Supporting Santana’s latest album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics Of All Time, the North American “Sound Of Collective Consciousness Tour” begins near Seattle in Washburn, Wash., at the White River Amphitheatre Aug. 25. Other stops include Calgary at Scotiabank Saddledome Aug. 29; El Paso at Don Haskins Center Sept. 16 and Phoenix at the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion Sept. 18.

The co-headline romp with Lopez, dubbed “Divine Rascals,” serves up laughs with excellent musicianship beginning with two nights in Morrison, Colo., near Denver at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre Sept. 3-4. Other locations are Concord, Calif., at the Sleep Train Pavilion Sept. 25 and Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl Oct. 1.
“I’m delighted to be going on the road with George Lopez,” Santana said. “Besides giving me the chance to perform alongside a dear friend, these shows take me back to the grand old Bill Graham days, when different kinds of entertainment were featured on the same bill. Divine Rascals will be a joyous experience.”
Tickets for the Sound Of Consciousness and Divine Rascals tours go on sale May 13. For more information, visit Santana.com.
