Local fans of ’80s Rock will get to hear “I Can’t Drive 55," “Here I Go Again" and "Sister Christian" performed by the original artists all in one night this summer.

Sammy Hagar and his band The Circle — featuring bassist Michael Anthony (his bandmate in Van Halen), drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson — are coheadlining a tour with Whitesnake that will swing by Riverbend Music Center on Aug. 8. The tour also features special guests Night Ranger.

Tickets ($29.50-$350) go on sale this Friday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. via

Hagar announced the tour over the weekend when he appeared at the MusiCares Person Of The Year event.

"Whitesnake's on the tour with us, and Night Ranger," Hagar said to People. "It's kind of Cassic Rock. When you've got two singers like David Coverdale and my voice… we've got the same fans."

The acts released a tour announcement video this morning.
