The two bands, which first toured together in 1974 and are both Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, are re-teaming for a summer tour
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Santana and Earth, Wind & Fire are teaming up for a joint summer tour that comes 46 years after they first joined forces for a 1974 tour of Europe. Dubbed the Miraculous Supernatural 2020 Tour, it will mark the first time the two bands have shared the stage in the United States.
Their 2020 concert trek will open June 19 at Chula Vista’s North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre, just south of San Diego, and conclude Aug. 29 at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. All dates and cities appear below, along with ticket information.
“It is a great joy and honor to co-share music with the magnificent elements of Earth, Wind & Fire. We look forward to delight, joy and ecstasy!” said Santana’s leader and namesake, Carlos Santana, in a statement issued Tuesday morning.
The Chula Vista venue where the tour will begin is barely 5 miles from the Mexican border city of Tijuana, where he came of musical age as a teenager playing in nightclubs and strip bars. In 1969, after moving to San Francisco, Carlos Santana led his band at the famed Woodstock festival in upstate New York.
Santana and his band were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, two years before the 2000 induction of the groundbreaking R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire.
