Sammy Hagar and his band The Circle has sat down with Radio.Com’s official YouTube channel yesterday and they have talked about their recently released album named ‘Lockdown 2020’ and if it was successful financially.
As you might already remember, The Circle features legendary musicians like Jason Bonham, Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony & Vic Johnson, and the band has been originally founded back in 2014 in Miami.
After releasing their latest studio album named ‘Space Between,’ the band has broken their silence with ‘Lockdown 2020’ that features eleven new tracks recorded virtually during the band’s popular lockdown sessions which began during the coronavirus outbreak.
In his latest interview, Sammy shared his satisfaction after the Catalina Island Pay-Per-View concert but he also added that the show was not successful financially.
Here is what he said:
“Agency is trying to find ways to do [more shows]. The drive-in movie theater thing, that didn’t appeal to me. I couldn’t do it. My fans are crazy. So we did the Catalina Island thing, where we said, ‘Well, let’s have a boat-in and see how that works.’
And that was cool, but it was so expensive. [Laughs] I mean, you wanna talk about paying to play. It’s, like, man. We had to build a stage, we had to bring production — everything — on the Catalina.
We had to stay there a week, building everything out, and we did a pay-per-view, and it was successful, but it was not financially successful. But that wasn’t the idea — the idea was to finish up my birthday bash and get it done.”
