The amazing guitar artistry of Rodrigo y Gabriela returns to the intimate Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater for the last concert of their Mettavolution Tour Friday, December 6th / 8PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 20th / 10AM.
One of the world’s most in-demand live acts, Rodrigo y Gabriela have spent much of their remarkable 20-year career performing on increasingly larger stages around the globe. Rodrigo y Gabriela have been bringing their incendiary stage performance to fans across the globe in support of their latest album, METTAVOLUTION. The acoustic duo’s first album in five years, METTAVOLUTIONmarks the most ambitious music of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s remarkable two-decade career and was one of NPR‘s top 6 albums of the week upon release. Three years in the making, the LP embraces the duo’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species, all expressed through the medium of two acoustic guitars. METTAVOLUTION gathers six white-hot new Rodrigo y Gabriela compositions – much of which acknowledge the duo’s thrash-metal roots back in Mexico City – as well as an inspired, side-long cover of Pink Floyd’s sprawling “Echoes” – originally found on 1971’s MEDDLE – audaciously reimagined for two acoustic guitars. Rolling Stone hailed the 19-minute epic as a “Song You Need to Know,” noting, “‘Echoes’ is such a signature song, it’s hard to imagine anyone else doing it justice, yet somehow the Mexican acoustic-rock duoRodrigo y Gabriela landed on a brilliant interpretation…Like the original, the song is its own journey, and it’s beautiful.”
