Nearly fifty years have passed since Carlos Santana played at Woodstock. To celebrate that historic performance and the twentieth anniversary of his Supernatural album, he will be launching a 29-date North American tour starting June 22 that will hit Denver this summer.
“With Supernatural, I felt I had a masterpiece of joy in my heart,” says Santana in a statement. “While we were creating the album, I knew we were touching upon something inspiring and that we were creating music that was timeless, like Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On or Bob Marley’s Exodus. But no one was prepared for the Supernatural spiritual virus that moved across the world. The album touched little kids and grandparents and all points in between. I am very grateful to Clive Davis for helping me craft this seminal album that is still as relevant and infectious as the day it was released.”
Santana's show will be more than a trip into the past.
"We’re always moving forward, and we have incredible new songs and melodies that will inspire you,” Santana continues. “I feel like a twenty-year-old on stage playing with this band, and they deliver on every song. When we hit the stage, we know we will touch your heart and make you dance, sing, cry, laugh and leave your baggage behind. The shows will be well balanced between the hits of yesterday, today and tomorrow…with energy!”
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, January 25 at Live Nation or by phone at 303-893-TIXS.
