During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s ‘Trunk Nation,’ former Van Halen singer and current The Circle member, Sammy Hagar, attended the radio show with Michael Anthony and talked about the possibilities of postponing their U.S. tour with Night Ranger.
The Circle is a British-American rock band founded in London in 2014, including former Montrose and Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar, original Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham, and guitarist Vic Johnson.
The U.S. tour is planned to kick off July 9 in West Palm Beach, Florida at iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre and will end September 20 in Chula Vista, California at North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre.
Hagar and Anthony were asked if their tour could be postponed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, which is currently affecting the whole world, Sammy said that there is a possibility of delaying the first leg of the tour.
Here’s what Sammy Hagar stated:
“Well, Live Nation says until further notice, they’re just leaving things as they are. But there’s a possibility of it postponing the first leg, and then we’ll look at the second leg.”
“The good thing about our tour is we’re in three legs — we’re July, August, September. So if July gets canceled, or postponed, we move it to October, and then we can start in August. We can keep stacking it around. Then we get into the winter, and we’d have to go indoors or something.
Listen, I’m gonna get out there and play. Otherwise, I’m gonna go crazy. And I don’t want Mikey breathing down my neck: ‘Hey, Sambo, hey, when are we going out? Hey, Sambo, when is the next gig?'”
Michael Anthony said:
“My wife is breathing down my neck to get my ass out of the house. You know, the only thing that’s really crazy, though, now is I’m starting to read in the trades and stuff like that, they talk about when everything starts to calm down and they’re letting people out again or whatever, it might take a while for the concert business to build back up, because a lot of people still might be kind of gun shy, so to speak, to go to a concert and be around a bunch of people like that.”
