    MCY Acquires Exclusive Worldwide Media Rights to Sammy Hagar's 'Cabo
    Wabo Birthday Bash' Concert

    Blow-Out Concert to Include Special Footage and Interviews

    NEW YORK, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital entertainment company MCY.com, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MCYC - news) has acquired a package of exclusive
    worldwide digital, broadcast, cable, satellite, DVD, home video and radio rights to Sammy Hagar's ``Cabo Wabo Birthday Bash'' concert, which was filmed by MCY

    The first leg of the ``Cabo Wabo Birthday Bash'' Tour promoting Hagar's new album, Ten 13, kicked off on November 11th in Phoenix, Arizona and is scheduled to

    multi-platinum worldwide); and two Montrose albums (one platinum). During the course of his career, Sammy has played to more than 50 million fans worldwide, and his
    current live concert, featuring his Cabo Wabo Cantina, continues to demonstrate the great songs and signature rock vocals that have made him a rock icon.

    It seems unusual to me that the show used for this is one that was done so early in the tour. I guess that shows that Sammy is confident in himself and his band.

    When the early leg of the tour only goes from the 11th to the 3rd of the following month, late November isn't "early in the tour" anymore.

    I was at the show too in Chicago. I was great though he did some wierd shit. Oh Well, He said at the show that he was doing a taping for a web broadcast and also a video. Hopefully the video is available soon. I don't really like the webcasts cause I have a suck ass HP pavilion. I had on my VHLINKS hockey jersey and sat right by a camera in the balcony in the second row. Great seats there, Hope I could promote you Brett an CO.
