Santana Back In Australia

Legendary guitar maestro Carlos Santana is back in Australia will take in five huge dates across the country on his Transmogrify Tour, starting off in Melbourne before gracing the Qudos bank arena in Sydney on Thursday April 13th.

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—Carlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.


Santana’s star arrived in the era-defining late 1960s San Francisco Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and other storied venues. The group emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at the Woodstock festival in 1969, the same year that its self-titled debut LP Santana came out. Introducing Santana’s first Top 10 hit, “Evil Ways,” the disc stayed on Billboard’s album chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics — and Billboard #1 albums — Abraxas and Santana III.

Now well into his fourth decade in the industry, and Four years on from his last Australian visit, Santana will take in five huge dates across the country on his Transmogrify Tour,Santana previously toured Australia in 2011, including a one-off show in the Hunter Valley with The Doobie Brothers, returning in 2013 for national shows with The Steve Miller Band. The music legend this time returns to our shores following the release of the wildly anticipated Santana IV record, featuring the original late-1960’s lineup reunited for the first time in 45 years.


The mighty Doobie Brothers will join Santana as Special Guests on the Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney dates, adding to both artist’s already announced appearances on the mammoth bill for the 28thAnnual Bluesfest in Byron Bay.

WHAT: Santana and The Doobie Brothers.

WHEN: Thursday,  April 13th.
