Concert video featuring Santana's 1982 US Festival set due out in September
A new home video documenting Santana's full set at the 1982 US Festival in San Bernardino, California will be released on multiple formats on September 6, two days after the concert's 37th anniversary.
Santana: Live at US Festival, which will be available on DVD and Blu-ray, features the Latin-rock legends playing classic songs like "Black Magic Woman," "Oye Como Va" and "Jingo Lo Ba," as well as their then-recent top-20 hit "Hold On" and a cover of The Zombies' "She's Not There." The band's set also included a rendition of the 1970 instrumental "Incident at Neshabur" that featured a guest appearance from acclaimed jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock.
In addition, the video features interviews segments with guitarist Carlos Santana interspersed between the performances.
The Live at US Festival DVD and Blu-ray also boasts some bonus features, including additional interview clips with Carlos reflecting on his career, his signature guitar sound, the theory behind his music and more.
The US Festival was conceived and funded by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of the Apple computer company. Santana performed during the second day of the three-day extravaganza, which took place during the 1982 Labor Day weekend. Other acts on the bill that day included Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, The Kinks, The Cars, Pat Benatar, Eddie Money and Dave Edmunds.
