Sammy Hagar: Solo star and former frontman of Van Halen, Sammy Hagar is a rock legend and currently on tour. After stints in the hard rock band, Montrose in the '70s, Hagar went solo and successfully crafted a rock career that has spanned nearly four decades. With the release of his latest solo album, Cosmic Universal Fashion, in 2008, Hagar has proven that he still has the chops to rock.

The Fontana, California native got his start in the Platinum recording group, Montrose, which released their debut album in 1973. After one more album with the group, Hagar split and released his solo debut, Nine On A Ten Scale, in 1974. His solo career reached a fever pitch with the release of his Platinum album, Standing Hampton, in 1981. Sammy Hagar tour dates were hotly anticipated events on both sides of the Atlantic. His energetic performances garnered the attention of rock mega-group, Van Halen, who recruited Hagar to be lead singer once David Lee Roth departed for a solo career.

Hagar released four multi-Platinum records with Van Halen before returning to his solo career in the mid-90s. Since Van Halen, Hagar has been busy recording music with the Waboritas and he has become a local of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Hagar joined the supergroup, Chickenfoot, who released their Gold self-titled debut in 2009. Chickenfoot is about to release their second album, Chickenfoot III, in 2011. In the meantime, Sammy Hagar tour dates are scheduled periodically throughout 2011. Stay on top of this rock legend's concert calendar by using Eventful as your source for Sammy Hagar tour dates.

Collective Soul: When Seattle grunge went mainstream, it was only a matter of time before the ripple effect was felt in regions other than the Pacific Northwest. Georgia quintet Collective Soul, along with fellow inheritors of the now commercially lucrative post-grunge landscape like Live, Bush, and Candlebox, developed the genre into a more succinct brand of angst, turning the sonic cacophony of bands like Mudhoney and the Melvins into radio-friendly hard rock.

Collective Soul -- taken from a line in Ayn Rand's book The Fountainhead, were formed in the small town of Stockbridge in the early '90s by principal songwriter Ed Roland (lead vocals/keyboards/guitars), guitarists Dean Roland and Joel Kosche, and rhythm section Will Turpin (bass/percussion) and Shane Evans (drums/percussion). Originally released in 1993 on the Atlanta indie label Rising Storm, Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid proved popular enough on the local level that it was picked up the following year by Atlantic. Within months of its release, "Shine" became a modern rock and MTV staple, and Collective Soul found themselves with a platinum debut, playing everywhere from arenas with Aerosmith to Woodstock 1994.

They released the eponymous sophomore effort the following year, which featured the hits "World I Know" and "December," once again going multi-platinum, but their fan base began to wane upon the release of 1997's Disciplined Breakdown. Released in 1999, Dosage was a return to form for the group, yielding the hit singles "Run" and "Heavy," but despite their best efforts, the post-grunge genre was suffering under the weight of the emerging nu-metal scene. In 2000 they released Blender, an image-seeking misfire that saw the group attempting a clean-cut (no facial hair) image and mixing in heavily produced AOR with dance-pop, even performing a duet with Elton John. The following year, fans were treated to 7even Year Itch: Collective Soul's Greatest Hits 1994-2001. In 2004, the group returned to their roots, bringing on new guitar player Joel Kosche and releasing the stripped-down and dynamic Youth on its own El Music Group imprint. An eight song EP (From the Ground Up) arrived the following year.
