Musician Carlos Santana and comedian George Lopez will co-headline two nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer — making for one of the season’s most unique bills.

The Santana-Lopez mini-tour is being billed as “Divine Rascals,” and each show will include a full musical set from Santana and and a full stand-up act from Lopez. The tour will play Red Rocks on Sept. 3-4 on Labor Day weekend.

“I’m delighted to be going on the road with George Lopez,” Santana said in press materials. “Besides giving me the chance to perform alongside a dear friend, these shows take me back to the grand old Bill Graham days, when different kinds of entertainment were featured on the same bill. ‘Divine Rascals’ will be a joyous experience.”

Tickets, $45-$100, go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at livenation.com.

    George Lopez was hilarious. Not usually a big fan of his, but he was great.  Santana was good.  His playing was, as always, incredible.  A little too many jams and solos however Cindy’s solo was mesmerizing.  Only a few hits; Black Magic Woman, Oye Como Va, FooFoo, and Smooth.   Vocals were great.  We left during the encoure because it was all covers.  Don’t know if there were any other hits. Only a couple new songs, one ending into an eternal jam/solos.  Would like to have seen more old and new stuff and less of a individual focus on the musicians.
