SAMMY HAGAR’S ANNUAL BIRTHDAY BASH
Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar is relocating his legendary week-long Birthday Bash from the Cabo Wabo Cantina in Mexico to Southern California for an epic run of four concerts with his supergroup The Circle. They’ll set sail for Catalina Island and the biggest Birthday Bash yet. Sammy’s Catalina Island Invasion Birthday Bash will include a 3-night run of concerts Oct. 7-9 at the Catalina Casino, the historic Art Deco masterpiece on the majestic shores of Avalon. The Catalina concerts are produced in partnership with Nederlander Concerts and in coordination with the Catalina Island Company.

A limited amount of single day VIP tickets for a special acoustic show on October 7 will also go on-sale. The exclusive VIP event includes an acoustic performance with Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson, as well as a Q&A with the audience where Sammy and the band will share the real stories behind some of their biggest hits and behind the scenes antics.
“After celebrating my birthday in Cabo for almost 30 years, I truly thought nowhere on earth would ever compare. Then last year, the pandemic forced us to get creative so we took a beautiful 25-mile trip across the sea, built a stage in the sand, and played an epic concert for an audience of boats in the Catalina harbor and pay-per-view streams,” remarked Sammy Hagar. “I fell in love with the island and when we toured the Wrigley’s iconic Catalina Casino with its massive circular ballroom that opens on three sides to the bluest water I’ve seen in California, I got chills and knew we’d be back.”
For more than four decades, Sammy Hagar has been recognized as one of the best and most accomplished lead singers and songwriters in rock music. From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose, to his multi-platinum solo career, to his ride as the front man of Van Halen, Chickenfoot and his latest best-selling supergroup, The Circle, Hagar has amassed 25 Platinum albums on sales surpassing 50 million worldwide.
