Here’s a bunch of news from Chickenfoot:
HELLO PEOPLE OF THE FOOT!
We have a few good pieces of news to report hot off the presses! As you know, we are starting to get close to the album release in June, and the first European festival dates. But, here are a few new things that you need to know! We will continue to bring you the latest news direct to your email — thanks for being part of the growing community we are building!
UPDATED CHICKENFOOT.US visit http://www.chickenfoot.us
We’ve molted a bit at CHICKENFOOT.US and moved away from the teaser stage into something that makes it easier to keep track of what is going on as we rev the engine towards release date and the first shows. The widget is still front-and-center, and take note of the big link to the OFFICIAL FAN CLUB, which we’ll tell you more about in a moment.
Starting next week, we will open up the site for FREE accounts for fans near and far to step up their participation in the community. Once the shows start we’ll look to you to share your reviews and photos and stories. We’ll get back to you next week about that, but know that everyone on the mailing list (that means you!) will have an account automatically set aside for you. Anyone who upgrades to the Official Fan Club Membership will also have their CHICKENFOOT.US account status upgraded, opening up other features of the site to them, most notably ticket presales.
OFFICIAL CHICKENFOOT FANCLUB click the banner on http://www.chickenfoot.us
We’re happy to announce that the OFFICIAL Chickenfoot Fan Club has opened its doors for early registration. Like many other fan clubs, this will be the only way to get access to those early PRESALE TICKET packages for the upcoming US TOUR DATES that will be announced very very soon. The annual membership also comes with a swanky EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRT and an ONGOING 10% DISCOUNT for anything you should wish to purchase from the store (which will be opening for business soon).
How will the presales work? Glad you asked. As we said above, next week we will be opening up CHICKENFOOT.US for everyone to have their own account. When you purchase a Fanclub membership, your account will get supercharged and become your gateway to the ticket presales.
Whenever NEW tour dates are announced (not *yet*, hold your horses), fan club members simply need to:
1. Log into their account on CHICKENFOOT.US
2. Click on the TOUR link to go to the tour section
3. Make note of their unique CODE that will appear on the page.
4. Click on the purchase link that will be displayed, and then enter their code on the ticketing page (Ticketmaster, etc).
* Anyone who purchases a Fanclub membership NOW (before the CHICKENFOOT.US accounts are available) will also automatically have an account created and enabled for them.
INTERVIEW WITH THE BAND
Joe Bosso, who also handled duties on the cover story for Guitar World (available now) has shared audio excerpts from his interview with Joe, Mike and Sammy (Chad was otherwise occupied with birth of his new son). Check it out!
