i thought the show rocked wish they were all outdoor the trick is to get a spot up front and hold on drinking just makes you have to go to the bathroom were you end up loosing your spot

LOVE the Sammy Hagar Birthday Bash at the Cabo Wabo.

In 2011, we were only able to make the actual 10/13 show which was outside. The sound was rather poor and the show was not at all intimate.

SAMMY- PLEASE DO ALL INDOOR SHOWS! The venue is too great to play outside on the street.

Hope to make it next year. Did I hear Sammy may do New Years Eve 2013 at the Cabo?

Keep Rockin' Sammy!

Would love to have an OU812 and 5150 night next year. Hope we can find out what the focus of each show will be so we can make sure we get tickets to the right shows!

Sammy you make my blood just pump!!! All I have to do is just hear the first lick of a song and were off and running. I've recently become good friends with a co-worker of mine, who at the age of 28 had never been to a concert.(I know can u believe it??). Well until now-- I have made it my goal as a rocker to see that she get's educated. I mean it's my duty!!! We are from the "D". We have since gone to Bob Seger and in Aug drove every-one crazy @ wk about seeing u w/ Kid Rock @ Comerica Park in Detroit. I had her so pumped about seeing you that we couldn't see straight!!(litterally!!). Unfortunately our tickets were the second night which got horribly rained out w/a massive storm after only like 3 songs. That SUCKS!!!! I hope to have the chance again to turn her into a new redhead. When are you coming back to Detroit???? We need some hot rockin SAMMY!!Miss U

What a great time at the concert. I tried to get tickets to the three shows before the bday bash but no luck. Thanks to my wonderful fiance she made some friends with some redheads and three hours before the last show we scored dinner tickets. Cost 300.00 but was well worth it. We were right in front of the stage and I even threw my detroit tigers hat on stage and sammy put it on micheal anthony. awsome show.. can't wait till next year.. mas tequila redheads

Last week was my first time to the Bash but not my last as you still Rock! First saw you in 1976 and all through the 80's at The Texas Jams and everytime you come to Houston. Loved the Chickenfoot set and seeing you outside topped off a great week in Cabo. Loved the book, it really took me back, stay cool and healthy and see you next year my friend!

This was our first time at a BB and it was awesome! We would have preferred to see Sammy indoors because of the heat, but the show rocked anyways. Met lots of nice, crazy Redheads from all over (we're from Calif) and had a blast at the party after the show. Would definitely go again...maybe next year if we can score tickets. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAMMY - YOU'RE AMAZING (AND SEXY, TOO)!!!

SOOOOOOO BUMMED!!!!! Have been down for the Bash several years and never liked sleeping on the sidewalk, but to go through the hassle and expense of buying tickets and to MISS THE that really sucked!!! :(
Things really should have been handled differently with the oversell screw-up and time change!

The show was outside for the first time and my wife and I were looking forward to that. But in reality it was not a great place to have it becasue we could not see. We ended up leaving early. if they decide to do another show outsdie then they need to work on the location and improvements so people can see better. other than that it was a great week again and all the other shows inside were awesome.

I hate to say it but the birthday bash really sucked this year. Paid $110.00 and bragged to our friends about the Cantina birthday bash and they paid $110 and went with us and it sucked. It was outside....could not even see Sammy and he only played for 1 hour and 20 minutes! Everyone was SO DISAPPOINTED! I cannot believe how unhappy we all were. Everyone in the crowd was unhappy! People were cussing and leaving and he actually started at 7 so people getting there for the 9:30 planned starting were really pissed.
