Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar will return to Baja in October to celebrate his legendary Birthday Bash with three epic nights of performances featuring his Billboard chart-topping group, The Circle at Cabo Wabo Cantina. In addition, as a special gift to the fans who can’t be in Baja, Hagar’s award-winning spirits brands, Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. and Santo Spirits will host Cabo-style Birthday Bash Tribute Parties in Southern California, Las Vegas and Chicago featuring live performances by some of Hagar’s favorite tribute bands.


Sammy Hagar & The Circle, which is comprised of fellow Hall of Famer and longtime bassist Michael Anthony, Grammy-winning drummer Jason Bonham, and guitar virtuoso Vic Johnson, will headline this year’s Birthday Bash in Cabos San Lucas, taking place over three party-filled nights on Monday, Oct. 9, Wednesday, Oct. 11 and culminating on the night of Hagar’s birthday on Friday, Oct. 13. The week-long celebration, which is attended by hundreds of fans each year, is just one demonstration of the impact that Hagar has had on making Los Cabos a worldwide tourist destination and a boost for the local economy. In 2021, Hagar became the first person to be awarded the accreditation of Honorary Ambassador of Los Cabos, Mexico.

Hagar’s annual Birthday Bash, which is now in its 33rd year, is the highlight of the year for hardcore Hagar fans, also known as Redheads, who make the annual trek to Baja California to enjoy the party atmosphere, music and free-flowing spirits. The highly-coveted tickets are already sold out, but that doesn’t stop thousands of fans who make the annual trek to Cabo to eagerly stand in line for days outside the club for a chance to get last-minute tickets.


This year for the first time, Redheads who can’t attend the party in Cabos San Lucas will have more than one way to rock because Hagar will bring the legendary Cabo-style party experience to Huntington Beach, Las Vegas and Chicago. Each of these satellite Birthday Bash Tribute Parties will feature live performances of Hagar’s biggest hits and drinks featuring the rocker’s own top-shelf Beach Bar Rum, Santo Tequila and Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co.’s sparkling rum canned cocktails.

The Southern California beachside celebration will feature a live performance by acclaimed Hagar tribute band Red Voodoo, who shared the stage with the Red Rocker himself at the Beach Club’s grand opening party earlier this year. In honor of Hagar’s 76th birthday, tickets are priced at $76 per person and include entry to the event as well as a queso-birria dish and a choice of two drinks from Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktails, Red Rocker cocktails or house drinks. Cabo Wabo Beach Club in The Waterfront Beach Resort is located at 21100 Pacific Coast Hwy. in Huntington Beach, California. Tickets and information are available on the website at

Sammy Hagar:

For five decades, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar has been recognized as one of the best and most accomplished lead singers and songwriters in rock music. From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose, to his multi-platinum solo career, to his ride as the frontman of Van Halen, Chickenfoot and his latest best-selling supergroup, The Circle.


Since opening his flagship Cabo Wabo Cantina in 1990, he’s turned a lifelong passion for great food, music and spirits into a thriving and iconic lifestyle brand encompassing restaurants and spirits. He launched Cabo Wabo Tequila in 1996 and catapulted it into the #2 ultra-premium tequila brand in the United States, cementing his position as a spirits industry trailblazer. He sold Cabo Wabo Tequila in 2010 for what was at the time a record-breaking $100 million. He now owns an award-winning portfolio of top-shelf spirits and beer that embody that same spirit of Baja beach life and rock ‘n’ roll. They include Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, a partnership with rock icon Rick Springfield, Santo Spirits, a partnership with tastemaker Guy Fieri, Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. and Red Rocker Brewing Co. Made in Puerto Rico, Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum was founded in 2012 and comes in three varieties: the newly enhanced Platinum Rum and Kola Spiced Rum as well as Red Head Rum. Santo Spirits was founded in 2017 and now offers Santo Tequila Añejo, Santo Tequila Blanco, Santo Tequila Reposado and Santo Tequila Blanco 110, as well as the innovative Mezquila – the world’s first tequila/mezcal blend. Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum steeps island flavor into Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co.’s top-shelf sparkling rum cocktails in a can, which debuted in 2021. A nod to Hagar’s Cabo roots, Red Rocker Brewing Co.’s inaugural release, Red Rocker Lager, is a Mexican-style lager that is light, crisp and refreshing, with just a touch of sweetness.


He’s also a #1 NYT bestselling author and his first cocktail book, “Sammy Hagar’s Greatest Cocktail Hits,” was awarded the singular GOLD Medal in the cookbook category from the 2023 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Hagar is a dedicated philanthropist whose private non-profit foundation focuses on food relief and children’s causes across the country. Visit for more information.
