Rival Sons Announce Tour Dates With Sammy Hagar

Rival Sons are gearing up to be native sons once again as they have mapped out a series of U.S. tour dates, including a number of shows with Sammy Hagar, following their success overseas.

The band will be kicking off the 14-city tour on August 20th at Loveland, CO. Prior to the tour they will be performing at the Telluride Festival on July 13th.

Several of the summer tour dates will see the band supporting Sammy Hagar on his "Four Decades of Rock" tour. Hagar and Rival Sons frontman Jay Buchanan are both natives of Fontana, CA, which recently honored Hagar with a street named after him.

Rivals Song will be touring in support of their latest album, "Head Down," but they caught Sammy Hagar's ear with a previous release a few years back.

"These guys are the real thing," says Hagar. "Their first CD was great, showing off a lot of styles from the 60's, 70's and 80's. These boys have done their homework…now road-tested. The Sons have made a CD (Head Down) that truly lives up to the band's name. This is a giant step from a great previous CD…not easy.

"But for those that like classic rock but are tired of the same old songs, I highly recommend this CD…and even better, go see 'em live--they deliver."

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday had this to say about the summer trek, "Well, we're finally hittin' our homeland for a handful of tour dates. Ask and ye shall receive! And what a cool thing to get to go out and support a legend…and super cool fella like Mr. Sammy Hagar! I think this one's gonna be a blast."
