Sammy Hagar has added two more shows to his previously announced Las Vegas residency at The STRAT after the initial batch of dates sold out in two hours.
The show, called “Sammy Hagar And Friends”, will now take place on October 29, October 30, November 5, November 6, November 12 and November 13 at 9 p.m.
“I’ve been searching the Las Vegas Strip trying to find the right room, ambience and partners to create a very special Cabo Wabo birthday bash type environment for my band members and musician friends to create the ultimate party residency,” Hagar said in a press release.
Hagar will bring together a legendary circle of friends and bandmates, past and present, to the intimate 800-capacity STRAT Theater, including 300 GA floor tickets for a party vibe in front of the stage. Michael Anthony, the legendary bassist who’s played with Hagar for the past 30 years in bands including VAN HALEN, CHICKENFOOT and THE CIRCLE, and Vic Johnson, Hagar‘s longtime guitar virtuoso and bandmate in THE CIRCLE are confirmed for the first four shows. Jason Bonham, the acclaimed Grammy-winning drummer and their bandmate in THE CIRCLE is confirmed for the first two shows, October 29 and October 30, with surprise and special guests to be announced.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Hagar is inviting such guest stars as Toby Keith, Rick Springfield, Kenny Chesney, Vince Neil (MÖTLEY CRÜE) and Jerry Cantrell (ALICE IN CHAINS) to the party. As for the setlist, Hagar says: “THE CIRCLE has the best setlist in the world, and the WABOS play a lot more of my old, deeper tracks, and my old vintage catalog from the rocker area, from the ’70s, ’80s — it’s a mosh-up,” Hagar said. “We’ll start with six, seven VAN HALEN songs, a couple of MONTROSE tracks, a LED ZEPPELIN song, six CIRCLE songs. We’ll mix it up pretty good.”
The theater will be designed to capture the beach vibe he’s synonymous with, including elements of Hagar‘s famed Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, home to his epic annual birthday bash.
