The holiday season is upon us, and so are year-end awards! We're excited to share the new that Chickenfoot has earned a GRAMMY nomination for the “Best Recording Package,” for the creative 3D design of the new album. For those of you who downloaded the album digitally, you may not be aware of all of the cool aspects of the packaging. Here's a quick overview of what you may be missing out on!
After the US Road Test shows wrapped up, we asked you all to share your photos, videos and stories from the shows so Foot Soldiers across the world who couldn't attend could get a feel for them. We saw some really great responses and have had a blast reliving each show through your eyes! We've selected a photo, video and story from each show to spotlight and will be sending each fan we selected an exclusive autographed copy of the Deluxe version of Chickenfoot III (that includes the bonus "Making of the Album" DVD).
Post your reviews/photos/videos to CHICKENFOOT.US and share your experience at the Road Test shows and you're automatically entered to win one of the autographed CDs we're giving away to our favorites!
The European leg of the Road Test shows were announced yesterday and presales are already underway for Foot Soldier fans. To have access to the presales you need to be a member of the Chickenfoot Fan Club.
Stops for the European tour include the UK, France, Netherlands and Germany. Public onsales are coming up quickly so get ready to get your tickets as they will go fast in these small venues! The Road Test Shows are a special limited engagement in 5 cities in Europe (and 5 in the U.S.) as a special treat for fans in advance of a more full tour in larger venues that will happen in 2012. To anyone who caught the live webcast on the album's release day, or was lucky enough to be in Cabo for the surprise Chickenfoot show Sunday night, you know that the new material is sounding amazing and Kenny is fitting right in on drums!
There are also some tickets left for the US dates - click here for a complete listing of dates and purchase links.
Foot Soldier Fan Club presales for the five shows on the Road Test Tour begin tomorrow morning at 10am, local venue time. In an effort to get as many fan club members in to each show as possible, there will be a two ticket purchase limit for each Road Test show during the presale.
If you are already a Fan Club member, your presale code will be on the tour page once you're logged in.

We're doing another cool video podcast series leading up to the release of Chickenfoot III - similar to our "12 days of the Foot" from last time, we will be unveiling new episodes every other day that includes interviews with the guys talking about each song and of course also includes a good excerpt of the song to get you excited. The videos will be showing up in all of the usual places: Facebook, YouTube, the podcast, the embeddable widget and of course the guys' Google+ pages.
Enjoy and please share them to your friends and family!
The new music video for "Big Foot", the first single off of Chickenfoot III is out! Check it out at Facebook or YouTube and a preview is available in the Chickenfoot widget and podcast. You can also buy it for yours to keep and watch anytime anywhere at the iTunes store.
