Chesney To Perform at Sammy Hagar’s Birthday Bash

Kenny Chesney will perform a one-night sold-out concert this Friday (10/12) celebrating the 65th birthday of rocker Sammy Hagar in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The four-day event kicked off October 7 with Hagar and his band, the Wabos and runs through Hagar’s official birthday, October 13.

VIP winners, as part of a charity package auctioned off at Emeril Lagasse’s New Orleans Carnivale du Vin fundraiser, will dine at Hagar’s beachfront home with preparations by Chef Lagasse, followed by VIP access to a private balcony at Cabo Wabo Cantina for Chesney’s concert.

For over 20 years, the annual birthday event has included many of Hagar’s celebrity friends. This year, in addition to Chesney and Lagasse, Michael Anthony (Van Halen), Joe Satriani (Chickenfoot), Matt Sorum (Velvet Revolver and Guns N’ Roses) and Denny Carmassi (Montrose) will attend. Chesney first played at Hagar’s bash in 2004, setting a club record for a performance that lasted 3 hours and 40 minutes.

Tickets for the event went on sale on yesterday and have already sold out.

A livestream of the events is available here.
