“I’ve been trying to make the birthday bash available to anyone and everyone for almost 30 years and this year under the dark cloud of COVID-19 we had to roll up our sleeves and put on our thinking caps to figure out a way to make it happen at all,” said Sammy Hagar. “That’s when this beautiful exotic island sitting right in front of our faces gave us the thumbs up. We’re bringing the beach party to your house and for the first time we all get to be there. Are we having any fun yet?”
