Queensryche To Perform Special Jimi Hendrix Sets On Experience Hendrix 2008 Tribute Tour

Queensryche will help celebrate the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix by performing on two select dates of this year's Experience Hendrix 2008 Tribute Tour to take place on Wednesday, November 5th at the INB Performing Arts Center in Spokane, Washington and Thursday, November 6th at The Paramount Theatre in the band's hometown of Seattle, Washington which, of course, was also the hometown of Jimi Hendrix.

Both of these particular performances -- part of a nationwide 19 city tour that began on October 15th in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire -- will feature such other artists as Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Doyle Bramhall II, Eric Gales, Buddy Guy, Robby Krieger, Jonny Lang, Chris Layton, Mato Nanji and Hubert Sumlin among others.

Geoff Tate is certainly excited to take part in it all commenting, "Jimi Hendrix is not only a Seattle legend but a world legend. I feel it's such a privilege to be included on this tour and to have a chance to play his music with such a talented group of musicians."

The five members of Queensryche - Geoff, Scott Rockenfield, Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson and Mike Stone -- will be returning to the studio soon to record their forthcoming CD due out early next year. Also on the horizon for release early next year is Geoff Tate's red wine signature blend called Insania, which has already garnered the attention of Wine Spectator magazine.
