This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Woodstock Music Festival and one of the artists that performed there so many years ago is heading out on the road to celebrate that and another pivotal anniversary in his career. Read on.
The Press Release:
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Carlos Santana has announced he will hit the road with his band across North America this summer for the Supernatural Now tour. The three-month, 29-date celebration will commemorate two of the most important milestones in the iconic guitarist’s career: the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking, multiple Grammy-winning album Supernatural and the 50th anniversary of his momentous performance at Woodstock.
Produced by Live Nation, the Supernatural Now tour begins on June 22 at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ, and will make stops in Dallas, Chicago, Toronto, and more before it concludes on August 25 at the Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning January 25 at LiveNation.com.
Critically-acclaimed rock band The Doobie Brothers, who have sold more than 48 million albums and won four GRAMMY® Awards, will appear on all dates. The band is known for their roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven rock and roll set.
Reflecting on the cosmic significance of both anniversaries occurring in the same year, Santana says, “Both were monumental moments in my life. Woodstock and Supernatural took me to places I never dreamed were possible. I embraced those incredible moments in my life with all my heart. Both were supreme lessons in maintaining focus, heart and integrity in every step every day and to strive to better oneself with a high standard on and off the stage. I cannot think of these two moments without thinking about Mr. Bill Graham and Mr. Clive Davis. They are two of many angels in my life that helped shape my career.” Continue reading Santana Announces The “Supernatural Now” Tour→

Back in November, I shared the news about the Pledge campaign and forthcoming album by a new supergroup known as The Three Tremors. If you’d like to check that item out just click HERE. Now, I’ve returned to the group as a topic as they have recently announced their first ever US Headlining tour. Check out the full press release and dates down below.
The Press Release:
It’s not every day that metalheads get the opportunity to witness three of metal’s finest vocalists on the same concert stage – Tim “Ripper” Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, DIO DISCIPLES), Harry “The Tyrant” Conklin (JAG PANZER, SATAN’S HOST, TITAN FORCE), and Sean “The Hell Destroyer” Peck (CAGE, DENNER/SHERMANN, DEATH DEALER). But soon, US fans will get their chance, when the Three Tremors launch their first-ever US tour in support of their self-titled debut – running from February through March 2019 (kicking off on February 14 at El Corazon in Seattle, and wrapping up on March 11 at The Crafthouse Stage & Grill in Pittsburgh).
