The Red Rocker Sammy Hagar has announced the plan for his birthday bash.
For two decades straight, Hagar has been hosting the yearly event at the Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Due to the running pandemic this year, however, the venue will be moved to Catalina Island, California, and will be broadcasted as a pay-per-view event.
“I have been trying to make the birthday bash available to anyone and everyone for over 20 years. The way I see this unbelievable gift under the dark cloud of COVID-19 is, we all had to roll up our sleeves, put on our thinking caps and this beautiful wonderful exotic island sitting right in front of our faces gave us the thumbs up.” he shared in a press release.
The birthday bash event will feature the Red Rocker along with his band The Circle, and a handful of surprise guests to boot. Performances are set to be filmed on October 8, although organizers strictly stated that there will be no in-person viewing on land. An official statement says: “The entire surrounding area will be social distanced and enforced by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department. The only way it can be viewed in person is to be on a boat.”
It will air via PPV on Saturday, October 17, at 6PM PT, with the HD stream priced at $24.99 while the 4K stream will be at $49.99. Tickets will be up for pre-sale on October 6 at nugs.tv.
Hagar says: “It’s going to be hard to beat the parties we’ve thrown for nearly 30 years in Cabo, but I have a good feeling about this birthday bash. Come join the party – for the first time we all get to be there. It’s coming via PPV from the beach to your house! Are we having any fun yet?”
He came under fire earlier this year after saying that he’d sacrifice himself and even die if it meant getting the music industry and the economy up and running again. He clarified that he’d be responsible when it came to safety on touring and that he was “cautiously optimistic that with the right improvements and safety measures in place, we might be able to play shows this year.”
