Representatives for the House of Blues say the 10-time Grammy winner will have a run of shows in May and June, then return in September with the residency running through 2013.

Santana, considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time, says he’s happy to call the venue home, and plans to honor the diversity and culture that the House of Blues promotes as a company.

Part of each ticket sale will go to Santana’s The Milagro Foundation, which supports children’s art, education and health.

Tickets go on sale next month.
