For 40 years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY Awards and three Latin GRAMMY Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMY’s. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013).
Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on. April 15, 2016 marked the release date of Santana IV, the wildly anticipated studio album that reunited the revered early ‘70s lineup of Santana. Santana IV debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart and marks Santana’s fourteenth Top 10 album.
In the fall of 2014, Carlos Santana released his memoir “The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light.” In 2017, Carlos Santana and Cindy Blackman Santana joined forces with The Isley Brothers (Ronald and Ernie) to release Power of Peace, an album celebrating the timeless sounds of funk, soul, blues, rock, jazz, and pop. Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
House of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay has been home to Santana’s live concert since 2012. Fans have partied all night within a few feet of the musical icon with the La Zona Fiesta tickets. The popular VIP packages will again be available for purchase with customizable experiences that include limited edition photos and specialty dining/beverage packages featuring stage-side dining.
A portion of all tickets sold will be donated to The Milagro Foundation. Milagro (“Miracle”) is a charitable foundation supporting underrepresented and vulnerable children and youth in the areas of arts, education and health. The Milagro Foundation was created in 1998 by Carlos Santana and his family to benefit children worldwide.
Another contribution will be made to the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation. Founded in 1993, Music Forward Foundation accelerates real-life skills for youth using music as the bridge to success. By channeling the power of music, we help kids create pathways to productive, sustainable, and fulfilling lives. Through music industry mentorships and access to music education, we are removing the barriers between need and success. Learn more at www.hobmusicforward.org
