Chickenfoot’s Got Tour

The superstar ensemble pecks out a late summer run of theatres beginning Aug. 2 in Halifax.

They’re the people who have entertained you all these years – Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith and former Van Halenites Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony. The band makes their first TV appearance June 5 on “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien” – the same day their self-titled hits mass retail. We say “mass” because it’s already available for presale at Best Buy’s Web site.

The band will also do a free show at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Aug. 15.
