SANTANA LIVE IN CANBERRA
Legendary guitar virtuoso, multi Grammy Award winner and a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, CARLOS SANTANA, and his band SANTANA, will take in five huge dates across the country on his Transmogrify Tour.
SANTANA previously toured Australia in 2011, including a one-off show in the Hunter Valley with The Doobie Brothers, returning in 2013 for national shows with The Steve Miller Band. Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, SANTANA returns to our shores performing songs from over four decades of his career including hits and songs of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
The passion infused, melodic sound of CARLOS SANTANA’s guitar is one of the world's best-known musical signatures. For more than four decades - from Santana's earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion outfit in San Francisco - Carlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.
From Woodstock to the Hollywood Bowl and everywhere in between, CARLOS SANTANA is one of the most prolific and influential guitarists of all time. In a career spanning more than forty years, Santana has sold in excess of 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts across the globe, with no less than ten Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards to his name. 1999’s Supernatural album saw Santana chalk up a record-tying nine Grammy’s for a single project, including awards for Album of the Year and Record of the Year for ‘Smooth’. Among many other honours, Rolling Stone has cited Carlos Santana as #15 on their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”.
April 2016 heralded the release of SANTANA’s 24th studio album, Santana IV, featuring sixteen all-new tracks and claiming a No.5 Billboard Top 200 debut. Fans were thrilled to have the original late-1960’s lineup featured on the record, the same band that performed at Woodstock; Carlos Santana (guitar, vocals), Gregg Rolie (keyboards, lead vocals), Neal Schon (guitar, vocals), Michael Carabello (percussion) and Michael Shrieve (drums).
SANTANA play a standalone show at Canberra’s Royal Theatre, Saturday 15th April. Dynamic young indie artist, TASH SULTANA, will join Santana at this intimate show. Tash has been making waves across Australia this year, generating massive street buzz and creating a legion of fans with her carefully crafted, edgy fusion of multi-instrumental pieces that see the songstress shift from singing to beat boxing, combined with her unique percussion styled finger-tapping guitar.
