As of yet, the 63-year-old Mexican native (he's been a U.S. citizen since 1965) hasn't announced if the concert will feature anything of an activist nature, though given his stance, I certainly wouldn't be surprised if it did.
It's interesting that Santana is taking an approach different from that of the Sound Strike boycott (the Sound Strike, by the way, hasn't announced intentions to boycott Georgia just yet). My hope is that Santana and co. get in contact with Humane Borders, the Samaritans, No More Deaths, and Border Action Network --all organizations who hosted tables at a recent Los Lobos concert in Tucson -- and backs up his stance with some tangible effort.

As a music critic, I also hope he just plays his awesome 1973 album Love Devotion and Surrender live, and none of his awful stuff like "Smooth," but my expectations are considerably higher for the former than the latter.
