Sammy Hagar suggested last fall that 2020 would likely be his last year of rigorous touring.

At the MusiCares Person of the Year gala honoring Aerosmith Friday, Hagar again teased the upcoming tour.

On Monday, he revealed the first 30 dates of the tour and that his band would be joined by Whitesnake and special guests Night Ranger.

"I love some friendly competition on stage and that's exactly what this is going to be," Hagar said in a statement. "David [Coverdale] and I have nothing but the highest respect for one another, but we would also like to blow the other guy off the stage! Add in Night Ranger and the fans will have one hell of a night of music."

The Live Nation-produced tour begins July 9 in West Palm Beach, Florida. The final date announced today is September 20 in Chula Vista, California, but Hagar has suggested there are more dates to be announced.

Hagar & the Circle, featuring Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson, released their debut album, Space Between, last May, the same day Whitesnake's unveiled its long-awaited 13th studio album, Flesh & Blood.

Tickets for the summer tour go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, January 31, at 10 a.m. local time via
