VINCE NEIL Joins SAMMY HAGAR For Cover Of MONTROSE's 'Rock Candy' (Video)

MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil joined SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE on stage on May 19 at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Missouri to perform the MONTROSE classic "Rock Candy". Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below (courtesy of YouTube user "thome2000").

In his review of the show, St. Louis Post-Dispatch writer Daniel Durchholz said of Vince's contribution to "Rock Candy": "Neil didn't seem to know the words, and his appearance was a needless distraction."

SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE's concert in Maryland Heights had been rescheduled from the previous night, when the threat of severe weather forced its postponement an hour and a quarter before showtime. About 11,000 attended Sunday, with Neil as the support act, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Neil is continuing to tour the world with his backing group, which includes Dana Strum and Jeff Blando from SLAUGHTER, along with drummer Zoltan Chaney.

THE CIRCLE, Hagar's critically acclaimed supergroup also featuring Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson, kicked off its 23-city North American on April 19 in Reno, Nevada and will end it on June 7 in Chicago, Illinois.

THE CIRCLE's debut album of original material, "Space Between", came out on May 10.
