Carlos Santana announces three UK shows as part of 2020 world tour


Story by Jack Foley

TEN time Grammy®-Award winning guitarist Carlos Santana has announced three UK shows as part of his Miraculous 2020 World Tour.

The music legend will play shows at the SSE Hydro, in Glasgow, London’s O2 Arena, and Dublin’s 3Arena along with stops in Italy, Germany, Scandinavia.

The dates will see Santana performing passion-filled songs from their 50-year career, including fan favourites from Woodstock to Supernatural and beyond. The tour will commemorate two very important milestones in the iconic guitarist’s career: the 20th anniversary of his ground-breaking, multiple Grammy-winning album Supernatural and the 50th anniversary of his masterpiece, Abraxas.

Santana will also feature what he calls ‘the new hymns and songs of tomorrow’. The band (which also features Santana’s wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, on drums) will also perform energy-infused songs from Santana’s 2019 album, Africa Speaks, produced by maverick hit-maker Rick Rubin.

Santana commented: “When you come to a Santana concert, the miraculous happens. Miraculous means, transforming darkness into delight. I feel like a 20-year-old on stage playing with this band, and they deliver high energy 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. Our vision-mission is designed to elevate, transform and illumine consciousness to make you want to embrace your own light and allow for miracles and blessings to flow from your own heart.”
