Santana has announced 15 fall dates sandwiched between the band's upcoming Las Vegas residency. The “Blessings And Miracles” tour begins on September 11th in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Borgata Spa & Resort and closes on October 2nd at Durant, Oklahoma's Choctaw Grand Theater. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, June 18th at Santana.com.
Santana is busy prepping its latest album, titled Blessings And Miracle, which will feature a team-up with Steve Winwood on a cover of Procol Harum's “Whiter Shade Of Pale.” Other high-profile guests include Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Christ Stapelton, and a reunion with Rob Thomas.
We asked Carlos Santana what advice he would give to budding musicians launching their careers today: “Don't pay attention to the business. Pay attention to life. People need water. People need air. People need music. And if you're a good musician, if you play piano at Nordstrom's and they fire you because nobody buys anything when you're playing, because they're all looking at you? (laughter) — that's a badge of honor (laughter).”
