Santana attracted a full house of enthusiastic fans of all ages.
Carlos Santana greeted the Hong Kong audience with the statement that he had enjoyed every visit to Hong Kong since he held his first concert here in 1973 . He went on to ask the audience to go and spread kindness and compassion and make the girls in their lives happy: mothers, wives, girlfriends, daughters – and he hoped he would make everyone happy with his music.
All members of the band were soloists in their own right and they went on to prove this throughout the evening: The trumpet and the trombone-players as well as the three drummers. There were three drum sets on stage, including bongo drums, and the drum solos were outstanding.
The excellent vocalists inspired the audience to jump up and dance to tunes like Mariah.
Carlos Santana had 8 guitars on stage which he changed constantly and he played his solos with a passion and a skill which would be hard to find anywhere else in the world.
The screen at the back of the stage showed footage of former concerts mixed with live shots.
A fantastic night out for fans of Santana at the Asia World Expo Centre at Chep Lap Kok!
