The first ever Jimi Hendrix store is opening in London in April. The “pop-up store” is temporary, and will mark the release of the “new” Hendrix album People, Hell and Angels.
The store will be open from April 1-12 at 8 Ganton Street, London, just off the world-famous Carnaby Street. Customers will be able to buy Jimi CDs, DVDs and merchandise. Guitarists will be able to test gear and play along with classic Jimi music. There is also a photography exhibition from Gered Mankowitz, who captured some of the most iconic Jimi images. Mankowitz will also do a signing-session (April 6) for new prints of his famous work.
Janie L. Hendrix, Jimi Hendrix’s sister and President/CEO of Experience Hendrix, will also appear at the store (April 1), signing copies of the new book Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Lyric Book. Follow #HendrixCarnaby on Twitter to keep up to date.
