We're happy to announce the first part of this summer's Chickenfoot North American tour! You'll find dates for the month of August over in the tour section and we will have complete presale information coming to you Monday. Most public onsales will be the 13th and presales will begin for most shows on the 10th. If you haven't already upgraded your account to Premium Fanclub status and are interested in the presales, you should upgrade now!
Just in case you missed the announcement in our email newsletter, here's your second reminder to set the dial on that archaic device known as the "TV" this Footday June 5th to the new Conan O'Brien led Tonight Show. The boys will be there to put their footprint on the show in its first week, unleashing a live version of "Oh Yeah".
And in case you really have been out of touch, this Friday (now to be known as Footday), the album drops. Catch it at fine record stores everywhere to get that swanky heat-sensitive cover action, or get your immediate fix starting the 5th online at all usual digital portals. For ONLY Jun 5th - 8th, Amazon is offering a sweet $3.99 discount for the digital download.
You should now be seeing at the top of the page our brand new video serial, "12 Days of the Foot". Join Joe, Chad, Mike, Sammy as they share some background on each song of the new album. Also included are clips of each song so you can get a listen in advance of the release date! One episode, one song per day. Enjoy!
We've dropped a hip montage of songs from the new album with exclusive live, rehearsal, and behind the scenes footage. Songs featured are Avenida Revolucion, Soap On A Rope, Sexy Little Thing, Oh Yeah, and Get It Up. Check it out here in the Chickenfoot player (embed it on your site/ blog/ etc) and it's also available over at the usual Facebook/Myspace/Youtube Chickenfoot channels.

The boys have been hard at work rehearsing for the upcoming ROAD TEST shows and we knew you'd want a glimpse behind the scenes, so we've posted a photo gallery from last week's activities over on our Facebook gallery and Myspace gallery.
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.
A huge thanks to the overwhelming demand that we've had to the presale for the nine ROAD TEST shows in the US! Since these are very small venues, the demand far exceeded the availability and we know that left some fans very happy and others very disappointed. Tickets sold out for the shows in minutes but we want you to know we are returning this summer to play the US and Canada in larger venues. We also want to let you know that we have gone to great lengths to keep these tickets out of the scalpers hands-- all tickets are sold for pick up at will call with ID so do not buy tickets at any secondary ticket outlets!
It was a very small bottleneck to squeeze through to get tickets, if you were unable to get through do not despair!! Some shows still have public onsales coming up so you have one more chance there, plus watch for other tour announcements soon!
We're extremely happy to let y'all know that the album is now available for presale! You can also see an exclusive video we put together for the Best Buy folks and of course don't miss the very hip interactive experience of the Heat-sensitive thermal cover. http://www.bestbuy.com/chickenfoot
