🔔 Dec 1-Dec 12: “SiriusXM Presents An Intimate Evening With Santana Greatest Hits Live”: Las Vegas, NV (33rd leg)

Note: The 33rd leg of the “Greatest Hits Live” shows in Las Vegas, NV is cancelled due to Carlos Santana’s health condition.

Quote from Santana.com (Dec 1, 2021): Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana has canceled all December 2021 dates of An Intimate Evening with Santana: Greatest Hits Live at the House of Blues stage inside Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino as he recovers from an unscheduled procedure. We look forward to returning to perform at the House Of Blues in January 2022.

Quote from Michael Vrionis (President of Universal Tone Management Dec 1, 2021): I regret to inform you that the Santana band has canceled the remaining December 2021 performances at The House of Blues in Las Vegas. Iconic band leader Carlos Santana had an unscheduled heart procedure that impacted his performance in Las Vegas. Carlos is doing fantastic and is anxious to be back on stage soon. He profoundly regrets that this ‘speed bump’ necessitated the cancellation of his upcoming performances. He is looking forward to seeing you all very soon.

Quotes from Carlos Santana (Las Vegas Review-Journal, Interview by Johnny Kats Jan 25, 2022):

Johnny Kats: I ask this every time we talk — how are you feeling? It’s usually more of a general question. But, really, how are you feeling, physically, right now?

Well, I am feeling great. I have a lot of energy. It’s a matter of regaining equilibrium, balance and confidence. The procedure that I had is very, very serious, and it sucked a lot of energy from me. I wouldn’t have been able to play that I’m used to, to present my music to people. I would get winded really, really quick. It’s a procedure that requires a lot of time. The body just doesn’t like it when somebody goes in there. But, fortunately, I have recuperated.

Johnny Kats: As I understand it, Cindy was on top of this immediately and made sure you were treated right away.

Yeah, it was 2:30 in the morning, and I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. So I said to Cindy, ‘I think we need to go to a hospital, something doesn’t feel right.’ I hardly finished saying it, and we were in the car on the way to the hospital.

Johnny Kats: This was a serious, emergency situation, right?

When they drew blood to see what was happening, sure enough, we caught it just in time. I think it was 94 percent blockage in one artery. We corrected it, and the other one was 35 percent blocked, another one was 5 percent. Those can be corrected, and will be corrected, with medicine. But the one, they had to go in there with like a cord to keep making things flow. A stent is what it was.
