VIDEO: Chickenfoot play surprise gig in Cabo

It’s Birthday Bash week for Sammy Hagar, which means the Red Rocker has taken up residence at his second home in Cabo.

Sammy and the Wabos are playing Hagar’s club, the Cabo Wabo Cantina, over four nights - October 7, 9, 11 and 13th.

The annual tradition is based around Sammy’s October 13 birthday – this year he turns 64 - where Hagar plays a series of shows and, often, is joined by special guests.

On Friday, Sammy’s guests included Chickenfoot bandmates Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Kenny Aronoff, as well as Kenny Chesney and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger.

Sunday night was Chickenfoot night, as the guys ripped through half of each of their two albums, the self-titled debut and the new “Chickenfoot III.” Sammy reportedly was using lyric sheets for the new tracks, as they haven’t been played live much yet.
