Legendary rocker Sammy Hagar celebrated the third anniversary of his successful Cabo Wabo Cantina at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood with a free concert Saturday night.

Hundreds of fans lined up early morning to get tickets at the Strip-side cantina. Hagar joined the house band Cabo Uno, from the flagship restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, just before 10 p.m. After welcoming fans to the party, Hagar launched into his hit “I Can’t Drive 55.”

Hagar attributed the success of Cabo Wabo Cantina to his fans. “For Cabo Wabo to survive in Las Vegas on the Strip is because of y’all,” he said. “The Redheads rock this place.”

With the show projected on Miracle Mile’s jumbo marquee on Las Vegas Boulevard, the Red Rocker performed for about an hour; the set list included “Mas Tequila,” “Eagles Fly” and the Van Halen hit “Why Can’t This Be Love.”

Hagar concluded by telling partygoers, “We’re giving you the keys. This place is yours now!” Before the performance, Hagar enjoyed his Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum with his wife Kari and mingled with fans. Thanks to contributing photographer Scott Harrison for his photo gallery.
