Santana Books 2017 ‘Transmogrify Tour’

Anywhere you want to go, there’s a good chance Santana is headed there too. After touring North America and Europe this year, the band’s 2017 calendar is starting to fill up with dates in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. And don’t forget about the Las Vegas residency.

A poster for the “Transmogrify” Australia tour declares “Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Destination.”

Santana plans to treat fans to a setlist featuring songs from throughout the band’s career, which spans nearly 50 years. The group last played Australia with The Steve Miller Band, following a 2011 headline tour.
