SANTANA July 2013 UK Arena Tour Dates


Santana have announced details of their first UK shows in three years and will be coming to Birmingham, Manchester and London this July!

Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world's best-known musical signatures.

Having sold in excess of 90 million records worldwide, performed to over 100 million people globally and having 10 GRAMMY® Awards under-his-belt, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) Santana is now well into their fourth decade of recording and performing their own fusion of Rock, Jazz, Latin and Blues.

Among many other honours, Carlos Santana has received Billboard Latin Music Awards’ 2009 Lifetime Achievement honour, and has been cited by Rolling Stone as #20 on the magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. With the  release of 2010’s ‘Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time’, Santana joined the Rolling Stones as one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album in each decade from the 1960s on.

Santana’s last album, Shape Shifter (2012) was the first for his new label, Starfaith Records and debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200. The 13-song set is an instrumental tour de force long awaited by fans (only one song features vocals, by Santana’s lead vocalists Andy Vargas and Tony Lindsay).

Santana is virtually unique, being one of the only bands to have sustained their success on the charts and on the road as a sold-out stadium attraction. These dates will embrace the full spectrum of Carlos Santana’s longevity, creativity, and soulful musical conscience.
