Experience Hendrix tour, featuring Zakk Wylde, Buddy Guy and a crew of favorites to hit the Fox Theatre in March

Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson and Dweezil Zappa are among the axemen assembling for evenings of guitar brilliance in 2016 for dates on the Experience Hendrix Tour, making a stop at the Fox Theatre in St Louis on March 8.

In its second decade, the “Experience Hendrix Tour” is as much a celebration of Jimi Hendrix as it is an exploration of the guitar with the musicians performing their takes on classic numbers such as “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” and “Purple Haze.”
Heading up the rhythm section will be Billy Cox, who played bass for the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys.
But Cox won’t be the only musician in the room with a direct connection to Hendrix.  Buddy Guy, who served as an inspiration to Hendrix, was also a personal friend of the guitarist who defined electric guitar in the late ’60s-early ’70s and inspired just about every axeman that followed. 
The tour sees its fair share of musicians returning for more action.  Dweezil Zappa is returning for his third Experience Hendrix road trip and Guy climbing onboard the ol’ tour bus for his sixth adventure. Then there’s Kenny Wayne Shepherd who has been on every Experience Hendrix Tour since it began in 2004.
“As far back as I can remember, I’ve been listening to Jimi Hendrix,” Shepherd said.  “He has had an enormous influence on me as both a guitar player and a songwriter.  He was always trying new things and pushing musical boundaries, which enabled and encouraged me to push the boundaries in my music.  The Experience Hendrix Tour is an amazing tribute to the greatest guitar player of all time, featuring some of the greatest musicians in the world today.”
The tour also features guitarist Mato Nanji of Indigenous, vocalists Henri Brown and Noah Hunt, and drummer Chris Layton, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble.  The tour’s special guest list includes Keb’ Mo’, Doyle Bramhall II, Ana Popovic, and The Slide Brothers appearing on select dates.

Fueled By Ramen recording group Twenty One Pilots will be returning to the U.S. this summer for a massive headline tour.  The “EMØTIØNAL RØADSHØW” tour will see the band bringing their explosive live show to arenas and amphitheaters across the country and is set to kick off on May 31st at Cincinnati, OH’s US Bank Arena. The summer‐long trek includes the chart topping duo’s biggest headlining shows in North America to date and will culminate with a special performance at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on August 10th (see attached itinerary).  Tickets for all dates will go on sale Friday, October 30th with additional dates to be announced shortly. For complete details and more information please visit  

Twenty One Pilot’s current “Blurryface Tour” has proven to be a phenomenal success with all dates swiftly selling out.   Highlights  from  the  road  have  included  a  stunning  two  night  stand  at New  York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom,  capacity crowds at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater and Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre as well as a victorious homecoming performance at Columbus, OH’s Schottenstein Center.     Furthermore, 2015 has also seen the duo of Tyler Joseph (vocals/piano) and Josh Dun (drums) performing top billed sets at Las Vegas, NV’s Life Is Beautiful, Austin, TX’s ACL Music Festival and Chicago, IL’s Lollapalooza where Rolling Stone declared the band to be among the “40 Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza,” writing “(Twenty One Pilots) has succeeded as much as any band in recent history when it comes to over‐inclusion. By trying on nearly everything in the pop‐music spectrum (as well as nearly every form of headgear), (Tyler) Joseph and Josh Dun yielded huge, if unlikely, success.”

What’s more, the group recently performed “Tear In My Heart” at the 2015 MTV European Music Awards where they  also  received  a  nomination  for  “Best  Alternative.”    The monumental  performance  can  be  viewed  at‐fcs‐flow/hxxzi0.

Meanwhile, following the massive success of their #2 Alternative radio smash “Tear In My Heart,” Twenty One Pilots’ new single “Stressed Out” is rapidly climbing the Alternative radio chart. The track which is currently #3 at Alternative Radio has earned more than 28 million streams thus far while its companion video – directed by the band’s longtime collaborators at Reel Bear Media (“Fairly Local,” “Lane Boy,” “Car Radio,” “Guns For Hands”) –  has  scored  over  23  million  views  and  counting  at  Twenty  One  Pilots’  official  YouTube  channel,   “BLURRYFACE” – which follows Twenty One Pilots’ 2013 Fueled By Ramen debut, “VESSEL” – made a stunning chart  debut  upon  its  arrival  earlier  this  year,  entering  the  SoundScan/Billboard  200  at  #1 with  total  sales exceeding 147,000 and affirmed the duo as an international breakthrough, reaching the top 5 in Canada as well as the top 20 in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. \

