Santana announces 2008 tour dates


Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the recent release of their first ever compilation Ultimate Santana, Santana have just announced UK arena dates for 2008.

A total of three shows have been announced so far, including a night at London’s O2 Arena in June.

Having sold in excess of 90 million records worldwide, performed to over 100 million people globally and having 10 Grammy Awards under-their-belt, Santana is now well into their fourth decade of recording and performing their own fusion of Rock, Jazz, Latin and Blues.

2007 represents 40 years since the original Santana Blues Band played its first shows in San Francisco.

Today, 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.

The tour dates will embrace the full spectrum of Carlos Santana’s longevity, creativity and soulful musical conscience.

The dates are (all June 2008):

20 – Birmingham NEC
21 – Manchester EN Arena
22 – London O2 Arena

Tickets go on sale Friday, November 23 at 9.30am.
