I agree... Cant wait to get down there.. I'm parking lot bound and happy!! If it turns out I get in ..Cool. If not, I get 10 days in paradise,with 10 trips to the cantina or more...Who knows,I've been down when Sammy "just stops in".
It will take alot more than bad seating to wipe my Cabo smile away..
See you all there...

erink037's picture

I totally agree with you! This was the best thing they could have done. I too have in the past been on that sidewalk and lost alot of my vacation time b/c of it... Yes, with the system not working did suck but if everyone would have been patient enough you eventually gotten tixs. I did.. Yippie.... SO stop whining and complaining.. If you are a true REDHEAD you should be happy for the ones who did get tickets and for the ones who have never been to the Cabo Wabo and are going.. Thats great!!! Hats off to all that got tixs... New Cabo Virgins and returning Wabos... Can't wait to see everyone.

No loose wristbands, you have to show up with your guest.

I am going with my wife but for single guys with an extra ticket I am sure there will be lots of young ladies around who would be happy to get that extra ticket!


Iowa-Doug's picture

Looks like the will call ticket procedure should be good and keep scalpers outta there...

johns062's picture

Got two tickets for the 13th!

See you all in Cabo for some Waborita's!

Quick question.

I purchased tickets for the show on the 9th and I received a RR receipt. My man purchased tickets for the 8th but has not received his RR receipt. He did get his Paypal receipt though. Will this suffice when it comes time for Will Call? Mine did go to my Spam box in my email so maybe he accidentally deleted his. Either way we are there the 7th to the 11th at Sunset Beach! See all you Redheads in Cabo!

Yes Sammy it was a crazy Monday, but Thank's nice to know that we will be able to see a show or two while in Cabo!

Have a safe trip to Houston and we will see you tomorrow!!

I can't wait to see all of the Texas Redheads and meet some ones!!

Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Birthday Bash Ticket Will Call Procedure and Information

Redheads....What a crazy Monday!!...What Next...

Redheads......As the dust settles from a crazy "RED" Monday here are a few bits of information so we can clarify a few issues......We have over 119,000 hits on the site during the three hours of ticketing, tickets were sold out in less than five minutes per show.

Verifying ticket purchasing.....We are now in the process in verifying all ticket purchases. Those who purchased more than two tickets (and there were a few) those extra tickets will be canceled and refunded. Tickets are non transferable and non refundable......All sales are final and mentioned in previous e-mails.

Will Call in Cabo.....This is how the system will work, on each show day, we will have a will call table set up at 2pm. You will need to bring your Redrocker receipt with confirmation number as well as a photo ID matching the reservation name along with your guest (NO EXCEPTIONS). We will have a computer available to verify any questionable purchases, so realize that any issues will need to be verified by our Paypal account....Once verified, the person whose name the reservation is under and their guest will receive their wristband. All wristbands will be placed on you and your guest, no loose wristbands will be given away.

More details will follow, but we just wanted to give you all a heads up on the procedure

See ya in Cabo!

Ahh...SuperBowl Bash...what a great time that was and cheap...saw Sammy for 3 days straight and it was only 38.00 for all 3 nights. My husband & I will always remember the fun time we had there.

brianc037's picture

Hey Guys I am sorry. I have done Vegas, Tahoe, SuperBowl Bash and plan vacations around my multi show Sammy fix. I got an email announcing the ticket sales from but it never requested only buying one show. I have read the comments on here about only buying one show but that was never communicated to me. I to got first three shows and then got kicked out of the system after they put tickets to 10-13 in my cart and I was paying. Just wanted to say sorry.

I think you've summed it up the best.~ Ami

nannettee078's picture

I think one of the reasons Sammy did this is because many many people suggested it. So it's done and I'm happy to have gotten tix for the birthday show. I'm sure Sammy is hearing or reading these and thinking Jesus, I can't win!!!! I do feel bad that some people did not get tickets. But there will be a way for dinner shows ( or maybe even "150 overflow" ???) Let's all enjoy him while he is still rockin these shows, he's doing it to keep us happy & the wabos workin and of course he loves to do it! I love you for all that you do SAMMY !!! And thanks to the RR team too.

See you in CABO

amis030's picture

It does crack me up a little when people say " they waited in the line all night " and didn't get tickets for the Cabo shows. What line were you in? 3am/4am till 8am~( It was fun) if you got in line at 6am/7am, then you were way too far back to get wristbands.

