Carlos Santana already has a bevy of awards, and now, he can add a special Las Vegas honor to his collection. The House of Blues Las Vegas inducted the guitarist into its Blues God Ceiling on Tuesday (May 7). The Ceiling consists of a set of clay busts of blues or blues-influenced greats that hangs at the venue’s Crossroads bar.
At the ceremony, Santana mentioned several other musicians already inducted into the Blues God Ceiling and paid tribute to their legacy, including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Janis Joplin.
Quite appropriately, Santana is in the midst of a new series of shows in his multi-year House of Blues Las Vegas residency. The current string of concerts runs through June 2. He’ll be back in September and November to perform a handful of additional dates. For the full set of tour dates, head to Santana’s official website.
