The new-old Santana, featuring guitarist Carlos Santana alongside keyboardist/vocalist Gregg Rolie, guitarist Neal Schon, percussionist Michael Carabello and drummer Michael Shrieve, played the House of Blues at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on March 21, and you can watch a portion of the show via the fan-shot footage above. The band’s performance was filmed for television and home video release, but the band has a few other things to get out of the way first.
The first order of business is Santana’s upcoming tour, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on April 13 — two days before the release of the new album — and continue throughout the year. The band is booked to perform a handful of co-headlining dates with Journey, as well as an all-star homecoming concert with the Doobie Brothers and the Steve Miller Band in San Francisco on Sept. 4.
