KXCI To Host Tucson's Woodstock 40th Anniversary Party

It's official - KXCI will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock with a great big (but affordable!) concert at the Rialto Theatre on Saturday, August 15th.

This family-friendly event will run from 5 to 11pm and feature about a dozen of Tucson's premier musicians and bands covering the artists that appeared at Woodstock in 1969 - folks like Janis Joplin, Richie Havens, Arlo Guthrie, Santana, Joan Baez, Jimi Hendrix and The Grateful Dead.We'll also have food and fun to add to the festival setting, all while staying in the air-conditioned comfort of the Rialto.

Stay tuned to KXCI for announcements on who exactly is playing, ticket prices and information, and much more.

To put you in the mood, here's a link to YouTube for video from Jimi's performance:
