Bona fide guitar hero and perennial poll-winner Al Di Meola and his band are headed into The Egg’s Hart Theatre in Albany on his Notorious-Opus Electric Tour on Friday, June 29.

Over the course of the career that’s spanned four decades, Di Meola has been internationally recognized as virtuoso of the highest order, a prolific composer and a prodigious six-string talent. He’s recorded more than 20 albums as a bandleader 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 (with bassist Clarke and violinist Jean-Luc Ponty).

Opening the show for Di Meloa will be progressive rock-fusion pioneers Brand X.

Tickets for the concert are currently on sale, priced at $39.50, $59.50 & $79.50. VIP tickets are $75, which also includes access to Al Di Meola’s soundcheck. Fans will get to see some of the sound check, get a photo and chat with Al Di Meola, and an item may be autographed.
