The road trip continues on May 6th, as Hagar revisits the site of the groundbreaking L.A. Metal scene with Judas Priest legend Rob Halford, and acclaimed supergroup Kings Of Chaos, featuring Matt Sorum, Billy Duffy, and Steve Stevens (May 6th); followed by an acoustic session with GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan, and rock power couple Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo (May 13th).

The season comes to a close with an all-access pass to his epic birthday bash on the beach in Cabo San Lucas on June 24th.
