Red Rocker: Sammy Hagar & The Circle Concert Review

Sammy Hagar’s band, The Circle, rocked a sold out crowd in Huber Heights, Ohio, Monday of June 5th.
Sammy’s band includes his solo band guitarist of 20 years Vic Johnson, Van Halen bassist/backing vocalist/occasional lead vocalist and Sammy’s musical partner in crime Michael Anthony, and drummer extraordinaire Jason Bonham, who has played with his Dad’s band, Led Zeppelin!!!!!
They played a great selection of Sammy’s stuff from throughout his career, from Montrose, solo, VH, and Chickenfoot, as well as some Zeppelin classics.
Throughout the set, people were throwing stuff on stage for Sammy to sign, and he signed almost all of it. Very cool! He was even signing stuff just to hand out to fans. Again, very cool!
This is a great band that I hope someday will make new music.
If not, I’m still glad I got to see them as a unit.
I had only not seen Michael before.
All in all, a fun night of great music.
Oh and Sammy’s son Aaron opened the show with a brief acoustic set.
Next show for me: Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers/Joe Walsh on Monday, June 12, in Cincinnati.
Love and Peace.
