Pat Metheny is returning to St. Louis to perform at 8:00 p.m., Sunday, March 9 at The Pageant.
This will be Metheny's first visit here since his Orchestrion tour stopped at the Touhill in 2010.
This time, Metheny will be bringing his Unity Group (aka Unity Band), which features saxophonist Chris Potter, drummer Antonio Sanchez, bassist Ben Williams, and the newest member, multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi.
The project was conceived around Potter, who's the first saxophonist to be featured in a Metheny ensemble in more than 30 years. Having released their debut in 2012, the newly expanded Unity Group (pictured) will be touring in the spring of 2014 in support of the release of their second album, which is expected early next year.
Tickets for the Pat Metheny Unity Group at the Pageant are $40 and $50 for reserved seats, and go on sale at 10:00 a.m. next Wednesday, September 25.
