Chickenfoot Concert Review 8/16
Last night I had the opportunity to witness the super group Chickenfoot (the peace sign) consisting of Sammy Hagar, Chad Smith, Michael Anthony and Joe Satriani perform in front of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Even though it was a free concert, you still needed to win a ticket to attend.
The show blasted open with the title track of their debut album called “Avenida Revolution” a song that features bombastic drums, bass, vocals and a guitar riff that stands tall among rock tracks. The concert was solid and the band focused on selections from their album; the spectacle was not absent of Sammy Hagar’s banter with the audience. The biggest surprise was the Red Rocker calling out WMMS for not playing their song “Oh Yeah” which reached #1 on Album Oriented Rock Charts (AOR) because of support from other markets.
After listening to the album a few times, I came to the same realization that Chickenfoot’s efforts are underrated and there are handful of great tracks on this album. The concert further solidified the fact that they are a talented group of musicians.
