    Default Sammy Hagar's St. Louis Concert Broadcast on MTV 30 Years Ago

    30 Years Ago: Sammy Hagar’s St. Louis Concert Broadcast on MTV

    On March 13, 1983, a Sammy Hagar concert from the packed Checkerdome in St. Louis, Mo. was broadcast live over radio stations all across the country, and also shown on MTV. The resulting bootleg is now the crown jewel of many Red Rocker fans’ video collections.

    At the time of the show, Hagar was hot on the heels of his biggest-ever solo single, ‘Your Love is Driving Me Crazy,’ but still not quite a household name. The California-raised singer and guitarist chose St. Louis, whose citizens welcomed him as a headline attraction faster than any other city, as the site for this important broadcast, which could obviously expose him to many new fans.

    The 17,000 “crazy you know whats” in attendance quickly proved that he made the right choice, showering the stage with banners, t-shirts, toilet paper and even purses while cheering on Hagar’s every move. ...

    Saw this tour in Davenport Iowa, within a week of this St Louis gig. From Night Ranger opening- and kicking some serious ass- to the TA on stage and the catwalk above and Sam being a total madman up there with his wireless headset. Still one of the best shows I have ever seen.

    I have a boot of Sam in Detroit in 1984 (on his birthday too) and it is by far the best Sammy boot I have ever heard. That guy is on fire from the opening riff to the end. It's an incredible performance, just incredible.

    I'm gonna rip the vid off of youtube of this show, I've actually never seen it....lol.

    Thanks for posting videos Atomic.
    Sam was amazing that night in St Louis. You can't teach that drive and energy.
