Following the release of their long awaited second album 'III', Chickenfoot have announced a five-date UK and European tour for January 2012; their first European concerts since July 2009.
Featuring guitar hero Joe Satriani and Van Halen duo, bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar, Chickenfoot drummer Chad Smith has temporarily handed his sticks over to the legendary drummer/musician Kenny Aronoff, who will join the band for these concerts.
Says Joe Satriani, "Kenny brings that same combination of super chops and wild energy to the band that we're used to; and, offstage, he's just as crazy as Chad."
