2020 marks 50 years since we lost one of the greats!
“September 18, 1970, at the age of 27, American musician Jimi Hendrix died in London”
Jimi arrived in London in September and died in London in September so we celebrate the life and music of Jimi Hendrix in London annually each September.
We commemorate the life of Jimi Hendrix every year with a definitive tour of Hendrix’s London, and there is an optional evening gig featuring a top tribute band. (Gig is priced separately from our tour!)
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.
We include hotels and houses where Jimi lived, clubs where he played, where he met long time girlfriend Kathy Ethingham, 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 this special afternoon, learn 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.
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!
