THE UK's leading Latin rock tribute will play Darlington Hippodrome next month.

Oye Santana, UK No.1 Winner at the 2018 National Tribute Music Awards, will be performing on Saturday, June 8 as part of a 50-date UK tour celebrating 50 years since the Woodstock Festival, where an electrifying performance catapulted Santana to stardom.

The six-piece band is led by Milan Webb, a virtuoso guitarist with a technique and tone to match Santana himself, who not only sounds the part, but looks the part too. Joining him on stage are Hector Gomez and Gez Kahan on keyboards.

“As ever, we'll be concentrating on hits, played the way everyone knows them from the records,” said Milan. “We've never been into long self-indulgent solos – and we don't think our audience are either! Our focus is on entertaining, and we love it when people get up and dance.”

When it comes to hits, the audience at the Hippodrome will be spoilt for choice – Carlos Santana has 50 years' worth. Early favourites include Jin-Go-Lo-Ba, Samba Pa Ti, Black Magic Woman and She's Not There, but Santana has continued to score chart success in the 21st century.

Tickets for the gig, starting at 7.30pm, are available from the venue's box office, by phone 01325-405405 or online via
