"I'm delighted to be going on the road with George Lopez ," said Carlos Santana. "Besides giving me the chance to perform alongside a dear friend, these shows take me back to the grand old Bill Graham days, when different kinds of entertainment were featured on the same bill. Divine Rascals will be a joyous experience."
Carlos and the Santana Band will perform classics from the group's four-decades-long career, and spotlight songs from Santana's latest album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time. With its release, Santana joined The Rolling Stones as one of only two music acts in Billboard chart history to score at least one Top Ten album in each decade from the 1960s through the present.
One of the entertainment industry's premier comedic talents, George Lopez's standup artistry has been featured in two HBO Comedy Specials, most recently 2009's Tall, Dark & Chicano. Currently the host of Lopez Tonight, Lopez is a multi-talented entertainer whose career encompasses television, film, and live performance. His groundbreaking sitcom George Lopez ran for six seasons on ABC, and remains a hit in syndication. Most recently, he voiced the character Rafael in the animated blockbuster, Rio.
The Divine Rascals dates are scheduled during Santana's coast-to-coast, North American (SOCC) Sound of Collective Consciousness Tour, which kicks off August 25th in Seattle and wraps in Palm Springs on September 30th. Tour dates will feature special guest Michael Franti & Spearhead.
