Santana goes full hack: “Resident Artist” in Vegas

LEGENDARY GUITARIST CARLOS SANTANA LAUNCHES FIRST ROCK RESIDENCY

SHOW IN LAS VEGAS AT THE JOINT AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO</a>

April 1, 2009 (Las Vegas, NV)- Signing on as the first rock and roll resident artist in Las Vegas, Carlos Santana brings his legendary talent to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino through a multi-year deal with AEG Live. Through 2010, The Joint will be the only place west of the Mississippi where fans can see Santana perform. Titled to pay homage to his most successful body of work to date, Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through the Hits debuts on Wednesday May 27 and features the artist’s signature fusion sound in a show designed exclusively for the new venue.

“It is a great honor for Santana to be the first resident performer at the new Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Because I still live the principles of the 1960s, and because I’m a hippie at heart, “A Trip Through The Hits” is designed to bring everyone in the audience together as one,” said Carlos Santana. “I invite you to join our experience–we’ll mix up a little practical spirituality with a rebel-from-the-street vibe, and with lots of incredible music. My wish is for it to be a night that will move you to dance, to cry, to laugh and to feel the totality and fullness of being alive.”

Santana will play approximately 36 shows per year at The Joint, with a show time of 9 p.m. Tickets for performances through September go on-sale Wednesday, April 1. Prices range from $79-$299 and can be purchased at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800-745-3000. </em>
