Merry Christmas from Sammy Hagar

Sammy Hagar is sending fans Christmas greetings from Hawaii.

The Red Rocker has posted a photo of himself in the tropical paradise where he has one of his several homes.

In a holiday message this week, Sammy revealed that he is hoping to get out and play some live shows, maybe even a full tour.

2013 marks Hagar’s 40th anniversary in rock based on the 1973 release of the debut Montrose album.

Back in May, Sammy announced plans to test drive a new format for his 2013 live shows.

Billed as “4 Decades Of Rock,” Hagar’s plan is to build an evening featuring highlights from his lengthy career.

Sammy & The Wabos would open the show, followed by The Other Half (including former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony); a Montrose tribute set would be next, and then the evening would wrap up with Chickenfoot.

“This is a prototype to the type of thing I want to take on the road next year,” said Hagar when announcing his plans, “so I promise it to be the party of a lifetime!”

Hagar’s September 1 show at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harvey's in Stateline, Nevada was the first event with the new format.
