Sammy Hagar turns the big 7-0 on October 13, and to celebrate the milestone the Red Rocker is organizing a special edition of his annual birthday bash at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The 27th annual installment of the star-studded event will be held over the course of four nights, on October 9, 11, 13 and 14.
Tickets to the concerts, which cost $70, will be made available via a random lottery-style drawing for those who register at RedRocker.com or at Hagar’s Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages. Registration will be open from Wednesday, July 12, at 10 a.m. PT through Tuesday, July 18, at 6 p.m. PT. Winners will be announced on July 21, and tickets will be limited to two per household per show.
Over the years, a jaw-dropping list of famous musicians has taken part in Hagar’s birthday shows at the Cabo Wabo Cantina, including Van Halen, late Who bassist John Entwistle, Stevie Wonder, Heart‘s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Joan Jett, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Slash, Duff McKagan, Dave Grohl, Jerry Cantrell, Chad Smith, Bob Weir, Iggy Pop, Tommy Lee, John Mayer and Adam Levine.
