Carlos Santana back on tour after stage collapse

Carlos Santana is back on the road.

The legendary rocker returned to the Connecticut stage on Friday after collapsing during a show in Michigan last month.

The respected guitarist, 75, was photographed laughing as he left the Four Seasons in downtown Manhattan last week and later took the stage in CT, followed by a show at the Jones Beach Amphitheater in Long Island, New York.

Santana was forced to move six shows of his “Miraculous Supernatural” 2022 Tour with Earth, Wind & Fire “out of an abundance of caution for [his] health,” the musician’s representative told Vidak For Congress last month.

Michael Vrionis, president of Universal Tone Management, also released a statement at the time.

“I’m sorry to inform you that the Santana band has postponed tonight’s show at Ruoff Music Center Noblesville, Indiana,” he said.

“And we’re postponing the July 9 show at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio; July 10 at American Family Insurance Amphitheater – Summerfest Grounds in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; July 12 at Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rogers, Arkansas; July 15 at the Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas, Texas; July 16 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Woodlands, Texas.”

Vrionis added: ‘The doctors have recommended that Mr. Santana rest to make a full recovery. Carlos is doing well and is eager to get back on the podium soon. He just needs rest.

“Santana deeply regrets this postponement of his upcoming performances; but his health is our greatest concern. He is looking forward to seeing all his fans soon.”

The iconic rocker was transported from the stage on a stretcher during his show on July 5 after being overcome by heat exhaustion and dehydration.

He previously took a break from touring in 2021 when he underwent heart surgery.
