The special, titled Santana IV, documents a March 2016 show at the House of Blues in Las Vegas marking the first time that Carlos Santana and his fellow founding band mates Gregg Rolie, Michael Shrieve and Michael Carabello, as well as ex-Santana guitarist Neal Schon, all played together live since 1973.

The concert features performances of such classic songs as “Black Magic Woman,” “Oye Como Va,” “Evil Ways” and “Soul Sacrifice,” plus select tunes from the group’s new reunion album, also titled Santana IV. The record is considered a sequel to 1971’s Santana III, the last Santana album also to feature Carlos playing with Rolie, Shrieve, Carabello and Schon. A video clip from Santana IV of the band playing the new song “Anywhere You Want to Go” has been posted at the official AXS TV YouTube channel.

The special is part of AXS TV’s “Whole Lotta Love” Father’s Day Marathon, which kicks off 10 a.m. ET. The programming block also will include a variety of concert flicks featuring Bachman & Turner, Jeff Beck, Yes, Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin.
