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).
THE DOOBIE BROTHERS’ legacy has been built not just on hit records, but also on an unrivalled commitment to musical integrity and a steadfast allegiance to their enthusiastic fan base. The band’s ability to evolve in a constantly changing industry and connections to generations of listening audiences is a testament to their craft. With founding members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons, and 30 year-plus veteran John McFee, The Doobies will be performing as a seven-piece band including Bill Payne, Ed Toth, John Cowan and Marc Russo.
THE DOOBIE BROTHERS were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004, have won four Grammy Awards and sold more than 48 million records worldwide (including three multi-platinum, seven platinum and fourteen gold albums). Their 1976 Best of the Doobies has sold more than 12 million copies, earning rare RIAA Diamond status. Their No.1 gold certified singles ‘Black Water’ (1974) and ‘What A Fool Believes’ (1979) lead a catalogue of hits that includes ‘Listen To The Music’, ‘Jesus Is Just All Right’, ‘Rockin’ Down The Highway’, ‘Long Train Runnin’, ‘China Grove’, ‘Take Me In Your Arms’, ‘Takin’ It To The Streets’, ‘Minute By Minute’, ‘You Belong To Me’ and ‘The Doctor’. In all, The Doobies have tallied five Top 10 singles and sixteen Top 40 hits.
SANTANA will touch down in Australia with Special Guests THE DOOBIE BROTHERS straight off the back of a multi-year residency at the famous House of Blues in Las Vegas. He will be set to ignite stages across the country once again, with a style that fuses Latin rock, blues, soul and jazz, transcending time and the limits of genre typecasting. Don’t miss it!
