’70s rockers Santana and The Allman Brothers Band are in the midst of a six-date co-headlining tour across the Northeast. The tour, which kicked off on Sunday in New York, will come to an end on Monday, July 30th at Merriweather Post Pavilion.
While both bands are no strangers to the world of touring, these concerts mark the first time Santana and The Allman Brothers are sharing the stage. Previously, the jam bands had only performed on the same stage during music festivals. The two groups will swap closing spots throughout the duration of the tour.
This tour outing can be added to the list of 2012 highlights for each band: The Allman Brothers Band received a Lifetime Achievement Award during the Grammys in February, while Santana’s new album Shape Shifter debuted at #16 on the Billboard Charts upon its release in May.
No doubt that Santana and The Allman Brothers will be an incredible show, but for this giveaway, we want you to tell us another two bands that you would love to see tour together.
I’m going to go with the Pixies and Radiohead. (I didn’t say it had to be realistic!)
The winner will be chosen at noon on Friday, June 27th.
