Sammy Hagar performs Van Halen classic in new Lockdown Sessions video

Sammy Hagar And The Circle can be seen performing an abbreviated cover of Van Halen’s 1986 track, “Good Enough”, in the third installment of the band’s new “lockdown sessions” series.

“One more week in COVID-19 lockdown and Sammy & The Circle continue to get their jam on,” says the group. “This week it's the Van Hagar classic ‘Good Enough’ that the Circle was thinking of including in the set list for the next tour. What do you think?

“Stay Healthy. Stay Home. Stay Tuned.”

“Good Enough” was the opening song on “5150”, Hagar’s debut record with the group following the departure of David Lee Roth; the first of his four records with Van Halen delivered the band their first US No. 1 album after their previous release, “1984”, stalled at No. 2 behind the juggernaut of one of the best-selling albums in music history, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Hagar exited Van Halen in 1996, and returned for an ill-fated reunion tour behind a greatest hits compilation in 2004.

Hagar and The Circle are currently scheduled to begin a US summer tour with Night Ranger on July 9 in West Palm Beach, FL.
