Santana Announce Summer Tour
After a reunion album by and some shows last year with the lineup that helped make Santana one of the most popular bands in the late ’60s and early ’70s, the group will return to the road this summer.
But this latest round of dates for the Carlos Santana-led group doesn’t include the prime lineup of keyboardist and singer Gregg Rolie, guitarist Neal Schon, percussionist Michael Carabello and drummer Michael Shrieve.
The Transmogrify Tour kicks off on June 23 in Woodinville, Wash., and wraps up on Sept. 11 in Anaheim. In between, Santana will play close to 20 dates in Phoenix, San Antonio, St. Louis and Nashville. You can see the full list of tour dates below.
First, the band will head overseas for tours in Australia, New Zealand and Japan in April, and sprinkle some extended stays at the Las Vegas House of Blues throughout the year, including shows in May, September and November.
Santana released a live album by the reunited band last year that was recorded at the Las Vegas House of Blues. The dates were in support of IV, that group’s first album together since Santana III in 1971. Since then, leader Carlos Santana has led many incarnations of the band through various ups and downs over the past 45 years, including a 1999 comeback record, Supernatural, that topped the charts and won a ton of Grammys.
