Santana to Take On The Las Vegas House of Blues in September
For more than 40 years, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Carlos Santana and his band have amazed the public with their melodic, bluesy music with influences from Latin America. The multi-Grammy award-winning group has worked with some of the most well known names in music. Their latest album is a record filled with collaborations with the likes of Miguel, Juanes, Pitbull, and Gloria Estefan, and currently on their album-promoting tour, with stops across the US and Europe.
Unlike previous albums, the songs on Corazon are strictly Latino. In the past, Santana would include a mix of Spanish and English tunes, composing duets with artists from various genres, so having a Latin-themed album is a first for the band. The Corazon Tour opened on March 7 in Miami’s Doral Golf Resort and Spa, and from there, they worked their way across the Southern states and then made a leap to Texas. After a three-month pause in the tour, they made their way across Europe in June and July, and will return to the US in August. In September, the band will fulfill their residency at The House of Blues, Mandalay Bay in Sin City.
Since its opening in 1999, the House of Blues in Mandalay Bay has seen a horde of extraordinary talent, with returning artists including Michael Bolton, Taking Back Sunday, and a variety of hip hop greats including Common and Nas. One of the most sought after music venues in the city, the House of Blues offers a unique experience that allows music fans to get up close and personal with their idols. An intimate evening with Santana is perhaps the best way to engage with their craft. They’re set to perform in the House of Blues from September 16 to 27.
Live music has become a crucial part of Mandalay Bay’s spectrum of entertainment, reeling in artists from the four corners to share their unique sound with casino-goers. Promoting these live shows were a way to expand non-gaming revenue so that providers can capitalize gains on all fronts. Having a grandeur of services is that name of the game according to InterCasino, and now the public get to enjoy acts of the stature of Santana on a regular basis at the Mandalay, and other casinos along the Strip.
