Billboard.com reports: Music by Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Janis Joplin and Deep Purple, among others, will be performed live by the Mystic Orchestra as part of "Flashback -- the Classic Rock Experience." The nearly 50-date U.S. arena tour launches Wednesday (Aug. 27) at the Mobile Civic Center in Mobile, AL.
Inspired partly by Paul O'Neill's Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), which features a full rock band, a string section, multiple vocalists and a laser/light show, "Flashback" boasts 14 musicians and singers, along with an 11-piece string and horn section. The concert's approximately 30-song set features such classics as Hendrix's "Purple Haze," Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," Pink Floyd's "Money," and the Doors' "Light My Fire."
The first leg of "Flashback" will visit 6,000- to 25,000-seat U.S. arenas through the beginning of November. Tickets cost between $17-$55.
The second leg of "Flashback" will tentatively begin in mid-February 2009, and run through early spring, hitting mostly the central part of the country and the West Coast.
