Guitar legend Carlos Santana performed at Inter stadium in Bratislava on June 29 as part of his Live Your Light Tour, Katarína Petrenko from the Equinox agency told the TASR newswire on June 30.

The concert was originally scheduled for June 26, but had to be postponed due a thunderstorm. Santana very much appreciated the dedication of his Slovak fans, who had been soaked to the skin on June 26, and changed his playlist to include a selection of his greatest hits.

Petrenko praised Santana's big heart and "humanity" in deciding to make up for the lost concert. The guitarist left Slovakia immediately after the concert, heading for the next stop on his tour - Verona, Italy. TASR
