SAMMY HAGAR Hopes To Reunite With DAVID LEE ROTH And ALEX VAN HALEN Onstage In His 2024 Tour

Van Halen Tribute Shows

Sammy Hagar is set to embark on a 2024 tour focusing on VAN HALEN‘s music, featuring bassist Michael Anthony, guitarist Joe Satriani, and drummer Jason Bonham, with support from LOVERBOY.

Hagar expressed a desire for the tour to be a celebration of VAN HALEN‘s music and invited other musicians to join them, including David Lee Roth and Alex Van Halen.

The tour, scheduled to begin in July 2024, will cover 28 cities in the US and Canada, aiming to delve deep into the VAN HALEN catalog, celebrating both Hagar‘s and Roth‘s eras in the band. Hagar emphasized his hope for Alex Van Halen‘s participation despite previous unsuccessful attempts to contact him.

“We’re gonna go deep into the VAN HALEN catalog,” Hagar told “The Howard Stern Show”. “If you’re gonna go deep into the VAN HALEN catalog, you need Joe Satriani.”

“It’s time. Nobody else is gonna do it,” Sammy stated about performing songs from different eras of VAN HALEN during a recent appearance on “The Howard Stern Show.” “If Dave [Lee Roth] goes out, he can’t sing my stuff. [But] we can do a few of the early VAN HALEN songs. I have no problem with that; I did it when I was in VAN HALEN. This is really a celebration of all that, and we are the only ones who can do it.”

“We’re gonna invite every musician in every town,” he continued. “First of all, whenever you play, if there’s a guitar player in town, no matter what city it is, they come out to see Joe, just like they used to for Eddie [Van Halen]. So if we’ve got other guitar players, we’ll get them involved, other singers, get them involved. If [VAN HALEN drummer] Alex Van Halen wants to jump up, if David Lee Roth wants to come out and join us, come on, motherf**ker. You are welcome. This is about VAN HALEN.”

When asked about the likelihood of Alex Van Halen participating in the tour and potentially joining in the commemoration of his brother,” Sammy responded: “I would hope so. I reach out to Al about once a month for about five years now, and he doesn’t get back to me… I call, I leave a voice message, I send a text and I send an e-mail. All three things. ‘Al, give me a call.’ Al‘s favorite line to me was always, every time he wanted to get back together, he would say, ‘You know, Sam, we ain’t getting any younger.’ So I’d say, ‘Hey, Al, we ain’t getting any younger. Give me a call. Let me know. What do you wanna do? Come on over. Let’s get together. Mike and I’ll meet you somewhere.'”
