“Nobody is going to hear the same thing twice,” Hagar says.

“One night we’re going to come out and play Van Halen for an hour, then start cherry picking. Another night, we might just play Montrose, which will be fun because that’s only about 35 minutes of music.

“I want to do it with a different theme every night and really mix it up.”

Sammy Hagar Wants Best For His Fans

Later then, Sammy Hagar has also mentioned his fans and Las Vegas. Saying the experience in Vegas is not like the other stages, Hagar added that he wanted to make his fans enjoy the shows.

“The team at The Strat has been awesome and they’ve really allowed us to come in and do what we want to do,” he continues. “That room is great and I looked at every room that was available in Las Vegas.

“My fans, the Redheads, they come from all over the world, and you want them to be in a place like Vegas where they can have a good time before and after the show.

“The experience in Vegas is like no other town. If you can’t find something to do here, you’re either broke or in a really bad mood.”

Also, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Sammy Hagar will be joined by huge stars such as Kenny Chesney, Rick Springfield, Jerry Cantrell, Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil, who broke his ribs and was hospitalized in the mid-this month, and many more.

  1. Good!
    Hope we here the last of Sammys bitchin about Roth, Van Halen camp…

    Fuckin guy is like a brokin record, somebody give this man some cheese to go with that constant whining!

  2. I used to love watching Sammy live, first time was opening for Boston. Joining VH pretty much ruined his mojo and songwriting ability, now everything is a Pepsi commercial. Last time I saw him was the Sam and Dave tour, Dave blew him off the stage, and Sammy was so boring we all left. Glad you got rich Sam, shame you gave up your soul to do it….

  3. Maybe Sammy should stop eating sour grapes. The original VH is the best and I loved Sammy with Montrose. But he acts like a petulant child at times.

  4. Both VanHalens were great Sammy brought more out of Eddie than Dave could. Instrumentality and lyrically they were better with Sammy. Dave was better with the hard pound nothing to complex which worked also. To say one was better than the other is childish they were both good for their time together.
