The easiest way to do this if you have Illustrator CS6 or newer is to just apply a gradient to a thick stroke:

You can then use Object > Expand Appearance to convert the stroke to a gradient mesh shape for further manipulation.

There are two ways I found in Adobe Illustrator these both are in envelope distort command under Object Menu::

  1. Envelope with Warp
  2. Envelope with Mesh

Take a rectangle or any shape put gradient inside it and run these two commands to modify your shapes and the gradient will run in the same direction.
