Santana's Guitar Heaven Tour

Chugg Entertainment has announced that come March, Santana, one of the greatest musicians and legendary guitarists of our generation is set to ignite Australian & New Zealand shores. Toting a style that defies definition, immediately recognizable yet unlike any other, Santana's fusion of Latin rock, blues, soul and jazz comes in full swing on stage in a way that transcends time and the limits of genre typecasting.


The GUITAR HEAVEN TOUR begins on Sunday 13 March at Sandalford Estate Swan Valley in Perth, followed by Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday 16 March, and then the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Thursday 17 March before heading to New Zealand for shows at Vector Arena in Auckland on Sunday 20 March and Christchurch's CBS Canterbury Arena on Tuesday 22 March. The tour then heads back to Australia for a performance at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Thursday 24 March, then Sydney's Acer Arena on Friday 25 March. The tour then concludes with a very special performance at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley on Saturday 26 March, where Santana will be joined by very special guests The Doobie Brothers.

For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 90 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten Grammy Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999's Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for Smooth). In 1998, the group was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whose web page on their induction notes, "Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rocks true virtuosos and guiding lights." Among many other honours, Carlos Santana has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time." His newest CD, GUITAR HEAVEN... THE GREATEST GUITAR CLASSICS OF ALL TIMES (ARISTA) (featuring While My Guitar Gently Weeps), was released in late September 2010. Celebrating this chart debut, Santana joins the ranks of the Rolling Stones as the only musical act in chart history to score at least one Top 10 album in every decade beginning with the 1960s. GUITAR HEAVEN... is Santana's 29th Billboard Top 200 charting release, 12th Top 10 album debut and third Top 10 debut in the past 5 years.

Since its #5 debut on the Australian charts GUITAR HEAVEN has achieved gold status. It was produced by Howard Benson, Matt Serletic, Clive Davis and Carlos Santana who devised a list of guitar-centric titles - and then invited a who's who of guest vocalists to perform on every track. Singers range from Chris Cornell (on Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love), India.Arie and Yo Yo Ma (on the album's first single While My Guitar Gently Weeps), Pat Monahan (on Van Halen's Dance the Night Away), Chester Bennington and Ray Manzarek (on The Doors' Riders on the Storm), Rob Thomas (on Cream's Sunshine Of Your Love), Scott Weiland (on the Rolling Stones' Can't You Hear Me Knockin'), Chris Daughtry (on the album's current single Def Leppard's Photograph), Gavin Rossdale (on T. Rex's Bang A Gong), rapper Nas (on AC/DC's Back In Black), veteran Joe Cocker (on Jimi Hendrix's Little Wing), and more.

There are few artists of this caliber, and fewer opportunities to see them live. Do not miss the chance to see one of the most enduring guitar legends in March 2011.
