I attended this show with VIP package and Front Row Seat. My second Chickenfoot Show and Boy did they Kick Ass! Avenida has a new addition to the ending...Bass Solo..wow..is there any band that could pull that off in their first song?! Chad is so Rock Solid it must be inspiring drummers everywhere! Yes even myself as an intermediate player. Sammy..well i can bearly explain how hes up there always giving 101% and making the night special for so many with sigs and attention!..i personally saw how much this meant to quite a few fans including myself...thanks Sammy for Signing my banner!....and of course Joe...yeah this gig maybe easier than his solo but he cant change his drive to make each song a little better and creative. Its shocking to me how i can watch a band and look at Joe only 25% of the time..lol. During the show, Joe's mom was escorted on Stage with Sammy. Shes a cool lady ....besides being Joes Mom. You could see in her smiles during the show that she was very proud of her son...and being side stage must have been easier on the ears! they didnt play Running Out or Highway Star =(
I was permitted to go into each band members dressing room for pics and their guest room with food, warm up instruments, a big rack of wine (i couldnt find the Cabo)..got to see up close the famous chickenfoot guitar and the jack daniels bass. The onstage tour was added last minute and we had freedom to rove around the stage and take all the pics we wanted...
Davy Knowles (warm up) is an amazing guitar player . His band really sounded great!
and a thanks to Rich the tour director who made it an easy unpressurized tour...
