Santana cancels Charlotte show in favor of Raleigh

Guitarist Carlos Santana announced summer dates a while ago which, at the time, included a stop at Charlotte's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on Wednesday, July 28. That show was canceled last week, and now Santana is coming to Raleigh instead.

Steve Winwood will open for Santana when he plays the Walnut Creek Amphitheater on July 28. Tickets for the show will go on sale on Friday, June 4 at 10 a.m. here for $34 to $84.50.

It's unclear why the show was moved. It certainly doesn't seem to be a routing issue, unless the drive from Virginia Beach to Charlotte was too much. Tickets sales could have been slow in Charlotte. Whatever the reason for the move, it's certainly a good thing for Triangle fans.

Santana's latest album of new material is 2005's That I Am, featuring his usual parade of guest vocalists including Steven Tyler and Will.i.am. In 2009, Santana's set from Woodstock in 1969 was released as a part of a box set called The Woodstock Experience.
