Pat Metheny landed on the international jazz scene in 1974, when he quickly became known for his unique rhythmic and harmonic sensibility. When his debut album “Bright Sized Life” came out in 1975, people credited Metheny with steering the jazz genre in a new direction.

Forty-six years later, Metheny is still refining his craft, redefining the guitar and improvisational music, and using his platform to lift up and mentor others — and his new touring group, Side-Eye, ticks all three boxes.

With Side-Eye, Metheny collaborates with and features young artists that have piqued his ears along the way. The Durham iteration of Side-Eye will feature Metheny alongside twenty-five-year-old New York-based keyboardist James Francies and thirty-year-old New Orleans native and drummer Joe Dyson.

The Carolina Theatre requires all guests to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test taken 72 hours before entering the building. Additionally, all guests are required to wear a face mask at all times unless actively eating or drinking, regardless of vaccination status.