Iowa-Doug's picture

Hey Craig, thats the beauty of our country and world, that we have the right to state our opinions... I did'nt like the ticket distribution and you did. It's all good tho, cuz we're goin to Cabo...Hey guy's the tickets are out, let's move on...
All the complainin' ain't gonna change the system this year, so Let's just live with it...There's always next year to find a better way.

Street Rat and Damn Proud of it...

I'm one of the people who wanted the sales on line and I'm glad they did it! And this is after I got shut out for two shows! I was lucky too get the 13th and will try for the 11th Dinner tix. I think it's great some of you were able too get tix for every show! Some of the people on here, while there is no doubt everyone here are very passionate about Sammy act as if Sammy owes you or all of us this Birthday Bash. WRONG!!! He does this because he loves it not because he has too. Some RedHeads on here talk like this bash is owed too them instead of just enjoying the experience and whatever show you get into! How much longer do you think Sammy is going too keep doing this? Hopefully a few more years! So instead of Bitching and complaining about the process of however Tix are distributed, why don't we all try too enjoy The RedRocker as long as he is willing too perform for us and grow up a little!!!! RedHeads and RedRocker For Life!!!! Oct. 7th is not too far away!!!! Peace.....

This is my 9th year to Cabo for the B-day bash, and have been able to get into every show. Not this year.
The new system SUCKS!!!

Ed Violick's picture

I've been going to the bash for over ten years. Waited on line every night and got in every night. Now they decide to sell tickets(a system I am totally against). I bought tickets to every show. Now I'm being labeled a greedy redhead! I'm not the person you should be mad at. The people at fault are the people who persisted in wanting ticket sales and who complained about waiting on line. How naive it was to think that with that many people trying to get so few tickets the system and server wouldn't fail. I'm going every night but would gladly wait on line next year instead of this system.

RedVoodoo's picture

There is only a name on one ticket... and since they can be picked up several hours prior to the show, at least one of those tickets can be given to someone else... I'm guessing all of the tickets will be able to be sold/traded/given to someone else... the key was only being able to buy two per show, and having to actually pick them up in Cabo.

Pretty disappointing to have our tickets in the shopping cart, directed to pay now...and the page break, crashed, couldn't refresh, lost it all! 7th year in a row to the Bash, and now no tickets available, we are so bummed! Did anyone else have problems checking out?

Iowa-Doug's picture

Just a quick question and I'm outta here...
On the ticket info email, it states that tix are non refundable, NON TRANSFERABLE so on so forth... not sure but wouldnt NON TRANSFERABLE mean something like you can't give, sale or whatever to ANYBODY else??? Just wonderin'

johnv071's picture

Well stated UpFrontFanatic. I also have stood in line many times and not gotten tickets. Last year I stood in the dinner ticket line almost 24 hours and got the last 2 tickets to the show on the 12th. Yes I did meet some cool people but I really can't justify waiting that long and having to worry about getting in. (I think my ulcer from that has finally healed). We arrived 1 minute before the person behind us did. That really is hard to accept. We were lucky. This was great of Sammy to do and has given my son and girlfriend the opportunity to see Sammy on his bday for the first time. That's one of the things Sammy wanted to do so we are thankful. No more having to worry about how many people come out of the hotel across the street in the morning because their place in line was being held by others. No more worrying about how many people will get out of a taxi in the morning becasue they paid a local to hold their spot in line. No more breathing the exhaust fumes of vehicles because the main road was diverted by the side road by the cantina because of construction. This is absoultely fantastic having tickets ahead of time. And for only the 2nd time my wife and I get to attend more than one show. It's going to be great to plan other things to do during the day and not be tired. It's going to be an awesome week in Cabo. I don't know if the future will be the same with tickets but I can tell you this redhead is extremely thankful of the opportunity this year and the luck I had in getting the tickets to the shows I wanted to go to. thanks RR

In reading the comments on 'system fail' concerning people already trading/selling tickets---isn't this system a GOOD thing? It's(as someone else droned on about)RedHeads helping other Redheads? If you already know what shows you have and have a friend that you've met over the years in need...isn't it GREAT to be able to reach out and sell/trade with a fellow fan? I, for one, know-beyond the shadow of a doubt- that if I found myself with an extra ticket, I'd contact and sell to someone I know in a heartbeat. I'm sure none of us would 'scalp'(at least I'd like to think they're all being negotiated at face value)--yet we all know they were 'sold' all along, and they've been free to us until now. I'm one of the lucky ones that had no issue with the system--and yes, I have tix to mulitple shows. Do I feel the need to share?? NOPE-sorry, but I've been there numerous times before and not made it into shows even after 'street time'--so bashing the new system and those that were fortunate is no different than hating on those that spend an entire week on an air mattress to assure their place inside the Cabo Wabo. There are some really cool folks out there that help out whenever they can--I'm sure the same will hold true this year. It will work out as it always does...some are lucky and some rock the parking lot. :)

