    Default Sammy Hopes To Make Concerts Free In The Future

    Sorry, if this has been posted before, but I didn't find a thread with this topic. If there already is one, I aplogize and one of the mods can close this one.

    According to blabbermouth.net, Sammy hopes to do his shows for free in the future. Here's the whole article:

    SAMMY HAGAR Hopes To Make Concerts Free In The Future - Aug. 1, 2005
    Launch Radio Networks reports: Sammy Hagar hopes that in the near future he won't have to charge for a concert ticket again. Hagar told Launch that his other ventures, like Cabo Wabo tequila and his Cabo Wabo Cantina clubs, are making enough money to subsidize his live dates. He plans to pass that benefit on to the fans. "I'm getting real close to being able to go out and perform, big concerts with huge production, for free," he said. "That's what I'm trying to get to. It's a year or two early from being able to do it for free, assuming the company keeps growing the way it is."

    Hagar's "The Tequila Made Me Do It Tour" kicks off this Saturday (August 6) in Independence Township, Michigan. Besides music from Hagar with both THE WABORITAS and MONTROSE, the shows will also feature a parking lot tailgate party with beach volleyball, auto shows, a "Sammy-oke" karaoke stage, Mariachi bands, and photo ops with donkeys wearing sombreros.

    Hagar, who spent most of 2004 with a reunited VAN HALEN, hopes to start work on a new album later this year.

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Awfully nice of Saint Sammy. God, has anybody else seemed quite so desperate to come off as a "good guy." There's nothing wrong with charging a reasonable price for a concert ticket, why not just say he'd like to keep prices down, rather than this b.s. about "free" shows?

    I love Sammy (and everything VH). However, this will never happen and his discussion of it (concert tix prices, money he has made from Cabo Wabo, etc.) has become tiring.

    Concentrate on the music, or better yet, the promise ("It's About Time") to kick the VH fanbase in the ass for the years of futility!

    How desperate is this guy for attention..................Another Im doing it for the fans deal......Geeezzz.........Remember when he got into the tequila business so his fans could enjoy the same tequila he did?????...

    I know Sam, charge me the 50 bucks and give me a concert without pimping the tequila for 90 minutes.....That would be nice.............


    YOu can fool some of us but not all of us..............

    easy for a 60 year old millionaire to say that....i'm a starving artist and the only way my band makes money is from shows, not from cd sales....i'm sure i'd talk like sammy too if i wanted everyone to love me and i was set for life financially.

    If the free concerts are Sammy's true intentions, then that is cool of him. If not, then it is really uncool to gain press with these statements.

    It's foolish to underestimate the character assassination squad. They know the tequila pimp's true nature far better than the rest of us. They see the things we don't.

    Well now wait a minute, that's not definite!!

    I thought it sounded like a great concept, but apparently too good to be true for some I guess. Who wouldn't want to be able to have their production costs already paid for?????

    As someone else said, I can't wait to see this thread in about ONE HOUR.

    Come on, you don't find that statement to be just a little too self serving? Hey, I would love for him to prove me wrong and start playing for free but he would be the first act in history to stop charging for his shows. I like Sammy but statements like that are just silly.

    I will say that none of us know the context in which it was said, maybe he was joking around and it got reported as a factual statement.
