Former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony was joined by several musicians, including WARRANT singer Robert Mason, to perform three VAN HALEN classics — "Panama", "I'm The One" and "You Really Got Me" (originally by THE KINKS) — during the "Mark In The Morning" first-anniversary show on February 26 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
Anthony, singer Sammy Hagar, Eddie and Alex Van Halen last teamed up in 2004 for a U.S. summer tour. In exchange for taking part in the tour, Anthony reportedly had to agree to take a pay cut and sign away his rights to the band name and logo.
In 2007, the Van Halen brothers, Wolfgang Van Halen and singer David Lee Roth announced they would be hitting the road for a reunion tour. Anthony later told Music Radar that he "found out about that tour like everybody else did — in the press."
Anthony's new band THE CIRCLE, which also features Hagar, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson, plays hits from Sammy's four decades of rock (MONTROSE, solo, VAN HALEN, THE WABORITAS, CHICKENFOOT) as well as classic tracks from the LED ZEPPELIN catalog.
