Guitar Legends was a five-night global broadcast event that took place in the Spanish city of Seville in October 1991, shown on worldwide television and starring perhaps the biggest array of top guitarists ever assembled. Five 90-minute shows and a one-hour documentary were broadcast, with 45 countries showing live shows. Thirty countries showed a second broadcast. Four hours of the event were broadcast on radio in 105 countries.
Each of the five concerts, from October 15 to 19, was devoted to a different musical style -- Blues, jazz/fusion, Conceptual, Rock and Heavy Rock. The event was conceived and produced by top British impresario and producer Tony Hollingsworth. It was held to promote the idea of Seville as a entertainment destination and thereby help draw support for the world fair, Expo '92, due to be held in the city the following April.
Each night's concert was greeted with huge enthusiasm by the audience -- and the artists appeared to have enjoyed the concerts just as much. After each of the first four nights, says Hollingsworth, several asked for their flights home to be changed so they could stay to watch the following night's performances.
