Al Di Meola at the Variety Playhouse

Thursday, February 4, 8:00pm
Tickets: $27.50 advance / $30 day of show

Al Di Meola holds the most prestigious guitar awards (of any guitarist in the world) from the highest rated guitar poll in the world, Guitar Player Magazine. He has been known throughout the world for the past two and a half decades as one of the most prominent virtuosos in the contemporary instrumental jazz field. Di Meola's highly celebrated career has spanned a wide range of emotions into a unique style embodying the artists world inspired influences. "If you don't advance creatively," Al Di Meola once told Guitar Player's Jim Ferguson, "then all you have left is playing Vegas." From his stunning arrival on the scene as the fiery virtuoso in Chick Corea's jazz fusion group Return to Forever to his international acclaim as the member of an acoustic guitar trio, and from his solo career to his championing of the musical legacy of tango master Astor Piazzolla, Di Meola has held firm to this credo. Passionate, opinionated, and immensely gifted, he has covered more musical terrain in his 20-year plus career than many artists have in a lifetime.
