Former VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar is set to bring his brand of eighties rock to Nevada - when he opens up an American branch of his famed Mexican restaurant and nightclub CABO WABO CANTINA.

The 56-year-old - who replaced David Lee Roth as the heavy rockers' frontman in 1985 - will perform a number of gigs during the opening weekend of the new establishment at Lake Tahoe's HARVEYS RESORT CASINO in Nevada.

Hagar says, "Cabo Wabo is a lifestyle. Something that requires only a willingness to enjoy your life and embrace all that makes you happy. That's the reason the Cantina was created."

The restaurant and nightclub is due to open its doors on 30 April (04) and Hagar will play a handful of concerts across the street from Harveys at the SOUTH SHORE ROOM.
