Carlos Santana invaded Tampa Bay with his soulful guitar skills and Latin flavor.
The crowd packed into a lower bowl show at the Amalie Arena and swayed to every tune played. After the first few songs, Santana told the crowd that he was there for a few hours to take all their worries away and forget about all the sh** going on in the world. Let’s enjoy the night, he yelled while crowds cheered him on to his next tune.
Watching him play, it’s hard to believe that he is indeed 70-year-old. He to this day remains to be one of the most aggressive guitar players in the music industry. In every song, you’re reminded he’s still got it as he tears through a solo or slows things down with his soulful pure notes. Clearly, no one plays like Carlos Santana.
