Santana announce UK Arena tour for July 2013
Story by Jack Foley
SANTANA have announced details of their first UK shows in three years.
The legendary outfit will play venues in Birmingham, Manchester and London this July (2013).
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 Santana is now well into their fourth decade of recording and performing their own fusion of Rock, Jazz, Latin and Blues.
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 UK dates are (all July 2013):
17 – Birmingham LG Arena
18 – Manchester Arena
19 – London Wembley Arena
Tickets are £60.80/£45.80/£35.80 (£65.80/£48.30/£38.30 London) and go on sale on Friday, February 1 at 9.30am.
Tickets include an 80p donation in respect of The Santana Milagro Foundation.
