Recognised as one of the greatest guitarists on the planet, Santana first came to public attention in the sixties as the founder of his eponymous band. A star turn at the 1969 Woodstock festival made their name and Santana has been throwing out licks ever since, either leading his band or as a solo artist. His career has had its ups and downs, but was thoroughly revived in the late 1990s, with a series of collaborative albums with some of the world's biggest stars. 1999's Supernatural, which won an astounding nine Grammy Awards, boasted guest stars as diverse as Eric Clapton and Lauryn Hill, while 2002's Shaman once again blended Santana's soulful playing with the world of pop and hip hop, featuring the likes of Macy Gray and Dido.
In 2018 Santana is now leading the way in Las Vegas entertainment with a residency like no other as he headlines his greatest hits at the iconic House of Blues with dates through to May 2018.
