Iconic guitarist Carlos Santana, 61, and his band, including drummer Dennis Chambers and keyboardist Chester Thompson, has just signed a two-year deal through 2010 to do 36 shows a year in the newly refurbished The Joint, which opens on April 17. Their Supernatural tour starts on May 27 and continues through June 14; they’re scheduled to return in September.
Santana said he will approach his upcoming The Joint residency “from the point of bringing a spiritual confidence,” philosophically musing “a sunset and sunrise is never the same. Making love is never the same unless you’re doing something wrong.”
Produced by media production company Frank the Plumber, the group will do four shows a week for three weeks per run. Tickets go on sale today.
