Iconic guitarist Carlos Santana has canceled all of his upcoming December 2021 dates for An Intimate Evening with Santana: Greatest Hits Live at the House of Blues Las Vegas. The musician cited an unscheduled heart procedure as the reason for his laying down his ax for the month.

Michael Vrionis, President of Universal Tone Management, wrote in a press release: “I regret to inform you that the Santana band has canceled the remaining December 2021 performances at The House of Blues in Las Vegas. Iconic band leader Carlos Santana had an unscheduled heart procedure that impacted his performance in Las Vegas. Carlos is doing fantastic and is anxious to be back on stage soon. He profoundly regrets that this ‘speed bump’ necessitated the cancellation of his upcoming performances. He is looking forward to seeing you all very soon.”
