Pat Metheny: Dream Box/MoonDial Tour

20 x Grammy Award Winning Guitarist & Composer Pat Metheny is launching a solo tour to coincide with the release of his new album MoonDial, released on BMG July 26th; a follow up to the 2023 Grammy Nominated solo album Dream Box. The tour, a first of its kind for Metheny, will feature personal and fan favourites from his nearly 50 year career

‘“[Last fall’s tour ] represented not just the sound and vibe of the DreamBox release, but really was an opportunity for me to look at all the other ways I have released records and done occasional performances in a solo setting across the years. Each one of those solo recordings, and DreamBox aswell, are unlike the others. The idea for me is to try to keep coming up with different angles and ways of thinking about music while hopefully keeping a fundamental aesthetic at work in all of it. In other words, to continue the research.”

Pat Metheny

Metheny has already produced a catalogue of 50-plus recordings that have scored 39 Grammy nominations and 20 wins in twelve different categories. Measured in terms of influence, this catalogue is in a class by itself. New Chautauqua from 1979 almost single-handedly defined an era of instrumental steel-stringed Americana that spawned legions of imitators. Zero Tolerance For Silence pushed the boundaries of modern music-making once again, and served as a companion piece to the Grammy-winning disc Secret Story. 

The Orchestrion Project - for which Metheny wrote the music and built a series of instruments to be controlled by his guitar, recording the results both in the studio and in a live concert - was so new 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.
