All week win tickets to see Santana On Sunday, June 15th Bethel Woods NY


SANTANA RETURNS TO BETHEL WOODS AS PART OF 45TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF THE WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL
Comes Back to the Garden On Sunday, June 15

 

BETHEL, NY – As part of Bethel Woods' season-long celebration of the 45th Anniversary of the Woodstock festival, music legend, Santana will come back to the garden for the second time since their legendary performance on Saturday, August 16, 1969. The Latin music-influenced, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted rock band returns to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sunday, June at 15 at 7:30 p.m.


Tickets go on-sale NOW: at www.BethelWoodsCenter.org, Ticketmaster or by phone at 1.800.745.3000. Tickets are $61.00, $91.50 and $127.00 for reserved tickets, and $36.00 for general admission lawn. All-in ticket prices show at a glance exactly what you will pay for your ticket, including standard shipping.

During Santana's 2010 performance at Bethel Woods, Carlos Santana said, "This is ground zero for peace and love. This is the place where miracles keep happening."

Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world's best-known musical signatures. For more than four decades—from Santana's earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion outfit in San Francisco—Carlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries.

Long before the category now known as “world music” was named, Santana's ever-evolving sound was always ahead of its time in its universal appeal, and today registers as ideally in sync with the 21st century’s pan-cultural landscape. And, with a dedication to humanitarian outreach and social activism that parallels his lifelong relationship with music, Carlos Santana is as much an exemplary world citizen as a global music icon.

Santana's star arrived in the era-defining late 1960s San Francisco Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and other storied venues. The group emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at the Woodstock festival in 1969, the same year that its self-titled debut LP Santana came out. Introducing Santana's first Top 10 hit, “Evil Ways,” the disc stayed on Billboard’s album chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics — and Billboard #1 albums — Abraxas and Santana III.

Ever since, for more than forty years and almost 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 10 GRAMMY® Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”). In 1998, the group was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whose website notes, “Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rock’s true virtuosos and guiding lights.”

Among many other honors, Carlos Santana received Billboard Latin Music Awards’ 2009 Lifetime Achievement honor, and, he was bestowed Billboard’s Century Award in 1996. He has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on the magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”—“Santana's crystalline tone and clean arcing sustain make him the rare instrumentalist who can be identified in just one note.” And, with the 2010 release of Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time¬, Santana joined the Rolling Stones as one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album in each decade from the 1960s on.

Santana’s last album, Shape Shifter (2012) was the first for his new label, Starfaith Records and debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200. The 13-song set is an instrumental tour de force long awaited by fans (only one song features vocals, by Santana’s lead vocalists Andy Vargas and Tony Lindsay).

Beyond music, in the lifestyle and entertainment realm, River Of Colors (ROC) has enjoyed tremendous success with the Carlos by Carlos Santana and Unity by Carlos Santana brand names. Founded in 1997, ROC is dedicated to bringing products to market that embody the passion and integrity of Carlos Santana—and that are true to his distinctive style and taste. ROC’s endeavors encompass products including shoes, handbags, headwear and sparkling wine, as well as signature musical instruments including electric guitars and hand percussion instruments. ROC products are distributed at better retail stores internationally. For more information, visit www.santana.com
