Formed in 2014, the critically-acclaimed supergroup takes fans on a musical journey through rock history, with a set list spanning four decades of Hagar’s hits from MONTROSE, his solo career, VAN HALEN and beyond — and with Bonham on board, they also tear into a few LED ZEPPELIN classics — thrilling audiences and critics alike with their live concerts.
