What would the summer concert season be without an appearance by the Red Rocker and
his booze soaked entourage? With over 30 years in the biz, Hagar comes armed with a
slew of hits via his solo beginnings and from his stint as lead singer for Van Halen.
Headbangers and agave aficionados alike will jam the amphitheaters across this great
land of ours to revel in the rambunctiousness of Sammy Hagar.
Sammy is a busy guy. On top of overseeing his two Cabo Wabo cantinas in Los Cabos,
Mexico and Lake Tahoe, occasionally dropping in to entertain the masses, he fronts his
solo band ‘The Wabos.' He also recently embarked on a new project ‘The Other Half’ with Van
Halen bassist Michael Anthony, who will also accompany him on the Summer tour. His
Cabo Wabo brand premium tequila is a top seller as well.
Though he became a superstar when he replaced David Lee Roth in Van Halen in 1985,
Hagar was a staple of the rock radio airwaves in the early 80’s. Classics like ‘I Can’t Drive 55,’
Your Love is Driving Me Crazy,’ and ‘There’s Only One Way to Rock’ forged a love
affair with the suburban kids sporting long hair and cruisin' the strip in their Trans Ams.
At each stop along the summer tour, dubbed the "Livin' It Up", organizers will set up a
"Cabo Wabo village" that will be "jammed with bikini girls, body builders, mariachi
bands, food, drink, contests and probably some other cool stuff to boot," according to
