Where do you go to see the Grand Ole Opry here in Nashville? At Ryman Auditorium? Correct. Where do you go to see one of the most popular Rock bands, specifically Latin Rock, of all times? Bridgestone Arena? Marathon Music Center? Municipal Auditorium. No, no and um, no. While all these places can rock it out here in NashVegas, Santana will be putting some Latin Rock on us at the Ryman on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Now, listen carefully to this part; The Santana tickets go on sale Friday, December 12 at noon. That’s just three days away, so you might want to throw the Santa letter away and give him a person to Elf call on Wednesday. The tickets are $85, $95 and $350.
The Santana Corazon Tour supports Santana’s latest studio album, “Corazon” which is the musician’s first ever Latin Music album. That’s about it as far as firsts for the megahit star goes. This man has ccomplised so much in his career, which encompasses 40 years and 40 albums, with over 100 million records being sold and more than 100 million fans at concerts the world over. The extraordinarily gifted musician has won ten Grammy Awards – so far, and three Latin Grammy Awards. And the list goes on and on and on, including being accepted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 98, the Billboard Century Award in 96 and having won a record-tying nine Grammys for a single project when in 1999, Santana’s album Supernatural got got accolade after accolade, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”, not to mention the three latin Grammys he got for the same album.
This current album, Corazon, is a collaborative effort of Latin Music’s finest musicians which took the hit from super-star to super-duper-star status. The album, certified as a U.S. Latin Double Platinum and was the top selling Latin Music album in the U.S. for six weeks in a row, isn’t the only thing the man Rolling Stone Magazine named as #15 of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”, has been up to of late. Just this fall, Santana’s memoirs were released in a book called “The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light.” The book is said to be an “inspiring story of spiritual commitment and musical fearlessness, that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, nor at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations, and the divine and infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.”
Celebrate Santana’s latest album and memoirs with him at the Santana Corazon Tour concert at Ryman Auditorium, Wednesday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 12 at Noon. For more information,
