Last December, Santana had an “unscheduled heart procedure” which forced him to cancel several of his Las Vegas shows.

In a 2021 Twitter video, he told fans “There have been rumors flying around here and there about this and that, so I’m here to just crystalize and make it clear.”

“Last Saturday, I had an incident where I asked my wife, Cindy [Blackman], to take me to the hospital because I had this thing happening in my chest. So when we went there, we found out that I needed to take care of it. So I am.”

“I’m going to be taking time off for a little bit to make sure I replenish, and I rest and I catch up with my health so that when I play for you, I will play the way I’m used to and give you 150 percent,” Santana added.
