THE RED ROCKER SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE BRING AN EXPLOSIVE ENERGY TO FIREKEEPERS CASINO HOTEL OCTOBER 21(Battle Creek, Mich.) July 11, 2023 — The legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and successful entrepreneur, Sammy Hagar, is set to ignite the stage at the FireKeepers Event Center Saturday, October 21 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday, July 29 at 10 a.m. with prices starting at $99 + fees. Tickets will be available for purchase online at FireKeepersCasino.com or in-person at the FireKeepers Casino Hotel Box Office, conveniently located in the Hotel Lobby. With a career spanning over four decades, Sammy Hagar, also known as the Red Rocker, has established himself as one of the most dynamic and prolific artists in rock music. From his early break into the music industry with the hard rock band Montrose, to his multiplatinum solo career and his time as the front man of Van Halen, Chickenfoot, and his latest supergroup The Circle, Hagar has amassed an impressive feat of 25 Platinum albums on sales surpassing 50 million worldwide. Accompanied by his long-time band The Circle, featuring former Van Halen bandmate and fellow Rock Hall member Michael Anthony on bass, along with Vic Johnson on guitar and Jason Bonham on drums, fans can expect an unforgettable night filled with some of the greatest rock anthems ever written. Prepare to be blown away with hits like “I Can’t Drive 55,” “Right Now,” and the Billboard topper “Why Can’t This Be Love.” “The legendary Red Rocker will surely bring the energy along with all of his iconic hits to the Event Center,” stated Jim Wise, FireKeepers VP of Marketing. “Guests can expect an evening of great music and fun as they rock the night away.” Hagar’s talents expand well beyond music. He is a successful restauranteur, New York Times best-selling author, songwriter, and dedicated philanthropist. His Cabo Wabo Tequila was a huge hit, which he sold and then started Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum and followed that with Santo Mezquila, a tequila/mezcal combo. Sammy’s passion for food led him to build Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in 1990. More recently, his Sammy’s Beach Bar and Grill restaurants opened in four airports, donating his proceeds from these locations to local charities. In 2022, Sammy was awarded Mexico’s Medal of Honor and named Los Cabos’ first Honorary Ambassador of Tourism by the region’s top dignitaries, in recognition of his longtime investment in their people and economy. Hagar’s concert is presented by his award-winning portfolio of spirits, including SantoTequila and Mezquila, a partnership with Guy Fieri; his premium Puerto Rico-made Beach Bar Rum, with partner Rick Springfield; and Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co., his new top-shelf sparkling rum cocktails in a can.
