Santana Adds Vegas "Encore"

Carlos Santana has spent a good portion of the past few years hosting his ‘Santana: A Trip Through the Hits’ residency in Las Vegas. Though Santana doesn’t have any multi-week Vegas performances scheduled for the time being, he will return to Vegas’ The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for three encore performances on November 11, 12 and 13.

Santana recently wrapped-up their summer tour at Los Angeles, CA’s Hollywood Bowl on October 1. The guitarist’s new wife Cindy Blackman Santana sat in throughout the entire show while his son Salvador Santana played keys on “Corazon Espinado.” Percussionist Dan Caro also emerged for a medley of “Evil Ways/ A Love Supreme.”

Though a signature song of Santana, “Black Magic Woman” was originally a bluesy UK hit by Fleetwood Mac, written by guitarist Peter Green. Carlos Santana made it “completely new, totally familiar” by adding Latin rhythms and Gabor Szabo’s “Gypsy Queen.” Rockaeology at tells how Peter Green transformed an Otis Rush song into what would become a rock classic.
