Meeting of the Spirits: John McLaughlin Discusses His Farewell U.S. Tour

“Last year, I decided to do a ‘farewell’ tour of the States and thought, what to do? The music of the Mahavishnu Orchestra has always been so special to me, and, right from the very start of Mahavishnu back in 1971, the American audiences accepted and embraced this music so enthusiastically. To me, there is no better way to say thank you to America than to celebrate the music of Mahavishnu on this tour.”

British guitar virtuoso John McLaughlin is discussing his Meeting of the Spirits Tour, which began November 1 in Buffalo, New York, and wraps up December 9 in Los Angeles, California.
