Sammy Hagar is getting the band back together! Well, sort of. A Van Halen tribute tour is set to begin next year but without some of the names you might expect. Former Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar will be joined by bassist Michael Anthony, guitarist Joe Satriani, and drummer Jason Bonham for The Best Of All Worlds tour.

Founding Van Halen drummer and brother of the late Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, Eddie’s son Wolfgang Van Halen, former Van Halen vocalist David Lee Roth, and Jason Newsted are not involved in the tour. Wolfgang previously performed as a part of Van Halen but now has his own band called Mammoth WVH, a nod to his father and uncle’s first band together called Mammoth.

Hagar shared about the new tour, “It’s crazy to think that it’ll be 20 years since Mikey and I played these songs with Van Halen on the 04′ Best Of Both Worlds tour. With Joe on board, we can take a deeper dive into those years. We’re going to touch on some hits from my entire career but seeing fans old and new really embrace the new collection set off something in Mikey and I. We were at my Birthday Bash in Cabo for my 76th and looked at each other and high fived, like ‘let’s do it.’ We pulled out a couple of them and it was an instant lovefest with the fans from our first riffs. The music we created is going to outlive us all. They deserve to be heard so it’s time we go out and serve the fans that music, while we still can.”

The new collection Hagar is referring to is a box set featuring all four of Hagar’s Van Halen albums called The Collection II. Check out the tour dates below.
