Tour 6 – Experiencing Hendrix in London
“In 2014 I joined your London Hendrix tour for the first time but I’ve been coming to the evening ‘Are You Experienced’ gig for a few years. I’m pleased I took the tour this year as it put Jimi’s life and music into context and made the evening show even more powerful. This is always one of the best nights of my year and I look forward to joining you in 2015. Also, looking forward to the new museum opening.”
Afternoon Tour and Evening Show
We commemorate the death of Jimi every year with a definitive tour of Hendrix’s London, and an evening gig featuring top tribute band, ‘Are You Experienced’ at the famed Troubadour Club or Scotch of St James club. This year we’re part of the growing ‘Hendrix in London’ festival week which includes gigs around the city, Hendrix films shown in historic locations, talks on the great man, art and photo exhibitions at top London galleries, special ‘open-house’ entries and tours of special locations, and many other Hendrix-related events.

Our tour visits a range of sites covering Jimi’s four-year history in London; from Zoot Money’s flat, his first port of call on landing in September 24th 1966, to the apartment where he died on September 18th 1970.
Handel/Hendrix museum now open!!! http://handelhendrix.org/
We include hotels and houses where Jimi lived, clubs where he played, recording studios he used, locations where lyrics where written, where he burned his first guitar, shop sites where he purchased his amazing clothes and personal instruments, and locations where album, PR and video shoots were taken.
During the afternoon, you’ll learn all about Jimi’s times in London, the formation of the ‘Experience’, the politics, the drugs, the girlfriends, the music; and have it set in the context of the ‘swinging sixties’ of which he was so much apart. We make full use of our DVD and CD playing facilities to watch and listen to historic performances. And with an expert Hendrix guide to accompany you throughout, you can expect a memorable day of historical information and fun! Whether you’re a hard-core Hendrix fan, or want to learn more about his life and times, this is the tour.
