Allan Herr/EMP Museum/Authentic Hendrix LLCNew York City’s historic Apollo Theater will host a special Jimi Hendrix tribute concert dubbed “Hendrix in Harlem” that will take place on Saturday, November 26, at 7 p.m. ET. The show will celebrate the late rock guitar legend’s connection to the famous venue, while featuring performances by artists from a wide variety of musical genres.

The concert will feature the veteran ska-punk-funk band Fishbone, who will be joined during the evening by Isley Brothers guitarist Ernie Isley, ex-Labelle singer Nona Hendryx, Liv Warfield of the late Prince‘s group The New Power Generation and acclaimed rapper-poet Saul Williams, among others. The event will include performances of some of Jimi’s lesser-known R&B tunes, classic Jimi Hendrix Experience tunes and material he recorded as a solo artist.

Hendrix’s history with the Apollo dates back to 1964, when he won an edition of the theater’s Amateur night. He also played at the venue early in his career when he was The Isley Brothers’ lead guitarist and when he served as a sideman for such artists as Little Richard, Wilson Pickett and King Curtis.

“Jimi Hendrix found a home on our stage and throughout the Harlem community during his short but phenomenally influential career,” says Kamilah Forbes, executive producer of the Apollo Theater. “His story epitomizes the importance of providing platforms for young, daring artists, which is central to the Apollo’s mission today.”

Tickets for the “Hendrix in Harlem” concert are priced from $35 to $95, and are available at the Apollo Theater’s box office, Ticketmaster outlets and
