Santana To Embark On Summer Trek Through North America

Veteran Latin-rock band that dominated last week's Grammys will wrap tour Aug. 22 in Minneapolis.

Latin-rock sensations Santana will hit North American arenas in the summer as part of a world tour behind their multiplatinum smash LP, Supernatural.

On the road in Europe through mid-June, the band will return to the States for a July 20 show at the Coral Sky Pavilion in West Palm Beach, Fla., and roam North America through August. The tour will wrap on Aug. 22 in Minneapolis, according to a band spokesperson.

Marking a phenomenal comeback for the band, Supernatural has sold more than 6.5 million copies, becoming the top-selling album by a Latin artist ever, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

The album also dominated last week's Grammy Awards, generating nine honors, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for the single "Smooth" (RealAudio excerpt). The album's "Maria Maria" (RealAudio excerpt) won Best Pop Duo or Group With Vocal.
