A Beautiful Tribute To Our Modern-Day Heroes
Sammy Hagar and the Circle returned to live stage on May 23 at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater in Key West, FL. They kicked off their set with “There’s Only One Way to Rock” and powered through a series of hits from Hagar’s career including solo material and songs from Van Halen. They also threw in covers like Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” and David Bowie’s “Heroes.”
Hagar told the crowd, “I just wanna say it really is cool to see things opening up and getting back to normal.”
He also talked about last year’s Lockdown Sessions and before launching into “Heroes,” he went on to pay tribute to frontliners who risked their lives throughout the pandemic.
“We started feeling really, really grateful for those people that stayed on the money,” he said. “The firemen, the policemen, the mailman, the grocery store attendant, the plumber that came to my house and fixed my fucking toilet during COVID.”
“Those people became kind of like the real heroes in life,” he added. “Everybody’s got these heroes that are just bigger than life, well it seems like during 2020 some regular people stepped up and became heroes.” Check out the videos below.