               ST. LOUIS – Oct. 19, 2015 – The golf legend known as “The King” is receiving the ultimate award named for “The Man.”  Arnold Palmer will accept the Stan Musial Lifetime Achievement Award – the pinnacle honor for sportsmanship – at the Musial Awards in St. Louis on Saturday, Dec. 5. 
Hosted annually at the Peabody Opera House in downtown St. Louis, the Musial Awards – presented by Maryville University – honor Stan the Man’s legacy by celebrating the year’s greatest moments of sportsmanship from throughout North America.  The program showcases remarkable examples of character, kindness, selflessness and integrity in sports – virtues Musial embodied. 
The Lifetime Achievement Award is one of two special awards bestowed at the event.  It recognizes an iconic sports figure whose career is defined by class, dignity, generosity and excellence.  Like Musial, Palmer epitomizes those qualities.  One of the most popular and accessible sports figures, Palmer built an army of admirers through his down-to-earth, personable approach on and off the golf course.  His success in the sport – seven major championships including four Masters titles – is matched by his kindness and philanthropic commitment.  Palmer’s generosity has touched many across the nation.
In addition to being legendary ambassadors of their respective sports, Palmer and Musial are linked by their Western Pennsylvania roots – making it all the more fitting for the golfing great to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award named for Stan. 
“I am humbled by the honor and its connection to Stan Musial and sportsmanship,” Palmer said.  “Stan and I were very good friends for many years.  He was one of my boyhood heroes and a man I came to admire even more in later years when our paths crossed fairly often.”
St. Louisan and United States Golf Association President Tom O’Toole Jr. will join the Musial family in presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to Palmer at the Musial Awards.  O’Toole said, “Arnold Palmer is one of the greatest sports icons of all time, not only because of the competitions he won, but also because of the class and character he has exuded throughout his life.  Arnold treats everyone with the utmost courtesy and respect.  Stan was that way too, and it is why they are both so beloved.”
Palmer is the second recipient of the Musial Lifetime Achievement Award for Sportsmanship.  Baseball Hall of Famer Joe Torre accepted the inaugural honor at the Musial Awards in 2014.

The event’s other special award, the Musial Award for Extraordinary Character, will posthumously honor Lauren Hill, the college basketball player whose grace and determination inspired people around the world. 
Diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at age 18, Hill made headlines last November when she fulfilled her goal to play in a college basketball game for Mount Saint Joseph University and score a basket.  A gesture of sportsmanship helped make that happen.   Mount Saint Joseph’s opponent, Hiram College, not only moved the contest up two weeks, the school also gave up its home court advantage so Hill could play in front of family and friends.  As it turned out, 10,000 fans showed up for the game at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati.
Hill fought a courageous battle against her disease and launched a tireless effort to generate awareness and funds for cancer research.  Prior to passing away in April, she raised more than $1.4 million through her LayupForLauren challenge, jersey sales and donations.
Hill’s parents, Lisa and Brent, will attend the Musial Awards to accept the Extraordinary Character award on their daughter’s behalf.  Presented last year to Little League World Series star Mo’ne Davis, the award recognizes an individual or team who demonstrates remarkable poise, perseverance and overall sportsmanship.  Lauren Hill personified all those traits and more. 
“It is so meaningful to the Musial family that this year’s Lifetime Achievement and Extraordinary Character awards are being presented to Arnold Palmer and posthumously to Lauren Hill,” said Jean Musial Edmonds, Stan’s daughter.  “My dad had such great respect for Arnold and would be so thrilled to know he is receiving the award.  We also are honored to celebrate Lauren Hill and her courageous and generous spirit, and we’re grateful that her parents Lisa and Brent will be with us at the Musial Awards.”
In addition to the Lifetime Achievement and Extraordinary Character awards, the Musial Awards will recognize several other individuals connected to the most inspiring stories of sportsmanship in 2015.  The complete list of this year’s award recipients will be announced in early November.

Tickets for the Musial Awards go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct. 20).  Tickets are $50 (orchestra level seating) and $30 (mezzanine level seating), and can be purchased online at, at the Scottrade Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster Ticket Centers, or by phone at 800-745-3000.  Additional service fees may apply.
The Musial Awards also offers all-inclusive tickets and packages that provide prime seating for the awards show plus access to a pre-show dinner, reserved parking and more.  Information can be obtained at or by contacting Emily Thompson at 314-345-5111 and
In addition to the live awards show on Dec. 5, the Musial Awards will air as a primetime one-hour television special on KSDK-TV NewsChannel 5, St. Louis’ NBC affiliate, on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m.  An encore presentation will air on Christmas Day at noon.
The Musial Awards is produced by the St. Louis Sports Commission and the National Sportsmanship Foundation.  This marks the 10th year the event has taken place in St. Louis.  Show time on Dec. 5 is 7:30 p.m. 
The St. Louis Sports Commission is the privately-funded nonprofit organization that grows, strengthens and moves St. Louis forward through sports.  The organization uses the power of sports to enhance the area’s quality of life and generate economic and social benefit for the St. Louis region.
