Carlos Santana knows just how to pull the best sustain out of his classic Gibson Les Paul and South Africans will once again get to see the man in action on his Santana 2018 Divination Tour. Santana will return to South Africa in 2018, performing in Cape Town on 11 April, 2018 at Cape Town Stadium and Johannesburg on 13 and 14 April, 2018 at the Ticketpro Dome. Guest act will be Mango Groove. Santana, who became famous in the late 1960s, pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. His first Top 10 hit Evil Ways stayed on the Billboard chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics and Billboard number one albums Abraxas (Oye Como Va, Black Magic Woman) and Santana III (No One to Depend On, Everybody’s Everything). To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards including a record tying nine for a single project with 1999’s blockbuster Supernatural (Smooth, Maria, Maria). Among many honours, he received a Billboard Latin Music Awards 2009 Lifetime Achievement honour as well as Billboards Century Award in 1996.
Having sold over 100 million records to date Santana has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is listed in the top 20 greatest guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine. In 2013, Carlos was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award. Currently, he is headlining at a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. From Santana’s earliest days as a ground breaking Afro-Latin blues rock outfit to the mega chart topping collaboration of Supernatural, the sound of Santana is one of the world’s best known signature tones.
