April 20 Fri: Oakland, CA
Note from Deborah Santana (Space Between The Stars. My Journey To An Open Heart 2005): After a talk with Sri Chinmoy at the New York Meditation Center, Carlos Santana asks Deborah Sara King to marry him. (p219) The wedding ceremony takes place at Deborah King’s uncle house on Dover Street, Oakland, CA on April 20. (p223) Carlos Santana’s parents aren't invited to the ceremony, and are only informed of the wedding on the following Monday. (p226)
Quote from Carlos Santana (The Universal Tone 2014): Deborah quickly told her parents, and not long after we got back to San Francisco, on April 20, 1973, we got together at City Hall to sign the forms. Then we held a small ceremony and reception in Oakland, at SK’s brother house---he was a preacher, and he married us, too. (…) In fact, I didn’t invite anybody when I got married---no one. No family and no friends. (…) The hassle that I wanted to avoid was my mom---we were probably farther apart then than we had ever been, and we had not seen each other for a while. (…) When we had our second wedding in Queens with Sri Chinmoy, another very simple and unpretentious ceremony, Deborah persuaded me to invite my family. (…) I’d never seen my mom so hurt; I’d never seen her react that way. (p342-343)

Note: Recording of "Flame-Sky" (from "Welcome").
Quote from Carlos Santana (The Universal Tone 2014): The title comes from something Sri said when I played him the song. “You’re such good boys, you and John”---he said that endearingly about us. “If you could only see how you affect the audience---both of you inflame their hearts to aspire again to be one with God.” (p345)
May 18 Fri: Community Center Theatre, Berkeley, CA
Note: Carlos Santana plays a concert of spiritual music at a "Sri Chinmoy" movie presentation.

July 15 Sun: The Lee Theatre, Hong Kong
Quote from Ron Cuskelly & Patrick Stansfield (http://www.adastron.com/lockheed/electra/santana-electra.htm): During the layover in Hong Kong the weather deteriorated into a full blown typhoon. The Star ferry, funicular railway, and electric trams ceased to operate. Heavy storm shutters blocked all shop windows and even the Lee Garden Hotel battened down hatches. Everything essentially was shut for two solid days. We had nothing to do but hang and drink. There being no hangar space available to shelter N42FM, it was decided to move her to Manila out of harm's way. Consequently she took off prior to the Typhoon arriving in Hong Kong. We did the shows at the old Lee Garden Theatre and audiences as I recall were so unused to Western Pop Culture that when the set was finished and Carlos walked offstage there was only silence. Carlos was somewhat puzzled and asked the promoter did they like the show? The promoter, Arthur Oh, had a few of his lads "start" the applause in the house and it rippled like wildfire through the audience. The problem did not re-occur at the second show as the audience had already been briefed and the starters were in place to "cue" the fans!
July 16 Mon: The Lee Theatre, Hong Kong
July 18 Wed: Jakarta, Indonesia
Note: Cancelled show.
Quote from Ron Cuskelly & Patrick Stansfield (http://www.adastron.com/lockheed/electra/santana-electra.htm): I do believe the typhoon delayed the departure and resulted in the cancellation of the show in Jakarta. I do not recall landing the aircraft or doing a performance there at all.

Aug 7 Tue: Civic Theatre, Auckland, New Zealand
Quote from Ron Cuskelly & Patrick Stansfield (http://www.adastron.com/lockheed/electra/santana-electra.htm): Here the show played the Civic Theatre in downtown Auckland. Long since demolished, it featured a Venetian Gondola Orchestra platform that raised from the pit to stage level on hydraulic riser tubes. In it's lowered position it served as the Band Stage for an elaborate Dance Hall / Night Club with a grand Venetian setting and decor. The load-in was down the main aisle of the upper theatre and across a scaffolding bridge over the void between the theatre balcony front row and the stage lip; as the night club floor lay twenty odd foot below it was totally out of sight line up to the main stage! The audience sat in the "Balcony" and by the way, the planks on top of the load-in bridge were removed for onstage security!
Aug 8 Wed: Town Hall, Christchurch, New Zealand
Quote from Ron Cuskelly & Patrick Stansfield (http://www.adastron.com/lockheed/electra/santana-electra.htm): The show was performed at the modern and lively, though petite Town Hall.

Quote from Carlos Santana (The Universal Tone 2014): People could taste our intention and feel what we had to offer on a spiritual level. Dipti Nivas stayed popular for a long time. (p360)
