    When it's Love needs to be dropped. It's not Cole Porter, Sam.

    Sammy sounds pretty good, as does the band. I always thought he was a great singer - very soulful - and had better than average guitar skills. He is often sloppy and 'bull in a China shop' in his approach, yet I often find his playing to induce 'fur rising' emotion.

    His playing on Love Walks In, from LWAN is one such instance. Deeper Kind of Love, from select dates on the '04 tour, are others.

    Glad he's out there doing his thing, still! A real trooper.

    I was there too show was great much better than the one they did at the same venue year or so ago....sounded much better... didn’t seem tired after Cabo...everyone was on point
    My wife was laughing when they made a joke about pussy...and Sammy caught himself and said “shit you can’t say that anymore...fuck yes I can I’m 71” crowd ate it up...his banter with the crowd was perfect too didn’t seemed forced very natural laid back

    Was hoping for a little more diversity set list wise but no big deal...never was a huge Bigfoot fan but that song sounded great that night as just about everything did .... would love to hear them do black dog or trampled under foot

    Love going with my wife to these shows as she’s not a huge rock or metal fan so I like getting her unbiased opinion on the sound and the show...she’s been to Sammy with me a few times and she really got a kick out of this performance

    we went to Ozzy about a month ago at Blossom amp here in between Cleveland and Akron great show too but my wife just kept saying how he looks and moves like a corpse and he’s “only 69”.

    She compared how much more lively Sammy was onstage to Ozzy and Sammy’s two years older...I told her well when you live on the beach in Baja Mexico and you sold your tequila business for mucho dinero and you do this shit just cause it’s fun...makes each step you take on stage much lighter and easier more relaxed...she added and not being married to Sharon probably helps too...

    Sammy Hagar is fucking awesome. Such a cool dude.

    I’m glad him and Mike are out there having fun and giving us fans some live Van Hagar. Not to mention a new album in January.

    They’re opening for Guns N Roses in Mexico.

    Yup.

    Say what you will about Sam and his time in VH...The guy knows how to live.

    He has created a life where he can do what he loves for fun.

    He put together a festival in socal and 10 000 ppl showed up. That's pretty good in this day and age.
    Sam's professionalism stands in contrast with VH. Sammy Hagar reached his full potential as a solo act because of this.
    VH on the other hand, with more musical talent, has underperformed because a lack of follow through, professionalism and determination. VH had even greater potential than what they achieved.
