Video footage of CHICKENFOOT's May 1 rehearsal for the "Different Devil Tour" — which is scheduled to kick off on Friday, May 4 at Harrah's Hotel & Casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada — can be seen below.
Says the band: "With no advance notice, we decided to just jump onto a Google+ Hangout on air to share a glimpse at whatever was going down at the rehearsal studio while we get ready for the 'Different Devil' 2012 summer tour starting Friday and Saturday in Tahoe. The Hangout echo cancelation did some nasty things to the audio so this is a re-upload, but otherwise is unedited raw as-it-happened."
CHICKENFOOT's sophomore album, "III", sold 42,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's self-titled debut opened with 49,000 units back in June 2009 to debut at No. 6.
"III" was produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, METALLICA) and is the much-anticipated follow-up album to the successful eponymous debut of a rock band packed with successful veterans.
Featuring guitar hero Joe Satriani and former VAN HALEN members Michael Anthony (bass) and Sammy Hagar (vocals), CHICKENFOOT's touring lineup includes legendary drummer/musician Kenny Aronoff, who is filling in for Chad Smith while Smith hits the road with his main band, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.
