Me and the boys from the ole school,
Casino, Cocktails, And Chickenfoot, was a great weekend
Away from vermont and the Champlain Valley
By the way ... GREAT SHOW! AS EXPECTED!
And there was no opening band. Chickenfoot came out at about 8:20 and played till about 10:00; no encore, the last two songs they played were encore songs for ealier shows on the tour.
And things pretty much worked out transportation wise. I was supposed to be the driver for me & three friends, and then I won the meet & greet for me and ONE guest. And I've friends who are "transportation challenged". And one just pisses me off (at 1:30 the day of the show, he actually asked when he needs to let me know if he's making the show or the meet & greet ... hello! they're just hours away!). At that point, I couldn't deal with him anymore, and gave him gas money so he could skip the meet & greet (idiot!) and drive down on his own for the show. Basically, he would have drove me crazy so I paid him to go on his own!
The meet & greet was cool. Got a back stage tour, photo with the band, heard part of the sound check. In all honesty, I couldn't afford what it would have cost to purchase the VIP perks. But it's nice to have been born with a horse shoe up my backside and win the VIP!
Great, great show Saturday night. They sound better every time I see them. The band really loved playing at the Mohegan Sun. Sammy said so that night and I also spoke with them on Monday in NY and Kenny also said how great it was to play there. Thanks for a fun night guys!
Just called the venue and STILL NO INFO on opener. Can't wait for the show, but dyin to know who is opening. CF has had a short set on other shows which sux, maybe adding 8 more songs or so to there regular set and the hell with an opener!!
I still havent found out who's opening yet, but regardless, I'm super excited to see Chickenfoot in just 10 days!
I've never seen Satriani live before and I'm bringing my 9 year old son who's been taking guitar lessons for a little inspiration! We're very Excited!
News on the opener - Black Stone Cherry is listed as the opener in the info we have, so expect to see them there. Great show!
What's weird is that Black Stone Cherry is playing at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford that day ... with the "Alternative Rock 106.9 WCCC Big Gig w/ Godsmack & Staind" show. Their scheduled set time (subject to change) is 6:00 to 6:30; so, its conceivable they could get off the stage at 6:30, have the roadies pack their equiptment in record time, and drive from Hartford to Mohegan Sun and still be able to take the stage by 8:10
I called Mohegan; right now, they don't show any opening act, but they said that can change and they won't know for sure until that evening.
Right now, I'm scrambling to make driving arrangements. I was the driver (myself and three friends). BUT! Found out today that I'm the lucky Foot Soldier that won a Meet & Greet to the show! But its for me and ONE guest, not three. Of my three friends, one doesn't drive and the other is having car trouble. I DON'T want to miss the meet & greet, but I don't want to screw the people I was providing transportation for. I'm optimistic it'll all work out. I hope!
would love to see Mona, Vic, And David......
Who is opening for Chickenfoot for this show. I know Black Stone Cherry is for other shows, but they are playing another concert (The WCCC Big Gig Music Festival) that same night in CT also, so its not them.
Unfortunately, we don't have any information on the opening act at this time. There's nothing listed at the moment.
Here's the info for the arena box office, which is open from 10AM to 8PM local venue time: (860) 862-8499 .
I spoke to the box office on your behalf, and this is all we have so far. Their best recommendation was to check the website. We'll try to post any information here when we get it.
I wish I had more to give you!
Thank you for looking into it. Any update yet?
I'm sure that a quick call to the box office by even a handful of fans would prompt the box office folks to start asking about it in the weekly meeting. Maybe we can get some info that way.
I just wanted to update that I've tried the box office a few times over the past couple weeks, including today, and they have no info on the opening act yet.
Thanks for letting us know!
I'm SO relieved I got my order in at 10am on the 28th, just before the VIP Nation migration to Ticketmaster....they called me and told me my package is absolutely confirmed and locked in place despite the change of scenery for the package sales, so all that matters now is MAY 19th CAN'T GET HERE FAST ENOUGH!!! See you fellow Foot Soldiers in the front row!!!
Well Foot fans, we wanted them and we're gonna get them. Chickenfooooooooooooooot. Oh man I can't wait. Purchased the VIP for Conn. and N.Y. Guys Can't wait to meet you. Hey Sammmy, when is your new Rum coming to the states? Have a GREAT time everyone.
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright!
Got me sum Tick-Ettes!
The code that is posted doesn't work. It's for the regular seat presale. Need the code for the VIP packages. Missing out here! Want to purchase VIP package. Don't you guys want to make some money?
You can get the password by visiting the tour page at http://www.chickenfoot.us/tour . From there click the "Tickets" link under the "Package" column for the "May 19 Mohegan Sun" entry in the list of tour dates and venues. From there you will be linked to page to buy the tickets.
The presale page on ticketmaster is asking for a password. What is the password for the presale? I never got one.
The presale code should be on the upper right of this page, just below the main header.
You can also find it on your profile page.
The code doesn't work. I'm missing out here. Would someone please be kind enough to supply the correct code! The code that's up is just for regular seat presale. Thanks!
