Santana Sets ‘Supernatural Now’ Tour with Doobie Bros

Share This:

Carlos Santana announced on January 16 a North American summer tour to celebrate two important milestones of his career: the 50th anniversary of his band’s performance at the 1969 Woodstock festival, and the 20th anniversary of his 1999 Supernatural album. Special guests the Doobie Brothers will appear on all dates.

The three-month, 29-date celebration begins June 22 and concludes August 25. Tickets are available here.

The dates coincide with the two recently announced festivals that will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival. Santana told Rolling Stone that he will perform at Bethel Woods, the site of the original festival, on Aug. 17. That was confirmed by the organizers on Feb. 19.

Reflecting on the cosmic significance of both classic rock anniversaries occurring in the same year, Santana says, “Both were monumental moments in my life. Woodstock and Supernatural took me to places I never dreamed were possible. 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. I cannot think of these two moments without thinking about Mr. Bill Graham and Mr. Clive Davis. They are two of many angels in my life that helped shape my career.”

The 1999 album Supernatural was an unparalleled success and a watershed event in Santana’s career. Containing the back-to-back #1 singles “Smooth” and “Maria Maria,” the album sold over 30 million copies worldwide, topped the charts in over a dozen countries and swept the 2000 Grammy Awards, winning a record-tying nine Grammys including Album of the Year.
