The 67-year-old, who last month published his memoir, The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light, will first resume his residency in Las Vegas with a string of January shows at the Mandalay Bay Hotel’s House of Blues.
But after taking a month’s break, the Latin rock legend will then return to touring in support of his 22nd studio effort which, thanks to collaborations with the likes of Gloria Estefan, Ziggy Marley and Miguel, peaked at No.9 on the Billboard 200 back in May.
St. Petersburg’s Mahaffey Theatre is the first venue that will welcome the ten-time Grammy winner during his latest trek on March 8, before he moves onto the likes of Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Mar 11, Birmingham’s BJCC Concert Hall on Mar 15 and the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie on Mar 18, eventually wrapping up Stateside at Corpus Christi’s Selena Auditorium on Mar 19.
Santana will then play three dates in Mexico and a further eight Vegas shows before travelling across the Atlantic for a European jaunt which takes in France’s Nimes Festival and Les Deferlantes Festival as well as headline shows in Germany, Poland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria and Italy.
Fans with tickets for the first leg of the Corazon world tour were treated to performances of his number one singles “Maria, Maria” and “Smooth,” his early hits “Soul Sacrifice,” “Oye Como Va” and “Europa (Earth’s Cry, Heaven’s Smile)”, and his covers of The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “If 6 Was 9” and Babatunde Olatunji’s “Jin-Go-Lo-Ba,” as well as material from his new LP.
Santana tickets for these new dates are expected to go on sale later this week, but in the meantime, TicketIQ still has Santana tickets on offer for a number of his Vegas residency shows.
