Sammy Hagar's four-day 70th birthday celebration in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico will be featured in the upcoming movie, Til I'm Dead: Sammy Hagar's Rock-N-Roll Birthday Party.

Rolling Stone reported the film includes performances by Hagar's high profile friends, including Bob Weir, Eddie Money, Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell, Run D.M.C.'s Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels, Vinnie Paul, Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, and Toby Keith. The movie plays for one-night-only on December 5th in select theaters. Hagar's Circle bandmates Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham, and Vic Johnson are also featured in the flick, which includes "performances and partying from the event, which launched October 9th and concludes on the 14th at Hagar's nightclub-restaurant Cabo Wabo Cantina."

Hagar said in a statement for the birthday celebration film: "I've been celebrating my birthday in Cabo for almost 30 years, and I couldn't begin to pick a favorite year. I've had hundreds of friends who've come down to perform and party. Each year is packed with so many insane collaborations and moments that I'm just happy that the rest of the world can finally get in -- and celebrate alongside us as it unfolds on the big screen."

Sammy Hagar told us not long ago what his annual birthday bashes are like: "It doesn't matter what songs I play. It's how I present it. It's all about the party. It's about the fun, the event, the evening, and if we decide to play Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, ZZ Top songs all night, the fans could give a s***. They're there for the party."
