Michael & Spearhead will be joining music legend Carlos Santana and The Santana Band on Santana's Sound of Collective Consciousness Tour this summer. The tour launches August 25th in Seattle with a concert at the White River Amphitheater. SOCC tour highlights include stops in Vancouver, San Antonio, San Diego, and Reno.
"It's not often you get to meet one of your heroes, let alone go on tour with one. Carlos' music has always been about the inclusion of all peoples and cultures. He has inspired millions around the world, including me, to seek their highest good. To be honest, I can't think of a better party for the body and soul than a Santana-Spearhead concert," says Franti.
