Santana’s tour commemorates what he calls two of the “most important milestones” in his career: the 20th anniversary of his Grammy-winning album “Supernatural” and the 50th anniversary of his appearance at Woodstock. Santana said they were monumental moments.

“Woodstock and Supernatural took me to places I never dreamed were possible,” he said in a release. “I embraced those incredible moments in my life with all my heart. Both were supreme lessons in maintaining focus, heart and integrity in every step every day and to strive to better oneself with a high standard on and off the stage.”

The famed guitarist is also coming out with a new full-length album. Listeners can expect high-energy — and “hypnotic” — songs, rhythms, melodies and grooves. The tour was announced just before the scheduled Jan. 25 release of Santana’s new extended play record, or EP, titled “In Search of Mona Lisa.” According to Rolling Stone, the EP contains a “triptych of tunes” about the artist’s connection to perhaps the world’s most famous painting.

According to the magazine, Santana, who has played in Paris since the ’70s, only visited the Louvre three years ago. And the experience had a profound impact on him.

“She has her own air conditioning and everything,” he told the magazine about Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.” “I was like, ‘Damn.'”

Santana added: “I’m like, ‘Wow.’ And then I hear this voice say, ‘Hi’ — and I’m not making this up, like in telepathy — and I go ‘Hi.’ The voice goes, ‘Remember me, when we were lovers in another time?’ And I was like, ‘Whoa.'”
