Show time is 8:00 pm, doors open one hour prior. The Carlos Santana Universal Tone Tour 2010 gets underway on June 30 with an initial North American leg running through early August.  Carlos and the Santana Band will be joined on the road by special guest Steve Winwood, who will open the dates.

The Universal Tone Tour 2010 will feature hits from Santana’s four-decade-long career, as well as songs from a brand new studio album that Carlos Santana is currently putting finishing touches on.   Santana’s most recent release was the 2010 reissue of “Supernatural ” as a 2-CD Legacy Edition — featuring 11 previously un-issued bonus tracks — in celebration of the classic nine-time GRAMMY-winning album’s tenth anniversary.

Carlos Santana became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana , which pioneered rock, salsa and jazz fusion. The band’s sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin rhythms featuring percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not generally heard in rock music. Santana continued to work in these forms over the following decades. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. Rolling Stone named Santana number 15 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003. He has won 10 Grammy Awards and 3 Latin Grammy Awards. For more information, visit;

Steve Winwood will release a multi-disc career retrospective on June 7 entitled “Revolutions – The Very Best Of Steve Winwood.” It is a portrait of one of the most influential British musicians in rock history; a singer-songwriter, peerless vocalist, guitarist and keyboard player.

With track listings personally selected by Steve Winwood from his five decade career, “Revolutions: The Very Best Of Steve Winwood” will be available in two high quality formats: a single CD for the casual fan and a four CD deluxe box set including 60 page book for the connoisseur, with sleeve notes by writer Dylan Jones.

Steve Winwood has written and performed rock, blues-rock and jazz music since his teens. He is a multi-instrumentalist who plays Hammond organ, guitar, bass, and other string instruments. In addition to his solo career, he was a member of the bands the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic and Blind Faith. He has won multiple Grammy Awards. In 2008, Rolling Stone ranked Winwood #33 in its 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.
