Sammy Hagar & The Wabos to rock at Harrahs Lake Tahoe

Staff Reports
Sammy Hagar & The Wabos return to South Lake Tahoe this weekend.

Sammy Hagar & The Wabos will be rocking the South Shore Room this weekend at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.

The “Red Rocker” is known around the world for being a rock vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, musician and business owner.

Hagar’s name first became well-known in the mid-70s with his pioneering hard rock band, Montrose.

Montrose first broke Hagar into the rock scene. While Montrose was successful, Hagar truly stepped into the limelight when he joined Van Halen in 1985. Hagar was the frontman for Van Halen when they released four multi-platinum albums and left the band after tensions arose in 1996.

Hagar went on to create his solo album “Marching to Mars.” Years later in 2006, he released his live album “Live: Hallelujah. Livin’It Up!” and then two years later released another solo album called “Cosmic Universal Fashion” which marked his 11th solo album.

He reconnected with Van Halen bassist, Michael Anthony, guitarist Joe Satriani, and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith to create the band “Chickenfoot.” He continues to make new music and collaborations.

For almost 40 years, Hagar has been a celebrated name in the rock music scene. He started his fame in rock, but over the years he has been noted for being a New York Times best-selling author, a generous donor and an entrepreneur with Cabo Wabo Cantinas.

Hagar & The Wabos plays this Saturday night.
