"We chose cool, smaller venues on this tour so we could throw a party like we do in Cabo," said Hagar. "It's about the whole experience, fans can sample my new Beach Bar Cocktail Co. sparkling rum cocktails, along with some Santo Tequila and Beach Bar Rum, while listening to THE CIRCLE jam. We'll be back next summer with the big rock shows, this is a party we're throwing just for Texas."
Hagar made history when he launched Sammy's Beach Bar Cocktail Co. last month with the Las Vegas Strip's first-ever rooftop performance for people on the Strip. The cocktails, made with Hagar's award-winning Puerto Rico-made Beach Bar Rum, are available in four playful twists on classic flavors: Tangerine Dream, Pineapple Splash, Island Pop and Cherry Kola Chill. The flavorful canned cocktails will soon be available throughout Texas. The cocktails are now available in California, Nevada and Texas with more states coming soon.
For more than four decades, 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 frontman of VAN HALEN, CHICKENFOOT and his latest supergroup THE CIRCLE, Hagar has amassed 25 platinum albums on sales surpassing 50 million worldwide. Along his journey, he has set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems ever and earned the highest respect of the music industry with a Grammy Award and induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
At THE CIRCLE shows, fans will experience the legendary artists performing some of Hagar's greatest hits, spanning more than four decades, including songs like "I Can't Drive 55", "Dreams", "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy", "Mas Tequila", "Why Can't This Be Love", "Right Now" and many more.
