Throwback Concert: Santana at Dillon Stadium 1973

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1973!

That year PLR welcomed Santana to Hartford’s Dillon Stadium. Santana hit the road in 1972-73 for its massive “Caravanserai Tour,” which made stops in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. The band was supporting its fourth studio album, “Caravanserai.”
