ROD STEWART AND SANTANA: THE VOICE, THE GUITAR, THE SONGS


AEG Live announced today that Rod Stewart and Santana,two of music’s most influential hit makers and dynamic live performers, will join forces and embarkon an 18-concert North American tour this summer. The tour
unites two musical trailblazers who have helped redefine the sound of popular music for the last
five decades through their combined love of rock, soul, world rhythms, funk, jazz and blues. Both
Stewart and Santana are known for their high-energy, hit-packed live concerts -- making the
combination an incomparable experience for all music fans. 

With his singular voice, narrative songwriting and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has
built one of the most successful and enduring music careers of all time. In a career spanning more
than five decades, he has amassed sales of more than 150 million albums worldwide and has
countless chart-topping hits and industry accolades - including two inductions into the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame. In 2007, he was bestowed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the
Queen of England. In May 2013, Stewart released Time, his first rock album in a dozen years, on
Capitol Records. The album features 11 original tracks and marks Rod’s return to songwriting after
nearly two decades. Time entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a new British record for
the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist -- and in the US, it marked Stewart’s
highest-charting album of original material since 1979. In addition to touring, Stewart headlines
one of Las Vegas’ most critically and commercially successful residencies at The Colosseum at
Caesars Palace.

For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and
reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten
GRAMMY ® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY ® Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs
for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for
“Smooth”). He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), and received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime
Achievement honor (2009). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by
Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Celebrating the chart
debut of Guitar Heaven (Arista) in 2010, Santana joined the ranks of the Rolling Stones as the only
musical act in chart history to score at least one Top 10 album in every decade beginning with the
1960s. He is also currently headlining at a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay
Resort in Las Vegas. In 2013, Carlos Santana was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center
Honors Award. Santana’s new album CORAZÓN (RCA/Sony Latin Iberia) due out May 6, 2014 is a
collaborative effort with the biggest names in Latin music.
