Carlos Santana - Doobie Brothers Tour
« on: 13 Jul 2019, 03:09 pm »
Last night, I had the privilege of attending Carlos Santana's and the Doobie Brothers' recent tour, as it came to the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater, just west of St. Louis.

It was a fantastic show! All of these ol’ farts could really rock, and they gave their all. No holding back. It was inspiring. Particularly, Carlos Santana at 71 years old. He has a strong presence, and he
delivered his music and concert production, literally, as a “spiritual" service. It was very inspiring, and gave me great cause to reflect... repeatedly.

The Doobie Brothers just starting touring again only a couple of years back. Touring with them, they now have the legendary Bill Payne on keyboards. He is one of the greatest rock keyboardists ever…
as an original founding member of Little Feat!

Carlos Santana is celebrating both the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock as well as the 20th Anniversary of his smash record, “Supernatural." His band is full of world-class musicians, and he graciously brought the Doobie Brothers on stage
to play an extended jam that included covers from John Lee Hooker, ZZTop, the Temptations, WAR, old Santana and more. The night's finalé included Earth, Wind and Fire’s “September.” WOW!

Recommended!

The last time I saw Santana was 45 years ago, opening for Clapton, and the year before with John McLaughlin. Listening to recent live recordings it's clear that he still has the fire, glad you enjoyed he show!

Great groups. I have seen both but it was back in the 1970's. I will see them again if I have the chance. I just finished transferring part of my vinyl collection to digital. The Captain and Me stood out and a all around excellent album.

Saw Santana a few months ago in at outdoor show in Northern MS just across border from Memphis, it was outstanding! Mix of old and current tunes.

Thanks for the recap.  I wish I could have gone.

I did wonder how many original members would be with TDB and how they would sound.
