Viva Las Vegas! Sammy Hagar hit the strip at THE STRAT for his Opening Night residency "Sammy Hagar & Friends". In the STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod (formerly known as the Stratosphere) and will feature The Red Rocker collaborating with a rotating circle of his legendary friends starting with shows on Friday, October 29, Saturday, October 30, Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6.
Sammy says: "I've been searching the Las Vegas Strip trying to find the right room, ambience and partners to create a very special Cabo Wabo birthday-bash-type environment for my band members and musician friends to create the ultimate party residency. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to 'Sammy And Friends'. You all know the rules. There aren't any."
First on the list of his list of legendary friends was Stephen Pearcy. The audience loved the collaboration. What a Great kick-off to Sammy's Las Vegas residency!
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Hagar is inviting such guest stars as Toby Keith, Rick Springfield, Kenny Chesney, Vince Neil (MÖTLEY CRÜE) and Jerry Cantrell (ALICE IN CHAINS) to the party. As for the setlist, Hagar says: "THE CIRCLE has the best setlist in the world, and the WABOS play a lot more of my old, deeper tracks, and my old vintage catalog from the rocker area, from the '70s, '80s — it's a mosh-up," Hagar said. "We'll start with six, seven VAN HALEN songs, a couple of MONTROSE tracks, a LED ZEPPELIN song, six CIRCLE songs. We'll mix it up pretty good."
The theater is designed to capture the beach vibe he's synonymous with, including elements of Hagar's famed Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, home to his epic annual birthday bash.
