Throwback Concert: Chickenfoot at Mohegan Sun Arena 2012

Throwback Concert: Chickenfoot at Mohegan Sun Arena 2012

By Drew Carrano

Chickenfoot is a supergroup comprised of guitar wiz Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith, and former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar. Formed in 2008, Chickenfoot would go on to release two studio albums, a live album and a box set.

Though their albums are great, its their live show that makes them special. You look at Chickenfoot perform live and its like watching four best friends rockin’ out on stage together. That’s exactly what we saw in 2012 when they came to Mohegan Sun Arena.

Today’s Throwback Concert:


Different Devil Tour

Special Guest: Black Stone Cherry

Saturday May 19, 2012

Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville


About The Tour: In early 2012 Chickenfoot announced a 20-date North American tour to promote their second studio album Chickenfoot III. The Different Devil Tour, which was named after the band’s current single, kicked off in Lake Tahoe in May. While Chad Smith was on tour with Red Hot Chili Peppers, filling in on drums was former John Mellencamp drummer Kenny Aronoff.

Chickenfoot made a return to Mohegan Sun after playing the Arena in 2009. Much like that show in 2009, the 2012 show featured a heavy dose of Chickenfoot songs. You weren’t going to hear a Van Halen song at this show. No way. This was a show for fans of Chickenfoot, and rightly so. The only non-Chickenfoot song performed was ‘Rock Candy’ at the end, in tribute to the Sammy Hagar’s former bandmate and friend Ronnie Montrose, who sadly passed away two months earlier.
