Sammy Hagar

Rock star Sammy Hagar speaks at the Fontana Days Festival in 2013.  Hagar is now promoting his High Tide Beach Party and Car Show, which will be held in Huntington Beach in September.

Sammy Hagar is asking the question: “Who’s ready to go back to the beach?”

The answer is a lot of people, and many of them are looking forward to Hagar's second High Tide Beach Party and Car Show, which will be held on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach.

Due to the strong demand for tickets to his inaugural party in 2018, the High Tide Beach Party will return this year as a two-day celebration on Sept. 28 and 29, with double the music and cars.

Headlining the 2019 event are Sammy Hagar and The Circle (featuring Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson) with special guest Richie Sambora, the Beach Boys, Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe, Night Ranger, Blue Öyster Cult, Extreme, Steel Panther, Tony Lewis from The Outfield, Patty Smyth and Scandal, and more.

Hagar, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, grew up in Fontana.

"We knew we were onto something special when we started planning the High Tide Beach Party with Sammy Hagar last year,” said event producer John Oakes of Freeze Management. “But we were blown away when it sold out in advance the first year. We learned a lot and this year we’re coming back to make the party bigger and better, aimed at enhancing the attendees’ experience.”

The car show will be presented by Mickey Thompson Tires and Wheels and will feature a large collection of luxury, exotic, European, custom, classic, movie and hyper cars, curated by MuscleKingz.

Some of the automobiles shown will include Hagar’s personal Ferrari BB512i from his “I Can’t Drive 55” music video, Viciousstang -- the twin-charged “Million Dollar Mustang,” as well as one of the legendary “General Lee” 1969 Dodge Chargers used in the original filming of the "Dukes of Hazzard" TV series, owned by Chrome Cars.
