The eighth edition of the Experience Hendrix Tour, a special event presented by Realta Entertainment’s “BandFuse: Rock Legends” video game, is set to launch March 2014.
The month-long tour is an ongoing tribute to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix and will feature a diverse group of musicians paying homage to the rocker including Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Bootsy Collins, Mato Nanji and Ana Popovic.
The tour officially begins in Dallas, Texas, at the Verizon Theater on March 11 then heads across the Midwest and mid-Atlantic regions with stops in St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Washington and Detroit.
Realta’s video game “BandFuse: Rock Legends” connects real guitars, basses and microphones to game consoles, giving users an authentic playing experience across a library of hit songs from rock to metal and punk to funk.
“Playable kiosks of the game will be at each of the shows, giving attendees a pick-up-and-play, real rock experience with the only game that provides the tools to help become the next guitar legend,” says Jeff Marshall, director of artist relations, Realta Entertainment.
“BandFuse: Rock Legends” is available now in North America for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 systems with a European release coming soon.
