Chickenfoot Announce Spring Tour Dates

February 21st, 2012  |  Published in News

]CHICKENFOOT, the super group featuring guitarist Joe Satriani, drummer Kenny Aronoff, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar have announced A DIFFERENT DEVIL TOUR in continued support of their newest record “]Chickenfoot III”] (eOne Music/earMUSIC/Edel). “]The Foot are road tested and ready to roll and can’t wait to play the new songs for the fans!”] says front man Sammy Hagar. The tour will kick off May 4th in Lake Tahoe, NV and BLACK STONE CHERRY has been tapped to support.

The band’s second hit single, “]Different Devil”] has hit #13 with a bullet on the Mediabase Mainstream Rock Chart and #5 on the Mediabase Classic Rock Chart. This will be the bands first full US run since 2009.

In November CHICKENFOOT completed a sold out “]Road Test Tour”] that took them through San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Chicago and New York with a stop for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

CHICKENFOOT released “]Chickenfoot III”] late last year to much critical praise, “]It’s hard to hate big-boned butt rock from guys clearly making it because they still love the form,”] says ROLLING STONE.

BILLBOARD says, “It’s a rare case of a group that’s equal to – or perhaps even greater than – the sum of its parts…this is an album that really wins hearts with its granite thump’n’roll.” USA TODAY went as far to say that “]Chickenfoot III”] could be “]the beginning of a riff-driven renaissance.”] The band recently earned a GRAMMY nomination for the “Best Recording Package,” for the creative 3D design.

The first single, “Big Foot,” debuted at #1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock Chart holding the position for 11 weeks. “]Chickenfoot III”] debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 100 and follows the band’s 2009 debut album, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 100 and was certified gold for sales over 500,000 units by the Recording Industry Association of America.
