Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Carlos Santana, and the Doobie Brothers, will be featured at the Hollywood Bowl on June 24, 2019. See a music review of this event by Keith Block.
Produced by Live Nation, the performance is part of a three-month, 29-date Supernatural Now tour which will commemorate two of the most important milestones in Santana’s career: the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking, multiple Grammy-winning album Supernatural and the 50th anniversary of his momentous performance at Woodstock. Critically-acclaimed rock band The Doobie Brothers, who have sold more than 48 million albums and won four GRAMMY® Awards is set to perform as well. The band is known for their roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven rock and roll set.
Reflecting on the cosmic significance of both anniversaries occurring in the same year, Santana says, “Both were monumental moments in my life. Woodstock and Supernatural took me to places I never dreamed were possible. I embraced those incredible moments in my life with all my heart. Both were supreme lessons in maintaining focus, heart and integrity in every step every day and to strive to better oneself with a high standard on and off the stage. I cannot think of these two moments without thinking about Mr. Bill Graham and Mr. Clive Davis. They are two of many angels in my life that helped shape my career.”
While Santana will highlight songs from both his Supernatural and Woodstock eras on the Supernatural Now tour, the guitarist says that the set list won’t be a dedicated nostalgia trip. The band (which also features Santana’s wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, on drums) will perform new tracks from Santana’s soon-to-be released EP, In Search of Mona Lisa (due out January 25), as well as a much-anticipated, upcoming full-length produced by maverick hit-maker Rick Rubin. Carlos Santana recently signed with Concord Records, which will release both discs. “We’re always moving forward, and we have incredible new songs and melodies that will inspire you,” says Santana “I feel like a 20 year-old on stage playing with this band, and they deliver on every song. When we hit the stage, we know we will touch your heart and make you dance, sing, cry, laugh and leave your baggage behind. The shows will be well balanced between the hits of yesterday, today and tomorrow…with energy!”
The Doobie Brothers said “Its going to be a great tour…We look forward to sharing the stage with Santana and have an incredible set lined up for audiences.”
