CHICKENFOOT - the band which features former VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar, guitarist JOE SATRIANI, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith - have issued the following update:"Beyond our expectations, the public onsales for the 9 Road Test shows sold out all tickets in record time. The band was blown away by your response and can't wait to take the show on the road!
Please remember that all shows require photo ID to enter the venue, so we advise you to NOT buy tickets from online ticket brokers.
Chickenfoot will be back in August and September to play a major North American tour and there will be sufficient tickets to meet your demands. Due to the size of the venues for these shows, we do not forsee any issues with presale availability.
Fans who joined the fan club and were unable to get a Road Test presale ticket, we hope you keep your membership in expectation of the upcoming tour announcement.
if you have any questions or concerns about your membership, please contact ORDERHELP@FANFIRE.COM.
The boys are in rehearsal this week, and we'll see you on the road!"
Playing a series of intimate venues, this initial tour is set to launch on May 14th at the El Corazon in Seattle, WA. The shows will conclude at TLA in Philadelphia, PA on May 29th, with tickets prices throughout averaging $50 per show. The new album will be released through major retailers and digitally on June 9th and will be available for pre-sale through Best Buy beginning April 19th at www.bestbuy.com/chickenfoot. Chickenfoot's debut album will be released by earMUSIC in Germany on June 5th and in the UK on Monday June 8th."We spent a lot of time together in the recording studio working long hours to make Chickenfoot live up to expectations," said Satriani. "We really feel like we've mastered it and recorded a great album but now we're especially excited to take the show on the road and see how the fans react to it live.
