One of the most recognized musical signatures in the world is the sound of Carlos Santana, delivered with the same passion and soul as his guitar. Now you can experience this and more with the “Santana – 1001 Rainbows Tour” coming to the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino at 8 p.m. June 24.
“Santana’s ever-evolving sounds have always been ahead of their time in terms of universal appeal, and they are ideally aligned for the fan experience at the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino,” said Cathy Price, vice president of marketing at Niagara Casinos.
The most notable albums in an illustrious career include “Santana,” “Abraxas” and “Supernatural.” Hit songs “Evil Ways,” “Black Magic Woman,” “Oye Como Va” and the instrumental “Samba Pa Ti” are just some of the many iconic songs fans have come to enjoy from Santana. This has resulted in the band selling over 100 million records and performing at more than 100 million concerts worldwide. Not to mention the many accolades the group has compiled (10 Grammy Awards, including a record-tying ninth for 1999's Album and Record of the Year, “Smooth”; and three Latin Grammys).
Carlos Santana himself has received numerous awards, including Billboard Latin Music Awards’ 2009 Lifetime Achievement honor and Billboard’s Century Award in 1996. Rolling Stone has also named him No. 15 on the magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”
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 10 album for six consecutive decades (1960s-2010s).
“His performances never disappoint, and this June will be no exception,” Price said. “The OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino is the perfect place for Santana and his guitar skills. It is going to be a fantastic show!”
