Big Concerts is pleased to announce that Johnny Clegg will join Santana as a very special guest at his Johannesburg concert on Saturday 1st March 2014 at FNB Stadium Johannesburg.
Johnny Clegg needs no introduction. The Lancashire native formed the country’s first multi-racial band, Jaluka, along with Sipho Mchunu in 1969. The group dispersed in 1985 but Clegg formed a second band, Savuka, whose debut album, ‘Third World’, sold over two million copies. Their subsequent album, ‘Shadow Man’ marked the beginning of their world tour where they opened for Steve Winwood as well as George Michael. Savuka’s fourth album, ‘Heat, Dust and Dreams’ garnered the band a Grammy nomination as well as a Billboard music award for the best world music album.
Carlos Santana, who first became famous in the late 1960s with his band Santana, pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. His first Top 10 hit ‘Evil Ways’ stayed on the Billboard chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics and Billboard number one albums ‘Abraxas’ (“Oye Como Va”, “Black Magic Woman”) and Santana III (“No One to Depend On”, “Everybody’s Everything”). To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards including a record tying nine for a single project with 1999’s blockbuster Supernatural (“Smooth”, “Maria, Maria”, “Wishing It Was”) which featured many tracks co-written by guest stars such as Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20, Eric Clapton, Lauryn Hill and others.
From Santana’s earliest days as a ground breaking Afro-Latin blues rock outfit to the mega chart topping collaboration of ‘Supernatural’. The sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world’s best known musical signatures. Don’t miss the chance to see these legends perform live in South Africa with special guest Johnny Clegg.
