Bona fide guitar hero and perennial poll winner Ali Di Meola, one of the top guitarists of our time, has today announced a three-date east coast tour of Australia.
Di Meola has been recognised internationally over the past four decades as a virtuoso of the highest order.
His most recent album, 2020’s “Across the Universe” showcases his virtuosic arrangements and creative interpretations of 14 Beatles songs with a larger scale full production featuring orchestrations balanced with lavish acoustic arrangements and electric guitar.
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.
While his dazzling technique on both acoustic and electric guitars has afforded Di Meola 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.
