Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar today announced the first dates of his “Crazy Times” North American summer amphitheater tour. Hagar will be joined by his best-selling rock supergroup The Circle, featuring fellow Van Halen alum and Rock Hall of Fame inductee, Michael Anthony; Grammy-award winning drummer, Jason Bonham; and Vic Johnson, Hagar’s longtime guitar virtuoso. Special guests George Thorogood & The Destroyers will also join the entire tour, which is produced by Live Nation and presented by Hagar’s portfolio of spirits — Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co., Santo Tequila and Beach Bar Rum. 

The “Crazy Times” tour will make a Salt Lake City stop at USANA Amphitheatre on August 30, 2022.

The Circle and I are super excited and ready to throw the party of the year with George Thorogood. We’re going to take the music and party to a whole new level— ‘Crazy Times’ is an understatement.” Sammy Hagar & The Circle have quickly established themselves as one of the most emphatic and exciting live acts on the road today, seamlessly ripping through career-spanning hits from Hagar’s solo years, Montrose, Van Halen, The Circle, and with Bonham on drums a Led Zeppelin track or two.

With an ever-changing setlist that draws from more than five decades of iconic rock anthems, fans will experience the excitement of live music with songs including, “I Can’t Drive 55,” “Right Now,” “There’s Only One Way To Rock,” “Mas Tequila,” “Why Can’t This Be Love,” “Heavy Metal,” “Your Love is Driving Me Crazy,” and many more. Special guests George Thorogood and The Destroyers are set to turn up the rock-blues vibes as they celebrate 45 years in music. With a catalog of classic hits that includes “Who Do You Love,” “Move It On Over,” “Bad To The Bone,” “I Drink Alone” and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” it’s a pairing for the rock party record books.
