I love Pat Metheny in concert. When the entire band builds to a crescendo over and over and in varying ways it is sublime. I have seen him a 3 times and always worthwhile.

I got free tickets to Pat Metheny once. Given to me by a friend who didn't know who he was. She won them. Looked like toward the back seats but I didn't care. I invited a friend and upon arrival the usher sat us in some seats that were added for this concert. These special seats were front row seat dead center. I watched the show about 15 feet from Pat Metheny. Needless to say it was the best show I've ever seen. Just an amazing guitarist with an equally amazing band.
Well here's an update/review of the Orchestrion show. Wow! That's it. Go and see this show. UNC gig was second outing stateside and I just did some searching and other gigs are selling out as most are campus theater/performing arts centers and tend to be more intimate with average 1200 seats. I was front center in orchestra area...perfect...not a neck breaker like many would suspect. Any closer I would have been onstage. Pat spoke to audience explaining his 'weirdness' as he referred to it and did some improv tunes...amazing. He told audience that folks from Moog were in-house and the engineers were collaborating with the project...interesting and he played well over 2 1/2 hrs. Best hundred dollar outing I have had...ever. Now I need to go buy the album:)
