Sammy Hagar, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, is set to embark on the highly anticipated “The Best Of All Worlds” 2024 tour. Joining Hagar on this musical journey are seasoned rock performers and longtime bandmates Michael Anthony (bass, backing vocals) and Jason Bonham (drums). The exciting addition of Joe Satriani, renowned as one of the world’s premier guitar players, was unveiled on Nov 14 during SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show.”
The tour, produced by Live Nation and featuring special guests LOVERBOY, is a 28-date extravaganza starting on July 13 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and concluding on August 31 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Reflecting on the upcoming tour, Hagar expressed his astonishment at the 20-year milestone since he and Mikey last played these songs with VAN HALEN on the 2004 ‘Best Of Both Worlds’ tour. With Joe joining the lineup, the band is eager to delve deeper into those years, promising to touch on hits from Hagar’s entire career.
The positive response from both longtime and new fans to the new collection at his Birthday Bash in Cabo, where they spontaneously played a couple of songs, fueled their enthusiasm.
Hagar emphasized the timelessness of the music they created, asserting that it will outlive them all. He sees it as a duty to share these songs with fans while they still can.
The tour follows the success of “The Collection II,” a box set released on October 6. This compilation features newly remastered versions of the four consecutive #1 albums released during the Hagar era of VAN HALEN: “5150” (1986), “OU812” (1988), “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” (1991), and “Balance” (1995). Notably, the tour will revisit hits that haven’t been played live since the band’s 2004 reunion tour. With Anthony, Satriani, and Bonham having collaborated in various phases of Hagar’s career, spanning VAN HALEN, CHICKENFOOT, and THE CIRCLE, fans can anticipate a setlist encompassing the biggest rock anthems of the last four decades, including “Finish What Ya Started,” “5150,” “Your Love is Driving Me Crazy,” “Best of Both Worlds,” “Poundcake,” “Sexy Little Thing,” “One Way To Rock,” “Right Now,” “Good Enough,” “Eagles Fly,” and more. Adding to the musical prowess, legendary Australian musician Rai Thistlethwayte will contribute on keyboard and backing vocals.
This tour represents a rare opportunity for fans to witness this band of brothers deliver one of the most legendary and hits-packed live shows of their career. Don’t miss the chance to be part of “The Best Of All Worlds” 2024 tour.
