Sammy Hagar-themed restaurant to return to Roseville

Legendary rocker Sammy Hagar will re-open his namesake Roseville restaurant with a concert in September.

Hagar will reunite with the surviving members of Montrose, the hard rock band with which he launched his career in the 1970s. The concert will take place at 7 p.m. Sept. 13 at downtown Roseville’s Vernon Street Town Square, in front of Roseville City Hall. Sammy’s Rockin’ Island Bar & Grill is slated to open Sept. 15.

Tickets for the concert can be purchased at getmyperks.com and are $82.50 for two people, which includes a $75 restaurant gift card.

The re-opening comes almost a year after former owner Steve Pease disappeared and was later found dead in the Pacific Ocean near Gualala. The circumstances of his death have not been solved. The Roseville Community Development Corporation, a city affiliated nonprofit, foreclosed on the property earlier this year and worked with Hagar to bring back the popular downtown eatery.
