Van Halen Acoustic "Cabo Wabo" - Happy Anniversary Cabo Wabo Cantina

April 17, 2016 by sammyhagar

"It's hard to believe it's been 26 years! Some of the most fun I've had in my life has been since the opening of the Cabo Wabo. I just spent a week down there celebrating the anniversary because I couldn't be there today... played the Cantina three times! The most fun is when nobody knows, I just walk out there, always a great feeling makes everybody so high. You can do no wrong on stage after that ha ha.

The discovery of a place like Cabo and the creation of the Cantina has created a lifestyle for me and hundreds of thousands of fans. Its one of those dreams I never dreamt would come true. I don't know where I would be in my life or how I would even dress if it weren't for that lifestyle change.

I thank the fans and the staff at the Cantina from the bottom my heart, Michael Anthony, Eddie and Alex, and my partners Marco, Jorge, and all the staff (some that have been there 26 years) - it's awesome! thank you, thank you, thank you!" - Sammy


The Cabo Wabo Cantina opened its doors in April 1990 and Van Halen was there to throw a monster opening party. This is a clip of an acoustic Van Halen performance of the song "Cabo Wabo".


Check out this clip from MTV when the Cabo Wabo Cantina had just opened!
