Carlos Santana recovering from unscheduled heart procedure

Carlos Santana is recovering from unscheduled heart procedure.

“Just wanted to share with you some clarity with specificity what’s been going on with my physicality,” says Santana in a personal video message. “There’s been rumors flying around here and there about this and that. So, I’m here to just crystallize and make it clear. Last Saturday I had an incident where I asked my wife Cindy to take me to the hospital ’cause I had this thing happening in my chest.

“So, when we went there we found out that I needed to take care of it. So I am, and so I’m going to be taking time out for a little bit to make sure I replenish and I rest and catch up with my health so that when I play for you, I would play the way I’m used to and give you 150 percent. I wouldn’t show up unless I can do that.

“So other than that,”
he adds, “I hope you and your family are enjoying good health, peace of mind, and joy. I know I will. Thank you for being a fan, and your oneness, and your caring. Peace.”

Santana’s health issue has resulted in the cancellation of all December 2021 dates of “An Intimate Evening with Santana: Greatest Hits Live” at the House of Blues stage inside Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, which was set to resume this week.

“Carlos is doing fantastic and is anxious to be back on stage soon,” explains Michael Vrionis, President, Universal Tone Management. “He profoundly regrets that this ‘speed bump’ necessitated the cancellation of his upcoming performances. He is looking forward to seeing you all very soon.”

The Las Vegas series is currently scheduled to resume in late January.

Santana released his latest album, “Blessings And Miracles”, in October.
