“I've been celebrating my birthday in Cabo for almost 30 years and I couldn't begin to pick a favorite year,” said Sammy Hagar. “I’ve had hundreds of friends who’ve come down to perform and party. Each year is packed with so many insane collaborations and moments that I'm just happy that the rest of the world can finally get in -- and celebrate alongside us as it unfolds on the big screen.”

He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Van Halen in 2007, is also a #1 New York Times bestselling author, host of the TV series “Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar,” restaurateur and spirits entrepreneur.
