On March 21st, 2016, a few weeks prior to the release of the “Santana IV” album, the original Santana band took to the stage – for the first time since 1973 – at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas to deliver an energy-packed show that combines tracks from the new Santana IV album with classic hits from the band’s first three albums. Exuding raw energy, powerful musicianship, soulful vocals, and soaring guitars and organ, this hugely anticipated reunion brought back the scintillating combination of rock, Latin, blues, jazz and African rhythms which is the band’s trademark and made them a household name.
