VIDEO: Sammy Hagar rehearses for birthday bash concert this weekend

Sammy Hagar is sharing video of rehearsals for his belated birthday bash concert, set for this Saturday, October 18 at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

The evening will see Sammy Hagar & The Circle featuring Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson playing a setlist spanning four decades – including hits from Montrose, Hagar’s solo career, Van Halen and beyond – and with Bonham on board, they can also expect a few Led Zeppelin classics. In addition, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith will join Hagar and Anthony for a special encore by Chickenfoot.

“The good news is we are gonna be recording this,” says Hagar. “We’re gonna film this...we’re not gonna let this get away. Not this big bash. I wanna see all your faces out there… I wanna hear your voices singing along with all them hits. The greatest setlist of all time!”

Hagar, who will turn 67 on October 13, was scheduled to perform his annual birthday shows at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on October 7, 9, 11 and 13.

The Red Rocker was forced to move the event following recent damage in Cabo caused by Hurricane Odile.

Hagar has just released his first acoustic album, “Lite Roast.”

The project sees Sammy teamed with Waboritas guitarist Vic Johnson to deliver stripped-down versions of tunes from Hagar’s career.
