Sammy Hagar: "Go There Once... Be There Twice - 20 Years Of Music At The Cabo Wabo"; Unreleased Footage Posted Online

Sammy Hagar (Chickenfoot, ex-Van Halen, Montrose) performs his solo classic  "Heavy Metal"' in this unreleased outtake from the upcoming documentary "Go There Once... Be There Twice - 20 Years Of Music At The Cabo Wabo". Footage can be wathed below (shot by Todd Sutherland and Scott Plunkett).

A film description reads:

"30 years ago a hard working, road weary musician, looking for a place to relax stumbled upon a sleepy little town south of the border. With a little luck and heavy on enthusiasm Sammy Hagar created the Cabo Wabo cantina. Little did he realize his idea for a place to play and invite his friends to, would turn into an empire that continues to grow and develop today.

As that idea grew, so did the town. Cabo San Lucas has become a worldwide tourist destination, where many flock not just to hit the beaches, but to party with the guy who started it all. 

The biggest party of the year is reserved for Sammy's birthday, where for the past 20 years, he has celebrated October 13th by playing a week of special concerts, to promote and help the town he fell in love with. The publicity, the intimacy of a small club, the special guests who show up unannounced, have captivated the redhead nation from around the world, to journey to the tip of Baja, and celebrate this annual event.

Obscure footage, fan cameras
, and archival Sammy performances, not seen in over 30 years, are all incorporated into this rockumentary that even a non-redhead will understand and enjoy.

After watching this movie you will see why if you ´Go There Once... you'll Be There Twice´."
