Finally, I've been waiting a long time for this one.  Santana and Doobie Brothers in concert at the Xcel Energy Center, August 3rd (Saturday).

It's Santana's "Supernatural" tour 20 years after the release of his "Supernatural" CD and 50 years since his epic performance at Woodstock.

Santana has been at the top of my bucket list for years and it's finally going to happen. Tickets go on sale a week from this Friday, Jan 25th and I assume they will go fast. Of course the Loon will be giving away some tickets before the show.

Just from the videos I've seen and word of mouth from friends, Santana puts on an unbelievably great performance. Some have said, it's the best concert they have ever seen.

The Doobie Brothers will be opening all shows on the tour and, as always, they will not disappoint. This is just such a great combination of talent coming to the Xcel and I hope to see you there.  I'll be the guy with the big goofy grin on my face.
