August is a busy month during the Summer Concert Series at the Tulalip Amphitheatre.

Up next is the Sammy Hagar concert on Thursday, Aug. 14. Tickets start at about $55 for the standing-room-only beer garden. It’s one of Tulalip’s most popular concerts this season. Earlier this week, the show was just about sold out.

The next day, Aug. 15, Tulalip hosts Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, Blues Traveler and Uncle Kracker. Tickets start at about $39, also in the SRO beer section. On Aug. 21, the 1970s band “Yes” plays the amphitheatre, with similar ticket prices.

Singer and songwriter Hagar, 66, will be joined in the show, “A Journey Through the History of Rock,” by bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson. Anthony, another Van Halen alum, plays with Hagar in the band Chickenfoot and guitarist Johnson plays with Hagar in the group Wabos. Bonham is the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

The former front man of Van Halen and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Hagar was a young man when he “burst on the scene from San Francisco as the lead vocalist of Montrose, whose song ‘Rock Candy’ has gone on to become a certified rock class,” according to Hagar’s website.

After a bunch of solo albums and cross-country tours, Hagar, known as the Red Rocker, joined Van Halen in 1985.

Later he performed with his band the Wabos, enjoyed a 2004 reunion tour with Van Halen and now plays primarily with his current band Chickenfoot, which also includes guitarist Joe Satriani and drummer Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers fame.

Hagar’s fans, known as “Redheads,” can expect a variety of tunes from the rocker on Thursday.

A set from a stop on the current tour included the songs “There’s Only One Way to Rock,” “Rock Candy,” “Good Times Bad Times,” “I Can’t Drive 55,” “Whole Lotta Love,” “Moby Dick,” “Best of Both Worlds,” “Right Now” and “Rock and Roll.”

Along with his music, Hagar is known for raising money to benefit charities in the cities where he performs. Hagar plans to donate a portion of proceeds from the show to the Tulalip Food Bank.

Sammy Hagar performed before a packed house at the Tulalip Resort Casino Amphitheatre on August 15th, for his 40 Years of Rock tour.  Along with the high-energy rock n’ roll Sammy is famous for, what make the Red Rocker’s performances even more memorable are the donations he makes to local food banks in each community he visits. As part of this ongoing support of local food banks, Sammy chose to donate $2,500 towards the Tulalip Food Bank.

“Food banks in your local community are the biggest bang for your buck in my search for the simplest and most reliable way to help others,” Hagar said in a recent Billboard article. “You see the clientele lined up and they need it. You don’t see people taking advantage of something.”
A multi-platinum, outgoing, bombastic front man of hard rock champions Van Halen, Hagar is a member in good standing of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He will be releasing his first solo album in five years on September 24, 2013.  Hagar has enlisted three legendary musicians – Toby Keith, Mickey Hart and Taj Mahal – to round out the final three tracks of the album to be titled: “Sammy Hagar and Friends.”

If you are interested in donating to the food bank, you can reach the Tulalip Food Bank at 425.512.6435 or 1330 Marine Ave NE, Tulalip, WA 98271.

“Red Rocker” Sammy Hagar Performs Under the Stars at Tulalip Amphitheatre


Tulalip, Washington — The “Red Rocker”, Sammy Hagar, will be making a first, much anticipated appearance at the Tulalip Resort Casino Amphitheatre on Thursday, August 15.  A multi-platinum, outgoing, bombastic front man of hard rock champions Van Halen, Hagar is a member in good standing of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
