The two celebrated guitarists will reunite in concert on Blu-ray in August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock Entertainment is preparing 'Santana and McLaughlin: Invitation to Illumination' for Blu-ray on August 20.
On July 1st, 2011, Montreux hosted the reunion of two master guitarists, Carlos Santana and John McLaughlin, with their "Invitation to Illumination" concert. Both musicians have been regulars at Montreux across the years but this was the first time they headlined their own concert together. The show features most of the tracks from their classic 1973 album Love Devotion Surrender mixed in with a wealth of other material. The evening was a showcase of supreme musical virtuosity and spirituality and typified the approach of these two great artists. It is certainly a performance not to be missed.
