The Smashing Pumpkins vocalist and guitarist Billy Corgan joined Sammy Hagar and The Circle last October 20 at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana to perform Van Halen‘s classic song “Ain’t Talking About Love” from the band’s 1978 debut album, which had David Lee Roth on vocals originally.
Besides Hagar, The Circle is also formed by the ex-Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and the guitarist Vic Johnson. Their setlists are a mix of Hagar’s solo songs, Montrose, Van Halen, Chickenfoot, some covers and their original songs.
They already released three studio albums: “Space Between” (2019), Lockdown 2020 (2021) and Crazy Times (2022).
