Rockfest 2015: Hedley
July 23, 2015

The Red Rocker – Sammy Hagar – headlined the Saturday night wrap-up to Empire Square’s Rockfest 2014 and he brought along some famous friends. Joining Hagar on the Downtown Belleville stage was former Van Halen bass player Michael Anthony as well as guitarist Vic Johnson and drummer Jason Bonham. The set list started with Hagar’s solo effort There’s Only One Way to Rock before they peeled off a rocking set full of tunes from Hagar’s Van Halen days including When It’s Love, Best of Both Worlds and Dreams as well as homage to Bonham’s father John Bonham with Led Zeppelin tunes Good Times Bad Times, Whole Lotta Love, Moby Dick and Rock and Roll. Photos by Aaron Bell/
