House of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay has been home to Santana’s live concert since 2012. Fans have been able to party all night within a few feet of the musical icon. “It is an honor to call House of Blues in Las Vegas my home,” Carlos Santana said. “We love the intimacy at HOB. Every day, we look forward to create newness, freshness and connect people to their own light with what we have and who we are – The Universal Tone.” The feeling is mutual. “We’re happy to have Carlos back. We’ve had an amazing run with him — virtually every show was a sell-out. He’s the perfect superstar talent appearing in a perfect venue that gives our audiences an intimate experience that can’t be found anywhere else,” said House of Blues President Ron Bension.
For forty 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”). He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), and received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Celebrating the chart debut of Guitar Heaven (Arista) in 2010, Santana joined 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. In 2013, Carlos Santana was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award. Santana’s new album CORAZÓN (RCA/Sony Latin Iberia), due out May 6, 2014, is a collaborative effort with the biggest names in Latin music.
