Excellent show! Top notch band. Great sound system as always at Ravinia! He did an amazing performance! First time seeing him. It was on my bucket list. Loved him since Woodstock. He is phenomenal. Only one frustration, Carlos had his back to the crowd a lot, which hampered us seeing his amazing guitar 🎸 work. I don't understand it. That was frustrating.

3.0 star rating R Ross from Fort Myers, Florida


Hertz Arena parking entry needs major overhaul. We missed the first half hour of the concert due to major traffic getting into the parking. Only one parking attendant taking parking fees for a sold out crowd. Lanes narrowing into one instead of having more attendants. Santana was a 5* but Hertz was a 1*

3.0 star rating Tony Mc from Houston, Texas


Santana was great for about 40 minutes - then devolved into very mediocre cover band losing the classic Latin sound that they are know for. Could have been any concert, anywhere - disappointing.

3.0 star rating from Houston, Texas


I was not happy with this concert. He had his back most of the time to the audience. I wanted to see him and him playing. I was disappointed when his didn't even finish his last song and didn't come back for just one more song. I really love him, I've been going to see him for years. But, I paid a lot of money to see his back. Very disappointiing.

2.0 star rating Sherry from Las Vegas, Nevada


The instrumental was terrific. My issue was that I paid a lot of money to hear a tribute band. Santana rarely got off his stool and when he did, it would have been challenging to sign as he had a wad of chewing gum in his mouth. He did not face the audience so we spent most of the night looking at his backside or side of his face. I was looking forward to this concert, unfortunately it was disappointing.

1.0 star rating Sylvia K from Toronto, Ontario


I have never attended a concert in my long life where the lead was entirely absent from his/her own show, ... which was tragically the state of affairs at the Budweiser stage in Toronto the other night. The focus of the jumbo screens was all over the vocalists, pianist and percussionist and not at all on Santana for good reason. His lacking participation in his own concert was more like a bassist in the back ground. Concerts are SO expensive these days one would hope that if you no longer have it together to put on a worthwhile show than do your fans a favour and politely bow out so they can at least save their hard earned money and remember you as the super star you once were rather than now thinking about you as an ego that doesn't know when to call it quits.