As far as 'bring back the line'....'the line is great'....seriously?? That line is a nightmare--and other than meeting some really great people, it's a PAIN! If you walk around your hotel, and/or visit some of the other great local bars(because you're not wiped from sleepin' on the street for 5days!)--you'll have the same chance to meet those same fanatics and you won't be exhausted, dirty and irritated or in a hurry to get your air mattress back on the street. :) And let's not forget--you all can still do the 'Cabo Campground' for dinner tix--I'd bet that some will do that even tho they were lucky yesterday and that'll put a few more tix out in the universe for sale/trade.

Thanks again to REDhead is totally happy and who knows? Maybe next year, online ticketing will be improved--but I'd wager that even then, some will not be lucky enough to get thru and we'll be back at the beginning of this timeless debate.

I never minded camping out for tickets but since I have had two back surgeries, it has not been possible to do. I am glad I was able to buy my tickets so I can see a show again.

I got the 8th 9th and 11th See ya in Cabo Thanks Sammy

bowmansu's picture

Got tickets for October 8 and 9! Will miss the line but glad to be there however it happened! See you at Land's End.

FREDU's picture

Hey we have 2 Tickets for the 13th. We would rather go on the 11th. The problem is I need 4 tickets for the 11th. I am willing to give up my 2 tickets for the 13th if i can score 4 tickets for the 11th. Anyone interested??????

FREDU's picture

I agree! We are going to Cabo with another couple. I REALLY tried to get tickets for the 4 of us for the 11th. I did however score 2 tickets for the 13th. Now we have to figure out how are friends are going to get tickets. I do not think it is fair that GREEDY people have to get tickets to all 4 shows. Give other people a chance!

amis030's picture

Did you get any tickets Jeanette? My husband and I see and talk to you at the shows in Cabo and Tahoe, hoe to see you in Cabo~ Ami

cheryl s's picture

Thank you Sammy and the staff for the wild ticket ride! I was able to get tickets for one show. Now I only have to stand in line for one other show. At least I know I am going to one show and I am very grateful. Thanks for selling the tickets. That gives me time to do some great daytime Cabo fun. See you all in Cabo. And thanks again!!

johnt042's picture

What's with all of the "Will anyone trade tix with me" or "I need extra tix can anyone help me out". I thought that one of the main rules for selling tickets this year was to make sure that the person who bought them was the one who used them (ala show ID, etc.) and also to keep them out of scalpers hands. If people are going to trade/swap then it kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it? Plus, judging from all of the people that were shut out because of connection issues and how quickly the tickets sold out, it is my opinion that selling tickets is a big fat fail. Bring back the line next year.

debrac066's picture

i'll piggy back on that request also.i need one miracle for little ole' me. im on my own to the show if i get my wish-hope hope ; ) thanks debbie carlin =

debrac066's picture

words where never so true,amen ja

Redlover's picture

Congrats to those who scored tix for a show.


wally06's picture

I was lucky enough to get tix for the 11th and 13th. Am also relieved as im coming from Australia and had already spent thousands on airfares. I will miss the line where i made many
new friends in April. Hope to catch up with eveyone.

Harleymomma08's picture

Trade - there are several of us going to Cabo this year. It will only be my 2nd time but the girls that I am going with have been going for yrs!!! I just traded my extra ticket for 2 shows and got tickets for the 2 shows I did not get tickets for??? I am so happy right now! I know if you have extra tickets someone will be happy to trade with you...Best of luck

cabowaborita5150's picture

The wife & I got tickets for the 11th & 13th. We were planning on just going to one show until this afternoon when she said we could do both shows. We will see everyone in Cabo.

chris_scott's picture

Well, 4 of us are going the 11th and 2 others got tickets for the 13th. We may be looking to trade some tickets.
Anyway, let's all have a RED ROCKTOBER in CABO!!!!!!

I think the big problem was that the info was released to the general public & not just us here at the site! Get this, we have some workman putting in new flooring in the house & one of the guys asked me what I was working on! I told him & he said "Oh yeah, I heard about that on the radio last week!! He isn't a Sammy fan one bit & he knew about it all!

could be the lack of CWT... lol. Diane was sippin on some this weekend and got our tix without too much trouble...

craigt085's picture

True, VERY TRUE! How about a hint? I Know it wasn't my computer, maybe it's because I've had no CaboWabo in about a month!?!?
