Santana on Global Consciousness Tour
Santana is bringing the Global Consciousness Tour to downtown St. Petersburg’s Al Lang Stadium. 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of Carlos Santana’s groundbreaking album Supernatural and the 50th anniversary of his legendary performance at Woodstock. The ten-time GRAMMY®-Award winner and three-time Latin GRAMMY®-Award-winning rock icon will celebrate these historic anniversaries during his energy-infused Global Consciousness Tour.
Showcasing hits from Supernatural and other albums, the Global Consciousness Tour tour kicks off in March 2019 with stops in Mexico, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas and St Pete!
Throughout 2018 and 2019, Santana will continue headlining a multi-year residency at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. More dates for the the Global Consciousness Tour will be announced in 2019.
Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana 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—Santana has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.
