WITH A LITTLE LOVE....
Saw Carlos Santana and the band in the early '70's at Six Flags Over Mid-America and have carried his/their spirit in music ever since. Went tonight to The Fabulous Fox by myself with a single balcony ticket. What a Gift! I love St. Louis, her peeps & and the Music. Oh, the music. What a Town - venue - what a night!!

SANTANA WAS AWESOME YET AGAIN!
I’ve been a Santana fan since the 70’s and have loved following his career and his constant efforts to make beautiful music. He doesn’t disappoint very often and tonight’s concert was no exception. He and his talented band mates put on an excellent show. Even at 70 he’s an unbelievable guitarist! I loved his music and his message of love and happiness. What a wonderfully fantastic evening. Even after my sixth concert over 30 years I remain inspired and in awe by his genius.

CARLOS ROCKS OTTAWA
Top notch gig! Carlos at his best, tight, powerful and professional. Cindy's drum solo blew us away as well. Vocals were hot and fun. They had us rocking the joint apart. A classic to see and remember. Get ready Montreal here they come!
Gord Doran from Winnipeg, Manitoba
He is not much for words and prefers to let his music do the talking. It spoke volumes and volumes. Phenomenal musicians that played tight..tight tight. The lighting and video effects were excellent but not over done. The focus was as it should be, on one of the best guitarists in the world. The only complaint lies with the BellMts facility. I have been to several events there lately including concerts and Jets games and there is not doubt that the sound system is NOT up to snuff. While the acoustics in the building are very good... the pa system is sorely lacking in bottom end. If they tout it as a world class facility that can draw world class acts they really need to enhance the sound system which is 2nd rate at best.

CARLOS THE LEGEND
I saw Santana in 1977 at the Ottawa Civic Centre and I believe he hasn't done a show in an Arena in Ottawa since then. I know he was at Bluesfest a few years ago and I saw him then. He survived Woodstock. I think the show here Sunday night was his best. The Geritol crowd like myself were in full form. Great Guitarist.......Great Band.....Very Spirtual which was actually comforting.

SANTANA PORTLAND ORE MARCH 3 2018
What an excellent concert and crowd ! I had good seats with a good view in the veterns memorial coliseum .stage was close. Parking was a breeze--I parked across the street in rodeway inn for 20$. crowd control was no issue. blew thru the security check, was never hassled for anything. typical pricey food and drink. Didnt find much memorabilia for sale inside or outside like tee shirts and stuff. I first saw Santana in 73 right here in portland and now last night. Carlos is a genius, talented, humble, and going as strong as ever ! from start to finish it was energetic, brilliant . His wife was on the drums and never missed a beat ! This is by far one of the best concerts I have ever attended ! would see him again and again. So glad he is making a tour through the Northwest. Well done Carlos !

SANTANA WHEAT LAND CONCERT

Lorna Seldon Burd from Vancouver Island
White River Amphitheatre June 29th... the traffic was so packed (but very chilled) that we arrived at 7.30pm, but wow! I am still humming. Was so thrilled to catch a good few songs and esp “Long Train Running”💖 and then Carlos... loved the African supernatural visuals, historical Santana visuals, crazy percussion maestros all around and the trombonist!!!! I boogied my butt off from the moment we arrived, to the end... only song missing was “Samba PaTi”. Everyone’s solos- esp Cindy’s solo were ‘supernatural’ Beautiful harmonies, fun guitar collaborations. Hope you could feel the love from the audience. Thank you so much.

SANTANA BRINGS 50 YEARS OF WOW TO WHITERIVER
Carlos Santana and his excellent band brought 50 years of great music to The amphitheater last night. Starting with Woodstock era songs and moving on to newer jazzier tunes always with a hard driving Latin beat. His guitar playing skills have not diminished with the years. If anything he is a more nuanced player willing to allow his excellent band shine through. His comments and stories between songs were always interesting and showed a great sense of humor. The Doobie Brothers opened the show with a great set of their hits. Their performance was tight and obviously well rehearsed. A great show altogether.
Jesse from Chicago, Illinois
Santana is great he has not slowed down a bit so glad I went the man gives it his all every show.

