Grammy-Award winning artist Al Di Meola has received international critical acclaim throughout his four-decade career as a virtuoso on both acoustic and electric guitar, earning three gold albums and more than six million in record sales worldwide. His 2021 U.S. Tour features songs from his latest release “Across the Universe,” a tribute to the Beatles that showcases his unique approach and vision of those beloved classics.
More on Al Di Meola:
A bona fide guitar hero and perennial pole-winner, Al Di Meola has been recognized internationally over the past four decades as virtuoso of the highest order. A prolific composer and prodigious six-string talent, Di Meola has amassed over 20 albums as a leader while collaborating on a dozen or so others with the likes of the 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 aficionados who regularly flock to his concerts, the depth of Di Meola’s writing along with the soulfulness and his inherent lyricism of his guitarist expression have won him legions of fans worldwide beyond the guitar aficionado set.
