As you know, the band is playing a free show in Cleveland at the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame on August 15th. Although tickets are free, they can be difficult to get through various Cleveland local promotions, so we have been hard at work to find other ways to get some tickets into your hands. Read on to find out what we've put together.
Recently added shows are: DENVER, CO on September 11th at the Fillmore and SAN ANTONIO, TX on September 20th at Sunset Station.
The August 5th Chickenfoot date in Pittsburgh, PA at Riverplex Amphitheater has been cancelled due to logistical reasons. The band is sorry to miss the chance to play for their Pennsylvania fans and hope they can reschedule in the near future. Fans can return tickets to Tickemaster for a full refund.
The August 4th show at The Sound Academy in Toronto, ONT has been moved to August 5th. Tickets originally purchased for August 4th will be honored; no action is required by fans. Customers who wish a refund may obtain one by dealing directly with the same outlet they purchased the tickets through.
Update: Chad aggravated an old injury that had not healed while playing last week in Paris. He had an MRI that revealed the injury and waited to see if he could play last week. Madrid was cancelled to allow him time for evaluation in Paris and he came to Italy hoping to play the remainder of the shows. After the weekend shows he was in pain and all were very concerned that he could need more than rest so this week's sold out Hamburg and Copenhagen shows have been cancelled to allow Chad more time to see specialists in London.
With only three days in stores, the album takes its place on the Top Album Chart just behind The Dave Matthew’s Band, Eminem and 311. We couldn't do it without all of you fine feathered friends, so congratulations all around and a hearty thank you! Keep up the good work spreading the word of the Foot!
You may remember hearing them talk about this video in the "Oh Yeah" episode of the 12 Days of The Foot, and it is finally here! Check out Joe, Chad, Mike and Sammy in the first Chickenfoot Music Video which combines live performance, rehearsal footage, and a very special bbq solo section. Available in the Chickenfoot Widget here on the news page as well as in the Podcast and on Youtube and Facebook.

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.
