John McLaughlin Farewell US Tour
John McLaughlin & Jimmy Herring
Meeting of the Spirits: Music of Mahavishnu Orchestra

On this tour, which features the first extended collaboration between two of the world’s foremost improvising artists, guitarist John McLaughlin revisits the legacy of his legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra with his co-headliner, virtuoso guitarist Jimmy Herring.

Over five decades, McLaughlin has become one of improvised music’s most influential guitarists, composers, and bandleaders. Herring has been at the creative forefront of the thriving American rock-jam band movement for 25 years as lead guitarist of Widespread Panic. After separate sets by the two headliners with their own bands, they join forces for an expansive closing jam, revisiting the pioneering music that McLaughlin introduced in the 1970s with his deeply influential, genre-defying Mahavishnu Orchestra. “To play the music of Mahavishnu is not for the faint-hearted,” says McLaughlin. “In fact, among the only people I know who have succeeded in interpreting Mahavishnu music are my two all-time favorite guitarists: Jimmy Herring and Jeff Beck.” This tour marks the 75-year-old McLaughlin’s first extensive US tour in seven years and his last American performances.
