Carlos Santana Announces SA April Tour Dates

The guitar wizard returns to SA and will be supported by Mango Groove.

6 Dec 2017 / Opinion / written by TATC Staff

Big Concerts announced this morning that Carlos Santana will be returning to South Africa in 2018 performing in Cape Town on 11th April 2018 at Cape Town Stadium (intimate configuration) and Johannesburg on 13th and 14th April 2018 at the Ticketpro Dome. Santana’s special guests will be local greats Mango Groove.

Carlos Santana, who first became famous in the late 1960s with his band Santana, pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. His first Top 10 hit ‘Evil Ways’ stayed on the Billboard chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics and Billboard number one albums ‘Abraxas’ (“Oye Como Va”, “Black Magic Woman”) and Santana III (“No One to Depend On”, “Everybody’s Everything”). To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards including a record tying nine for a single project with 1999’s blockbuster Supernatural (“Smooth”, “Maria, Maria”).

From Santana’s earliest days as a ground breaking Afro-Latin blues rock outfit to the mega chart topping collaboration of ‘Supernatural’. The sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world’s best known musical signatures.

Santana’s special guest will be Mango Groove, whose career has spanned an exciting and turbulent time in the history of South Africa. Since the iconic multi-platinum release in 1989, the band, together with its charismatic lead singer Claire Johnston, has gone on to become a household name in South Africa. To date Mango Groove have sold over a million albums. Putting it simply, nothing sounds quite like Mango Groove.
