Later that year Sammy enlisted him for his new supergroup, The Circle, along with Jason Bonham on drums and Michael Anthony on bass. Sammy Hagar & The Circle’s 2019 debut album “Space Between,” was lauded by critics and scored a multi-category No. 1 album on the Billboard charts. Their second album, “Crazy Times,” dropped in September 2022, and debuted at No. 6 on Billboard’s Top Album chart. On tour, the band quickly established themselves as one of the most emphatic and exciting live acts on the road, seamlessly ripping through Hagar’s career-spanning hits and their new original material.Stage RED Theater is located in downtown Fontana at 8463 Sierra Avenue. Previously known as Center Stage Theater, Fontana’s City Hall announced the closure of the historic single-screen theater in 2022, promising a modernized venue that would also carry the influence of one of the city’s most famous sons, Sammy Hagar. The City enlisted Ideation Design Group, a longtime venue design partner of Hagar’s to spearhead the venue’s extensive remodel and design. Their two-year, multi-million dollar relaunch is set to deliver an unparalleled live music experience which aims to be a cornerstone of the city’s cultural renaissance. Set to kick off with a highly anticipated performance by Sammy Hagar, Stage RED Theater will offer guests not only top-notch performances but also a taste of Hagar’s award-winning portfolio of spirits including Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, a partnership with Rick Springfield, Santo Spirits, a tequila collaboration with Guy Fieri, Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. and Red Rocker Brewing Co.Event Details:
