Music legend Carlos Santana kicked off his South African tour in Cape Town.

The 67-year-old Mexican-born muso has touched down in the Mother City to share his hits with South African audiences

Santana will be in Johannesburg on 1 March.

Santana, listed as one of the top 20 greatest guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, is touring South Africa for the first time.

He became a pioneer in the music industry in the late 1960s when he fused rock and Latin American music.

In 1998, Santana and his band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a museum that archives some of the most successful and influential artists in the rock music industry.

“I feel really excited... I feel for me this is the music I always played since I was a child. I was born in Mexico but I got the African virus of the rhythms, the colours, the melodies you know, and the spirit so Santana is 99.9 African music,” said the musical maestro.

For Joburg fans, Metrorail will be providing to the concert.

It will at 7pm at FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.

To avoid the hassle of traffic jams and parking worries associated with such big events, fans are encouraged to travel by train using Metrorail's safe and convenient Park - Ride facilities available at stopping stations.
