Sammy Hagar Planning Las Vegas Residency

Sammy Hagar is planning a Las Vegas residency. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the shows are tentatively set to begin in June at The Strat’s “Celestia” tent.

Hagar commented:

“I want to create the ultimate environment where I can throw the ultimate party, like I have done in Cabo for 30 years for my birthday, but at another time of year here in Las Vegas, which is really the party capital of the world. I hate to put Cabo second to anything, but I feel in this case it’s gotta take second place to Las Vegas.”

He also added:

“Everybody wants to do a residency, and people are doing residencies, but (what) I want to create with the Strat guys … is more than me going into a building and playing it. We want it to be more like an event, a place for fans to come in that’s a consistently cool place.”

Scorpions Planning Las Vegas Residency, Reveal Producer For New Album

During a recent interview with New Zealand’s “The Metal Bar”, Scorpions’ Matthias Jabs revealed that the band are planning to do a Las Vegas Residency next year. Prior to that, the group will be working on a new album with producer Greg Fidelman.

Jabs said the following:

“We’ve been writing some material before we went on tour, before we went on tour this summer. It’s always difficult to come up with stuff on tour. You get the inspiration, but to actually put it down, that’s a different story, when you travel every day. So we have songs — about 10, I guess — but we will have to do some more writing once this tour is over, and then prepare for the rehearsals and recordings right after our shows in New Zealand and a couple in Asia. So we will be back in early March. And we know that we work with the producer Greg Fidelman, who is known for doing METALLICA and SLIPKNOT and others, and he’s a great guy. And he came to visit in our studio in Hannover, Germany already. So the plan is to record until the first of July, where we have a residency in Las Vegas for a whole month. And then, during that time, we can either do the final touch-ups or mix. And then the album should come out in the fall of 2020. And then, of course, we go on the road again.”

He also added the following when asked about the group’s inspiration for new material:

“It works slightly different than in the early days. In the early days, I took the guitar and came up with some great riffs and was excited about that. And we took it from there. Today, almost every riff has been played already by myself and by others. What else do you wanna do? So the approach is slightly different — it’s more about the song and the melody and even the lyrics, sometimes, they could be the inspiration. And you do the riff and all the guitar work, you do that later on. Not always, but it’s not the main source for songwriting anymore, as it used to be in the beginning, when we were so excited. ‘Oh, listen to this new riff. It’s great. Let’s turn it into a song.’ It’s a little bit the other way around now.”
