Blossom Music Center | Cuyahoga Falls, OH
Santana comes to Blossom Music Center on Wednesday 7th August 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their iconic appearance at Woodstock and the 20th anniversary of their 15-time platinum-selling album Supernatural! The Supernatural Now Tour also features support from The Doobie Brothers!
"Woodstock and Supernatural took me to places I never dreamed were possible," said Carlos Santana in a press release. "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."
Formed by Mexican-American guitarist Carlos Santana in San Francisco, California in 1966, American rock band Santana came to public attention in 1969 at the now-famous Woodstock festival, where they were regarded by many to be one of the highlights of the event. Their self-titled debut album came later that year, and was an international hit, peaking at Number 4 on the Billboard 200 and Number 26 on the UK Albums Chart. Santana's popularity steadily increased over the years, with the release of several albums and a dedicated touring schedule, but a lull in sales caused the band to take a seven-year hiatus from recording in 1992. The band made a victorious with the fifteen-time platinum-selling, Number One album Supernatural, which launched the Number One singles "Smooth" (ft. Rob Thomas) and "Maria Maria". The band and album were honored with nine Grammy Awards, including the award for Album of the Year (a tie with Michael Jackson for most Grammy Awards won in one night), and also won three Latin Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year. In 1998, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
