Sammy Hagar to celebrate Van Halen years on The Best Of All Worlds Tour

Sammy Hagar will celebrate his Van Halen years on The Best Of All Worlds tour.

The Red Rocker will be joined by his Circle bandmates Michael Anthony and Jason Bonham and Hagar’s Chickenfoot guitarist Joe Satriani for the North American trek, which follows on the heels of the chart-topping success of “The Collection II” box set, a project that spotlights newly-remastered music from the California band’s years with Hagar.

The package presents all four albums with Hagar – 1986’s “5150”, 1988’s “OU812”, 1991’s “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” and 1995’s “Balance” – alongside an exclusive compilation of studio rarities from the era and a brief reunion in 2004.

"It's crazy to think that it'll be 20 years since Mikey and I played these songs with Van Halen on the 04' Best of Both Worlds Tour," says Hagar. "With Joe on board, we can take a deeper dive into those years. We're going to touch on some hits from my entire career but seeing fans old and new really embrace the new collection set off something in Mikey and I.

“We were at my Birthday Bash in Cabo for my 76th and looked at each other and high fived, like 'let's do it.' We pulled out a couple of them and it was an instant lovefest with the fans from our first riffs. The music we created is going to outlive us all. They deserve to be heard so it's time we go out and serve the fans that music, while we still can."

Tickets for the summer series with guests Loverboy – which will open July 13 in West Palm Beach, FL and run to the end of August – are on sale now.

You can order “The Collection II” here and pick up “The Collection” here.
