Sammy Hagar sings about what he knows best on his 15th studio album; parties, beaches, and love. It’s safe to say the hedonistic mix Hagar and his band The Wabos conjure up is working. The album’s first two singles “Let Me Take You There” and “Sam I Am” both spent more than two months at number one on Classic Rock radio.

11 new studio tracks featuring Sammy Hagar and The Wabos drummer David Lauser, guitarist Vic Johnson, and bassist Mona. The album mixes eclectic styles that range from the hard-driving hits “Sam I Am” and “Mexico,” to the roots rocker “The Way We Live,” and the country-rock ballad “Halfway.” “Livin’ It Up” also spotlights two covers; a boozy take on Bob Dylan’s “Rainy Day Women” and country superstar Toby Keith‘s hit “I Love This Bar.”

Hagar’s obsession with life where the land ends and the party begins bubbles to the top on several tracks, including “Sailing” and “Livin’ On A Coastline”. Founder of Cabo Wabo a premium tequila and a cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Hagar sounds at home behind the bar mixing up a love potion on “One Sip,” a track he cowrote with contemporary-country hitmaker Kenny Chesney.

This summer Sammy Hagar and The Wabos bring a little taste of Cabo to amphitheatres across America as they tour to support “Livin’ It Up.” Each show will feature the Cabo Wabo Village complete with bikini girls, body builders, beach volleyball, mariachi bands, Cabo street food vendors, and, of course, a killer bar.

The live shows will include Hagar playing his solo hits with the Wabos followed by a set of Van Halen songs performed by The Other Half, a group featuring Sammy Hagar and Van Halen bassist, Michael Anthony.

Quintessential hard rock lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter, Sammy Hagar first rose to fame with the band Montrose before embarking on his solo career. For almost a decade Hagar enjoyed major solo success with a string of albums featuring classic hits such as “Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy,” “There’s Only One Way To Rock,” and “I Can’t Drive 55.” Sammy Hagar then joined Van Halen, and his years as their flamboyant frontman took him to a new level of superstardom, including the Grammy winning album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge.
