Pat Metheny – Dream Box Tour

In Fall 2023 - 20x Grammy Award Winning Guitarist & Composer Pat Metheny
is launching a solo tour which will coincide with a new album release on BMG
Modern Recordings, Dream Box. The tour, a first of its kind for Metheny, will
feature personal and fan favorites from his nearly 50 year career.

Metheny says “A few years back, I did a short run of concerts that were not
exclusively me and a single guitar, but pretty close. I loved it. Of course, I
always have to take it somewhere else too, which by the end of those
performances, I did manage to do (no spoilers here!), but what I have planned
for the tour following the release of my new recording Dream Box, is
something different for me, focused on the various ways of playing solo I have
explored across all these decades in an evening that I think will be very
special".

Think about these recordings; New Chautauqua - a 1979 recording that almost
single-handedly defined an era of instrumental steel-stringed Americana; Zero
Tolerance For Silence - a shot across the bow of modern music making, the
companion piece to parallel the Grammy-winning disc Secret Story; The
Orchestrion Project, a project so outrageous in conception and execution that
even a decade-plus later, it stands apart from any previous ideas of what a
solo performer might achieve alone onstage.

And then consider and contrast those projects to the two back-to-back
Grammy-winning solo Baritone guitar recordings, One Quiet Night and What's
It All About. Those recordings are not only among the most gorgeous pure solo
guitar recordings, but they also introduced an entirely new tuning system that
allowed Metheny to create an almost orchestral range from bass to soprano
within the realm of a simple steel 6-string guitar.
