Sammy Hagar planning Las Vegas residency

Sammy Hagar is planning to launch a Las Vegas residency this summer.

According to The Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Red Rocker is hoping to set up shop in June at the "Celestia" tent inside the Strat Hotel, Casino and SkyPod, formerly known as the Stratosphere; Hagar would then settle into a one-weekend-per-month residency, with a format that would follow his infamous birthday parties at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

“I want to create the ultimate environment where I can throw the ultimate party, like I have done in Cabo for 30 years for my birthday, but at another time of year here in Las Vegas, which is really the party capital of the world,” explains Hagar. “I hate to put Cabo second to anything, but I feel in this case it’s gotta take second place to Las Vegas.”

The guitarist is already issuing an open invitation to such artists and friends as Rick Springfield, Billy Idol, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, Neal Schon, Vince Neil and members of REO Speedwagon to join him during the series.

Further details regarding the residency are expected soon.

Hagar and The Circle will begin a South American tour in support of their “Space Between” album in Santiago, Chile on March 14, and will team up with Whitesnake for a US trek that will open in West Palm Beach, FL on July 9.
