Carlos Santana will be in Denver July 3.

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. The Doobie Brothers will open for Santana at the Pepsi Center on Wednesday, July 3; tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, January 25, at Live Nation or by phone at 303-893-TIXS.

"We’re always moving forward, and we have incredible new songs and melodies that will inspire you,” Santana said in announcing the tour. “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!”

The Who is hitting the road on May 19; the act's tour will be a celebration of the rock band's first album in thirteen years. The Denver concert is slated for September 29 at the Pepsi Center. A presale for Who fans starts at 10 a.m. Monday, January 21, and runs through 10 a.m. Wednesday, January 23. Public tickets go on sale Thursday, January 24, at Live Nation. Tickets purchased online will include a redeemable code for a CD of the new album. For each ticket sold, $1 will go to Teen Cancer America.
