Santana is making his way back to South Africa! Big Concerts announced today that the world-famous guitarist will be making his way back to the country in 2018 as part of his Divination Tour. Santana will be performing in Cape Town on 11th April 2018 at Cape Town Stadium (intimate configuration) and Johannesburg on 13th and 14th April 2018 at the Ticketpro Dome. What makes this concert even greater is that Mango Groove has been announced as the official opening act.
Mango Groove is the perfect addition to the show thanks to their phenomenal take on African music. The group will be performing the songs we know and love such as ‘Special Star’ and ‘Dance Sum More’ as well as new songs from their latest album ‘Faces To The Sun’. The group has become a household name in South Africa selling over a million albums and promise to deliver one of their most exciting shows to date.
Carlos Santana, who first became famous in the late 1960s with his band Santana, pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. His first Top 10 hit ‘Evil Ways’ stayed on the Billboard chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics and Billboard number one albums ‘Abraxas’ (“Oye Como Va”, “Black Magic Woman”) and Santana III (“No One to Depend On”, “Everybody’s Everything”). To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards including a record tying nine for a single project with 1999’s blockbuster Supernatural (“Smooth”, “Maria, Maria”). The star had a phenomenal response to his previous South African tour and we can’t wait to welcome this legend back to our shores in April.
