Santana Staying in Las Vegas For Two More Years

After a 2-1/2 year residency at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel, Santana is switching venues with a new two-year deal at the House of Blues in Mandalay Bay.
The Los Angeles Times broke the story on Tuesday (dated Wednesday) on the new show, Greatest Hits Live: Santana - Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. The first show of the new run will be May 2 and the group is set to perform 80 shows per year at the venue.

The show is expected to be more intimate than his previous one as the House of Blues seats 1,500 versus the Hard Rock Hotel's 4,000. Carlos Santana also says that he wants to keep fresh with the possibility of guests coming in to play at a number of the shows.

Carlos told the Times "Tomorrow is the unknown, so how do you rehearse the unknown? To me, the unknown is inviting African musicians to join us, or Buddy Guy or Derek Trucks or Ben Harper, people from Phish, Warren Haynes — that's what 'Tomorrow' is bringing to the House of Blues."