SANTANA TORONTO AUG 6TH
As always, divine...awesome... uplifting!! 2 thumbs up - way up!!!! Viva Santana!!!
Jim Lettuce from Cincinnati, Ohio
SANTANA / DOOBIE BROTHERS
What a great show. I've seen Carlos a bunch of times but hadn't seen the Doobie Brothers since high school in Des Moines. They put on a solid opening lead-in with outstanding renditions of most of their hits. Santana followed that up with a tremendous performance. He is still a virtuoso guitarist and the band he has put together totally shined. Both lead singers, trombone, keyboards, percussion - all stellar. Carlos' wife Cindy Blackman also had a prolonged drum solo that was electric. The Doobies also joined them onstage for a bit which was also a treat. Santana is always a must-see event and this was no exception.

SANTANA CONCERT AT MANSFIELD, MA 8/20/2019
Great concert!! The best guitarist in the world. Worth every penny.
Patrick Gilhooly from Hartford, Connecticut
SANTANA & DOOBIE BROTHERS
Hartford CT show August 19, 2019 was amazing . Santanta rocks. Lights, music , concert venue were all a treat. Carlos having the Doobie Brothers come on stage to play together was top shelf. Carlos Santana message of love, hope, tranquility and peace to each other was moving. The many talented musicians showed their expertise and each was given a chance to show their talents by their respectfull leader Carlos. The female drummer was extremely gifted. You cannot get a better proformance and presentation . The sound and positive energy for this craftman is highly professional and an awesome concert experience

CARLOS SANTANA BEST CONCERT EVER!
I have seen probably over a hundred concerts in my life & I finally made it to see Santana. The best concert I have ever seen! They came out & rocked that stage! The music was unbelievable live! I have always loved Santana but was totally blown away by the live show. Every member of the band was so talented in their own right. The girl drummer Cindy / Sydney not sure, hit those drums for three hours straight & she was incredible! Her arms have to be like jelly after beating the shit out of those drums all night. The whole band had stamina like I’ve never seen. Every band member was multi talented. Carlos Santana did not disappoint. His son did some rap that was awesome & played a keyboard solo, the song was just the opposite of rap & it was beautiful. I have to see them again. I can’t make it to NY tomorrow cause I have other plans fir my birthday but I’m looking into flying out to Vegas & seeing them at the House of Blues!! Can’t wait to see them again & I am sitting front row for this amazing show! Love love loved it ❤️❤️❤️ Rock on Carlos Santana & Band ... loved the message you put out there also Peace Out ✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻 Till I see you again Sue K

SANTANA AND THE BAND WERE AWESOME
Loved the collaboration between the musicians and of course--Carlos is a force in creating an awesome synergy. The concert was a perfect way to celebrate life.
Mike from Saratoga, New York
Great show with the Doobie Brothers. I would make a suggestion to the sound folks. Many of us felt the keyboards were too load and when the artist were speaking to the audience you could not hear what they were saying. Just a tweet was needed.
Sylvia K from Toronto, Ontario
CARLOS HAS LEFT THE ROOM
I have never attended a concert in my long life where the lead was entirely absent from his/her own show, ... which was tragically the state of affairs at the Budweiser stage in Toronto the other night. The focus of the jumbo screens was all over the vocalists, pianist and percussionist and not at all on Santana for good reason. His lacking participation in his own concert was more like a bassist in the back ground. Concerts are SO expensive these days one would hope that if you no longer have it together to put on a worthwhile show than do your fans a favour and politely bow out so they can at least save their hard earned money and remember you as the super star you once were rather than now thinking about you as an ego that doesn't know when to call it quits.
