Pretty much the closest you'll get to Hendrix these days

It's been 46 years since the death of legendary axeman Jimi Hendrix, but his legend lives on through people like Randy Hansen. The Seattle guitarist has been officially recognised by the Hendrix's family as the rightful person to honour Hendrix, so this May he's heading down under on the Hendrix Revolution tour, bringing the musician's legacy to life.

The guitar virtuoso has earned praise from Eddie Van Halen and Eddie Vedder, and performed with the likes of Steve Ray Vaughan, Steve Miller and Sammy Hagar. Known to tackle Hendrix's many tricks like playing a guitar behind his back or with his teeth, this will be the Hendrix Revolution's first stint in Australia.

The tour first heads to Sydney's Enmore Theatre on 18 May, before it goes to Melbourne's The Palais on 21 May, Perth's Concert Hall on 24 May, Adelaide's Thebarton Theatre on 25 May and Brisbane's Concert Hall on 31 May.
