Carlos Santana Postpones 6 Shows ‘Out of An Abundance of Caution’ For His ‘Health’
Due to “an excess of caution” for the artist’s health, Carlos Santana’s management organization announced late Friday that the 74-year-old guitar icon will postpone his next six shows.
The announcement from Michael Vrionis, president of Universal Tone Management, began, “I hate to inform you that the Santana band has postponed tonight’s event at Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville, In..” The July 9 Riverbend Music Center show in Cincinnati, Ohio; July 10 American Family Insurance Amphitheater — Summerfest Grounds in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
July 12 Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion; July 15 Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas, Texas; and July 16 Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Woodlands, Texas have been postponed. Rest is advised by doctors so that Mr. Santana can fully recover.
At Pine Knob Music Theatre (previously DTE Energy Music Theatre), an outdoor amphitheater located about 40 miles northwest of Detroit on Tuesday night, the guitar great slumped onstage, according to several reports from the area.
That night, Santana’s manager informed him that he had been suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration. “Carlos is doing well and is eager to return to the stage as soon as possible.
Just some quiet time to himself,” Vrionis stated in a prepared statement. “Carlos Santana deeply regrets these postponements of his upcoming performances; but, his health is our number one priority. He can’t wait to meet all of his admirers in person soon.
