Due to overwhelming fan demand which caused an immediate sell-out of tickets for the May 7th concert, we are happy to announce that we've added a second show on May 8th at Harrah's Lake Tahoe! The concerts, taking place over Cinco de Mayo weekend, mark our first reunion shows in more than six years and we can't wait to play together for you again!

CHICKENFOOT will reunite for the first time in over six years for a highly-anticipated one-time show on Saturday, May 7 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.
The supergroup featuring legendary musicians JOE SATRIANI (guitar), SAMMY HAGAR (vocals), CHAD SMITH (drums) and MICHAEL ANTHONY (bass) plan to rock the concert event with some of their biggest hits from Chickenfoot and Chickenfoot III including “Sexy Little Thing,” “Big Foot,” “Oh Yeah” and more.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 4 at 10:00 AM PST via Ticketmaster with a fan presale on March 2nd including a special VIP Experience package available through the band.
Their last performance together was during a surprise 3-song encore at Sammy Hagar’s 2014 Birthday Bash in Las Vegas, the concert on May 7 in Tahoe will be the first time in over 6 years that the band will reunite for an entire concert.
The ultimate VIP package includes a GA concert ticket, complimentary Beach Bar Rum Drink, Chickenfoot merchandise, guaranteed dinner reservations after sound check at The Cantina Bar and Grill, pre dinner shot, a special gift and re-entry into The Cantina after the show. In addition, VIP ticketholders will receive a wristband that allows them to the front of stage, early access into the venue and access to sound check where they can get signatures and photos with the band.
Chad and Joe were able to join Mikey and Sammy at Sammy's annual Birthday bash for an encore of Chickenfoot tunes. This year the bash was moved to Vegas while Cabo San Lucas continues to recover from Hurricane Odile. The boys tore through Big Foot, Sexy Little Thing and Oh Yeah before Chad strapped on a guitar and let Jason Bonham take over the skins for a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Rock 'N' Roll".
There is a lot of talk in the air about the guys getting together to start work on a new album soon. As you know, Chad, Mike, Joe & Sammy have been busy touring with their own projects this year but it does look like January may be in the cards for writing and collaborating on some new music! Stay tuned - we will let you know when there is confirmed action! http://www2.gibson.com/News-Lifestyle/News/en-us/Sammy-Hagar-New-Chicken...
Don't miss this great interview with Michael Anthony on For Bass Players Only! There's more talk about another Chickenfoot album down the line and if you haven't checked out MA's hot sauce - we hear it's pretty good!
Chad Smith sat down recently with Carlos Santana for a very special video edition of his MusicRadar interview series, 'In Conversation'.
This was a two part series. Santana kept the focus on the musician who sits behind the band but who, in his view, sets the tone. Check the sessions out at the links below!
Recently Joe, Chad, and Sammy had dinner at Sammy's El Paseo restaurant and discussed the band’s status. The main challenge being trying to coordinate everyone's busy schedules! Joe said he sees “one or two” more Chickenfoot albums in the future.
Although they're not on the road or in the studio right now, each Chickenfoot member has been keeping very busy and here's an update:
Joe kicked off his Unstoppable Momentum world tour last month. He's currently working his way through Europe and will begin his North American Tour on August 29th. Additional show dates have just been announced so if you haven't already got tickets, check out his site for a show near you!
