Carlos Santana postpones Walmart AMP concert



Little Rock, Arkansas — After collapsing on stage during a concert on Tuesday, Carlos Santana has postponed his next six shows, temporarily stepping away from the stage “out of an abundance of caution for the artist’s health.”

According to Michael Vrionis, Santana’s manager, July concerts in Noblesville, Indiana; Cincinnati, Ohio; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Rogers, Arkansas; Dallas, Texas; and Woodlands, Texas, have been pushed back.

“Carlos is doing well and is anxious to be back on stage soon. He just needs rest,” Vrionis said. “Doctors have recommended that Mr. Santana gets rest to recuperate fully.”

Live Nation will be announcing the rescheduled show dates. All shows as planned beginning July 23 in Paso Robles, California, through the end of 2022 are still confirmed and will be performed as scheduled.

The legendary guitarist was taken to a hospital on Tuesday, after suffering heat exhaustion and dehydration while performing at Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkston, some 40 miles northwest of Detroit.
