Guitar maestro Carlos Santana will be performing in Durban for the first time as part of his Divination World Tour on April 13, and three lucky Mercury readers stand a chance to win double tickets to this fantastic concert (details below).
The show at the Durban ICC is presented by East Coast Radio and Big Concerts.
Santana, who first became famous in the late 1960s with his band Santana, pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. His first Top 10 hit ‘Evil Ways’ was on the Billboard chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics and Billboard number one albums ‘Abraxas’ (“Oye Como Va”, “Black Magic Woman”) and Santana III (“No One to Depend On”, “Everybody’s Everything”).
The Mexican-American has won 10 Grammy Awards including a record tying nine for a single project with 1999s blockbuster Supernatural (“Smooth”, “Maria, Maria”).
Among many honours, Santana received Billboard Latin Music Awards 2009 Lifetime Achievement honour as well as Billboard's Century Award in 1996.
Having sold more than 100 million records to date he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is listed in the top 20 greatest guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine.
Currently, he is headlining at a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
