Sammy Hagar & The Circle are joining forces with George Thorogood & The Destroyers for the "Crazy Times 2022 Tour." Hagar said in the tour announcement, "A tour this size has been a long time coming and it’s definitely going to be worth the wait. 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."

As of now, the 14-date trek is set to begin on June 10th at Bridgeport, Connecticut's Hartford HealthCare Amphitheater and winds down on September 10th at Irvine, California's FivePoint Amphitheatre. Tickets go on on sale Friday, January 28th at 10 a.m. local time via LiveNation.com

Along with Hagar and Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, the Circle is rounded out by guitarist Vic Johnson, and the great Jason Bonham, son of late-Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham.

Sammy Hagar has long professed that his concerts are there for the sole purpose of entertaining his fans — nothing more and nothing less: ["We have a direction and a lifestyle and a way we want to live. It's, y'know, beach by day and dancing all night, basically, y'know. To me it's all about keeping my fans happy, giving them a little direction if I can find it for them and turning them on to anything I get turned onto, and that's it."] SOUNDCUE (:15 OC: . . . and that's it)

George Thorogood admitted to us that his musical mission in life really hasn't changed that much since he was a teenager: ["I ran into Peter Wolf a couple of years ago and he said, 'George, I'm gettin' my dream together.' I said, 'What's that?' He goes, 'I'm puttin' together a new record, I'm gonna get a good band, I'm goin' on the road.' I said 'New dream?' I said, 'You've been dreaming about that since high school, so have I.' I don't care how many gold records you have, that's always what's in the works — another record, another tour, and say, 'Ah, forget about what I did last year, wait'll you see me next time!'"] SOUNDCUE (:19 OC: . . . me next time)
