Sammy Hagar openly invites former Van Halen vocalist, David Lee Roth, and drummer Alex Van Halen, to join him onstage next year during the tour.
During a new episode of “The Howard Stern Show”, Sammy Hagar talked about his next year’s summer tour along with bassist Michael Anthony, iconic guitarist Joe Satriani, and drummer Jason Bonham.
Describing the tour, the setlists of which will include Van Halen songs from different eras, Hagar extended a hand to drummer Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth to join the band on stage (via Blabbermouth):
“It’s time. Nobody else is gonna do it. If Dave (Lee Roth) goes out, he can’t sing my stuff. But we can do a few of the early Van Halen songs. I have no problem with that; I did it when I was in Van Halen. This is really a celebration of all that, and we are the only ones who can do it.
“We’re gonna invite every musician in every town. First of all, whenever you play, if there’s a guitar player in town, no matter what city it is, they come out to see Joe, just like they used to for Eddie (Van Halen).
” So if we’ve got other guitar players, we’ll get them involved, other singers, get them involved.
”If Alex Van Halen wants to jump up, if David Lee Roth wants to come out and join us, come on, motherf**ker. You are welcome. This is about Van Halen.”
