The Allman Brothers and Santana - Two legendary groups who have influenced generations of blues rockers and jam bands are teaming up to share the stage at Jones Beach! http://SANTANA.jonesbeach.com
"It is a delight and an honor to finally share the stage, and the music, with Gregg Allman, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes and The Allman Brothers Band," says Carlos Santana. "This is something that we've hoped to make happen for many years." These special concerts follow the first leg of U.S. dates on Santana's Shape Shifter Tour 2012. Previously, Santana and The Allman Brothers have only intersected at major festivals. On touring together, Gregg Allman says, "We've all looked forward to doing this for a very long time." The Allman Brothers Band line-up includes Gregg Allman (vocals and keyboards), Butch Trucks (drums, tympani), Jaimoe (drums), Warren Haynes (vocals, lead and slide guitar), Derek Trucks (slide and lead guitar), Oteil Burbridge (bass), and Marc Quinones (congas and percussion). Earlier this year, the group was honored with a special GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award.
Santana's tour dates with The Allman Brothers follow the May 15, 2012 release of Shape Shifter, their latest album--and the first for Carlos Santana's new label Starfaith Records.
This news comes just days after Gregg Allman postponed his book tour due to diagnostic cardiac testing stemming from his hernia operation. Allman’s memoirs, My Cross To Bear, hits bookstores today. However, he has already rescheduled that tour – which just involves book signings, not performances. The book tour starts May 8 in Atlanta.
