Hendrix in a flawless invocation of legendary stage presence and unparalleled musical skill. From the infamous ‘burning guitar’ of the ’67 Monterey Pop Festival to the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ that was Woodstock, witness the raw power and technical mastery that made one of THE indelible figures in rock’n’roll legend.
