Sammy Hagar & The Circle are hitting the road this summer along with Whitesnake. The 30-city trek will also feature special guest Night Ranger on all dates.

Touring as the circle are bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson, alongside Hagar. Whitesnake will be made up of former Deep Purple singer and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer David Coverdale with guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra, drummer Tommy Aldridge, bassist Michael Devin and keyboardist Michele Luppi.

“I love some friendly competition on stage and that’s exactly what this is going to be,” said Hagar in a release. “David and I have nothing but the highest respect for one another, but we would also like to blow the other guy off the stage! Add in Night Ranger and the fans will have one hell of a night of music.”


The North American tour will kick off on July 9 at iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Flor. and run through Georgia, Virginia, New York, Michigan, Texas and more. The dates are scheduled to close out on Sept. 20 with a performance at North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, Calif.

“The Red Rocker & The Snake??? OMG…I wanna see that show myself!!!,” said Coverdale in a release. “I’m a big fan of Sammy Hagar, Michael, Vic & Jason…We’re gonna have a blast together!! See Y’All There, People!!!”

On tour, Sammy Hagar & The Circle plan to play career-spanning hits from Montrose, Van Halen, Hagar’s solo career, as well as the band’s hit debut studio album Space Between. Setlists will include hits like, “There’s Only One Way To Rock,” “Finish What Ya Started,” “Mas Tequila,” “I Can’t Drive 55,” “Can’t Hang,” “Rock Candy,” “Right Now” and many more.


“Night Ranger is pumped to be on the tour with Sammy and Whitesnake. Night Ranger’s first tour was with Sammy, and the two Whitesnake guitarists Reb and Joel have both played in Night Ranger,” said Night Ranger in a release. “This gives the tour and ‘The Circle’ even more meaning to us! You can still rock in America for sure.”
