After years of avoiding seeing Santana in Las Vegas I attended the Sat and Sun shows. An energetic tight house band.Both shows had the same set, different rotation. The first 45 minutes was Supernatural rehash.Incident was refreshing to hear twice.Cindy's drumming was the best suprise, very impressive. Karl and Benny are the main supporting cast. Vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar, congas are average even weak to times past.Many chants, lyrics praising Carlos. A Carlos impersonator even attended chatting, taking photos, hugs, etc., strange.Definitely a "hits, popular, radio friendly" show. A tight house band not living or playing to their abilities or potential.After not seeing the band for years it was nice yet predictable and disappointing compared to decades past. It could have been much more deeper, inspiring.
