Santana concert chronology

The Welcome Tour was a tour by Santana promoting their new album, Welcome.

History[edit | edit source]

After releasing a new album, Welcome, the band went on tour in the United States and Canada to promote the release. During June 1974, Santana had another lineup change. Due to health problems, drummer Michael Shrieve left the group and was replaced by Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, for a short period.[1] Vocalist Leon Thomas left as well. Saxophonist Jules Broussard and singer/keyboardist Leon Patillo joined the group around this time. The set lists of this tour were similar to the set lists of their previous tour, the difference being the addition of "Mirage" and "Give and Take", months before their release on Borboletta and the removal of certain songs from the last tour.[2] One of the largest crowds Santana performed to during this tour was an appearance at the World Series of Rock festival in Cleveland's Cleveland Stadium on August 31, before a crowd of around 88,000 people.[3] The band often shared the same bill with acts such as Bad Company, Chicago, and Golden Earring.[1][4]

Recordings[edit | edit source]

No songs from this tour have been officially released, although bootleg recordings exist of certain shows, such as the performance on September 27 in Oklahoma City.[5] The concerts on July 28 and September 14 were broadcast on American radio, but only the July concert has surfaced.[6]
