The new season kicks off as Hagar heads to the world-famous Fillmore in San Francisco for a star-studded premiere from his fourth annual concert benefit, Acoustic-4-A-Cure featuring performances and conversations with Foo Fighters Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, Mick Fleetwood, Bob Weir, and groundbreaking axmen Steve Vai and Vic Johnson. Additional season three highlights include Sammy’s sit-down with the iconic voice of The Who, Roger Daltrey, at Lake Tahoe where the pair reminisce about playing the 1973 Charlton Festival (Apr. 15); a trip to Denver’s landmark Twist And Shout Record Store with Canadian chart-toppers Nickelback (April 22); and Sammy’s visit with hit-making Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones in Austin, TX, featuring a pit stop at the Circuit of the Americas racetrack (Apr. 29).
The road trip continues on May 6, as Sammy revisits the site of the groundbreaking L.A. Metal scene with Judas Priest legend Rob Halford, and acclaimed supergroup Kings Of Chaos, featuring Matt Sorum, Billy Duffy, and Steve Stevens (May 6); followed by an acoustic session with GRAMMY®-winning singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan, and rock power couple Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo (May 13).

The season comes to a close with an all-access pass to Sammy’s epic birthday bash on the beach in Cabo San Lucas on June 24.
