Santana: Transmogrify Tour 2017
The reunion is over but the party will continue all summer long when Carlos Santana launches a new tour June 23.

Santana, who will celebrate his 70th birthday July 20, performed last year with the original 1969 lineup that churned out memorable hits like "Evil Ways," "Black Magic Woman" and "Oye Como Va." They had reunited to record their fourth album together—the guitar whiz's 23rd overall—"Santana IV," released last spring. A commemorative live album, "Santana IV: Live at the House of Blues, Las Vegas," came out in October.

The Transmogrify Tour follows Santana's 2016 reunion with his classic lineup, though the upcoming trek will not feature keyboardist and singer Gregg Rolie, guitarist Neal Schon, percussionist Michael Carabello and drummer Michael Shrieve. Last year, that group played a handful of shows and released a live album and a new studio effort, Santana IV.
