Former Montrose and Van Halen man Sammy Hagar recently had to cancel his High Tide Beach Party at Huntington Beach at the last minute because of city/permit issues, which was a shame, but fans can maybe calm themselves with this intimate appearance at the Grammy Museum. Just prior to that festival-that-wasn’t, Hagar told us that, “We’re planning another real tour. I found that I can still do it, and at my age I don’t know how much longer I’ll still be good. As long as I have that, I need to work more. I’m not gonna charge people to come and see me and not be excellent. And I’m still excellent. So I’ll book another tour with the Circle, and maybe release a live album. I’m stepping it up. I don’t need money, fortune or fame so let me go out and do this for all the right reasons while I still can. That’s the way I started — because I love it.” Good to know.

Sammy Hagar plays at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 19 at the Grammy Museum.
