The younger brother of one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time is heading to Weston-super-Mare, and you could win tickets to see him play.

The True Story Of Jimi Hendrix, performed by his younger brother Leon, will take place at the Playhouse Theatre, in High Street, on June 13 at 7.30pm.

During Jimi’s hugely successful, yet short, career he managed to shape the future of rock guitar performing.

Throughout Jimi’s time, Leon was Jimi’s companion and for the first time in the UK, he is to embark upon a theatre tour.

Leon will perform with an astounding band who will play all Jimi’s hits and more, as well as recalling his first-hand experiences of recording and touring with Jimi, while offering a glimpse into the private life of a true rock legend.

Leon’s career has itself been a chequered one, after being placed in an orphanage when his mother died and his father proved unable to cope, he formed a band with his older sibling.

Following the untimely demise of Jimi, he experienced a difficult period including drug and alcohol addiction and a spell in prison before becoming a successful musician in his own right.

Not only will Leon talk openly about his life with Jimi, but in addition the audience will be given the chance to pose queries directly to Leon in a question and answer session.

Leon Hendrix will perform at the Playhouse Theatre on June 13 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £25.50, can be purchased online at or by calling 01934 645544.
