Al Di Meola: An Intimate Acoustic Evening at Colonial Theatre
Point Entertainment presents Al Di Meola: An Intimate Acoustic Evening featuring compositions from the new album release “Opus,” Piazzolla, Lennon & McCartney & Di Meola
With a celebrated career that has spanned four decades and earned him critical accolades, three gold albums and more than six million in record sales worldwide, Al Di Meola is a bona fide guitar hero. He’s collaborated with the likes of fusion supergroup Return to Forever (with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White), the celebrated acoustic Guitar Trio featuring fellow virtuosos John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia, and the Rite of Strings trio with bassist Clarke and violinist Jean-Luc Ponty. And while his dazzling technique on both acoustic and electric guitars has afforded him regal status among the hordes of fretboard fanatics who regularly flock to his concerts, the depth of Di Meola’s writing along with the soulfulness and the inherent lyricism of his guitaristic expression have won him legions of fans worldwide beyond the guitar aficionado set.
