Sammy loses his edge
Verified purchase
.... After viewing this DVD, he has lost the edge he displayed on the tours of MTM and RV. Sammy continues to be a great showman - but his choice of changing the arrangement on "Cabo Wabo" was a very poor decision. You can tell by the crowd's reaction they weren't pleased either. I think that is the only show I have ever seen where the crowd didn't yell,"You go there once, you be there twice." They were stunned. The intimate feeling of being at the Cabo Wabo to start the show was what set Sammy apart from everyone else. Equally frustrating was that Sammy laughed in the worst possible time when signing "Deeper Kinda Love". Sammy has always been my "fav" - always. No opening act - no need to warm up the crowd. Because it's Sammy. The second disk with the interview was very insightful to many of the areas that Sammy has either not discussed in interviews before or touched on lightly. Too bad this DVD wasn't released on the Red Voodoo tour - that would have been magical. ....

One good DVD, but the interview is crap!!!
Verified purchase
Sammy Hagar in Chicago is one hell of a show!!! but the other DVD is just plain crap, okay I must say it has a lot of interesting stuff: Sammy point of view on the web, Sammy's departure from Van Halen, Sammy's hobbies etc. But heck!!! I want the music!!!
Strange this DVD is a cool one to get, the show is amazing, with the "Waboritas" a guitarist that makes us wonder if Eddie Van Halen has an afro american brother somewhere, because this guy gives the same guitar power as the famous guitar player. And of course "Mona" the bassist who gives a new definition to the "girl power" thing so overused on some "alternative" circuits.
Sammy and The Waboritas are more popular now than Van Halen, that's for sure!!!
Buy the DVD if you want a good show, but the interview is crappy, anyway if you are a fan of Sammy I think you will enjoy it anyway!!!

Totally worth owning, but not as good at other DVDs.
Verified purchase
This DVD is worth owning for sure, but Livin' It Up in St. Louis is better in almost every way; better performance, better sound, bette crowed, and better production. This show has more deep cuts, and a second disc with interviews and stuff. You can't go wrong with any live Sammy Hagar. He's kinda like David Lee Roth, but with singing ability, good songwriting, and a better band.

This DVD is a lot of fun and you should buy it. Drink some tequila and let Sammy and Co. have their way with you.

Sammy Hagar rocks the roof down
Verified purchase
This is one of the best dvd concerts out their. No fancy angle shots during the show. No fancy light show, no stupid antics, just one heck of a show to watch. The "Red Rocker" performs some of his best hits, he's written so much good music I wish he could have performed all of it on this dvd, but we know thats Impossible. If you like a very good performance of Some of Sammy's music get Cabo Wabo Birthday Bash Tour, you won't be disappointed.

Sammy strikes again
Verified purchase
Sammy Hagar is a phenomenon. He's 55 years old and still rocks like he's 20. I've seen Sammy live in concert with Van Halen, solo and at Cabo Wabo and he is definately at his best in a small club environment. Sammy isn't doing it anymore for the money...he's doing it because he loves to perform. How many singers would let fans come onstage with him? Sammy and his top-notch band shake the rafters in this one. If you're a Sammy fan, you can't go wrong.

Nobody does it better!
Verified purchase
DVD concert of the century! Nobody rocks better than Sammy. This is a must for all fans of music. The Red Rocker is timeless. Sammy's repertoire of material speaks for itself in this performance. Sorry DLR, this stuff is way out of your league!!! I loved Van Halen but the solo material is so much more passionate and real. The Waboritas are without question his best band. Vic Johnson is soooo cool. It would have been nice to see "3 In The Middle" included, but nevertheless this concert shreds! Non-stop entertainment, rock's greatest voice, oldest teenager, and coolest frontman. Sit back, grab some tequila, and enjoy over 2 hours of pure rock and roll bliss. You won't be disappointed. The interview disc is very enjoyable also. Cheers.

Sammys birthday bash
Verified purchase
Anybody that is a Sammy Hargar fan should buy this DVD. It is one of his best performances ever. I think you should turn off your phone, dim you lights and CRANK up the sound, just sit back and enjoy. If you dont have a good stereo-thats your loss. Sammy Rocks the house down!. OK now lets get technical about it, go in and change you sound settings, if you have 5.1 use it, if not change to 2.1 they both will still blow your ears off. Picture quality is great its a DVD what did you expect. Lets not forget about the bonus disk, the interview with Sammy was a very candid conversation. I really liked the part when he told it like it is about Eddie & Dave being [jerks]. ... Bottom line is: buy this and you wont be disapointed.
