Celebrating more than four decades of Hagar’s greatest hits, the residency features Sammy Hagar & The Circle, Hagar’s best-selling rock supergroup with Michael Anthony, renowned bassist and fellow Rock Hall of Fame inductee; Grammy-award winning drummer, Jason Bonham; and Vic Johnson, Hagar’s longtime guitar virtuoso, as they tear through Hagar’s most iconic rock anthems spanning his solo career, Montrose, Van Halen, Chickenfoot and The Circle. Fans will take in the music experience of a lifetime with an ever-changing setlist that includes, “I Can’t Drive 55,” “There’s Only One Way To Rock,” “Right Now,” “Heavy Metal,” “Your Love is Driving Me Crazy,” “Mas Tequila,” “Why Can’t This Be Love,” and many more. Plus, surprise additions to the setlist when his legendary friends drop in to jam. Past shows have featured surprise performances by rock greats and friends including the legendary Bob Weir of Grateful Dead, Grammy Award winner Rick Springfield, and Stephen Pearcy from epic rock band, RATT.
“I’m thrilled to be returning to The STRAT for my Las Vegas residency,” said Hagar. “We have created the ultimate concert party in a theater that captures the beach vibes of my annual birthday parties in Cabo San Lucas with a new show every night. It’s a blast and I can’t wait to continue with my bandmates, special guests and Redheads in 2022.”
“The first run of the ‘Sammy Hagar & Friends’ residency exceeded all of our wildest expectations, which is why we couldn’t be more excited to announce these additional show dates,” said Steve Arcana, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Golden Entertainment, Inc., parent company of The STRAT. “Sammy Hagar is one of rock music’s most dynamic and prolific artists, and we’re thrilled to have him at The STRAT.”
The announcement comes on the heels of Hagar’s designation as the first official Honorary Ambassador to Los Cabos, Mexico. Honoring his longtime investment in the people and economy of Los Cabos, an award and medal were presented to Hagar last week at a commemorative ceremony with some of the region’s top dignitaries.
