Sammy Hagar rocks downtown Las Vegas with his new band The Circle

The Red Rocker plans to play hits from his four-decade career

Sammy Hagar will take a different approach to concerts when he brings his new band The Circle to the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center in April.

The Red Rocker teamed up with Michael Anthony, the bassist who has played with him for the past 30 years in bands including Van Halen and Chickenfoot; Vic Johnson, the guitarist from Hagar’s band The Wabos; and Jason Bonham, the drummer and son of iconic Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham.

Hagar was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Van Halen in 2007 and has 25 platinum certifications on sales surpassing 40 million.

Hagar plans to take fans through his four-decade career, playing songs from his band Montrose, his solo career, Van Halen and more. Hagar teases that the addition of Bonham to his group opens the door to Led Zeppelin songs as well.

The concert, scheduled Saturday, April 11, will take over the 15,000-seat open-air events center that is part of downtown’s D Las Vegas. Hagar threw his birthday bash there in October.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 27, starting at $63.75.

Tickets: Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, (702) 388-2100
