    Cool Chickenfoot Official Show Thread Cinqo De Foot Lake Tahoe May 7-8

    This is the discussion thread for pics, reviews, and random thoughts about the upcoming one-off Chickenfoot reunion show on Saturday, May 7, 2016. Thought I'd start one, 'cause, well, heck, I'm going, and I'm sure I'll post thoughts beforehand, as well as pics and my review when I get back. Scotty, if this needs to be moved somewhere, merged, or threaded differently, feel free to move or change as you see fit.

    That's a long ass drive from LA, not sure I'll do it. Flying to Sacramento or Reno not that convenient either. They need to do more than one show this year!

    Do it, man. It's worth it. It's gonna be their last show ever, in all likelihood. Sam and Mike have Circle commitments this summer, Chad's got Pepper stuff, additional shows just probably aren't going to happen. Here's hoping I'm wrong. It's def a long drive, I'll be making it myself and it's about the same time and mileage commitment as Los Angeles to Tahoe. But heck, the easiest way is to fly into Reno of course. I prefer driving, not big on flying these days.

    It's worth it just to see Chad jam some III tunes. Can't believe it's been since 2010 that we've seen original Foot live.

    So I'm clearly bored tonight. Maybe Mikey will read this before May, who knows. (what up bro?)

    Here's what I think is a pretty good setlist, in order, from the Foot for their reunion gig, presuming they keep it at an even 20 tracks, two or three of those for the encore, and presuming they toss in a cover like Highway Star or Immigration Song or whatever, plus one 'Sammy' song (like Bad Motor Scooter) as they used to do on the previous two tours:

    They gotta open and close BIG. Hard and heavy 'Foot. So the first track is tough. I was debating between Bigfoot, Get it Up, Temptation, and Avenida, decided on Get it Up, it's such a fast n' dirty garage band rawker.

    Get It Up
    Alright, Alright
    Soap on a Rope
    Lighten Up
    Last Temptation
    Avenida Revolution
    Learning to Fall
    Turnin' Left
    My Kinda Girl
    Bigfoot
    Something Gone Wrong
    Down the Drain
    Sexy Little Thing
    Bitten by the Wolf
    Oh Yeah
    Different Devil
    Dubai Blues*


    Encore:
    1. (cover song - some classic hard rock anthem well known to everyone - please no Zeppelin, Sam and Mike have been doing that with the Circle plenty thanks to Jason, let's try something new, like a Beatles track maybe, or AC/DC, or even put Joe's blues skillz to the test with some smooth Stevie Ray).
    2. Sammy solo track - since it's Cinco de Mayo, and fans will be downing tequila at the show and the cantina all day and all night, and since Redheads luuuuv singin' along to the chorus, I'm thinking Mas Tequila would be pretty ideal.
    3. Future in the Past

    *Seriously...Mike....Sam...please toss Dubai Blues in the set. You never played it live to my knowledge on the III tour, and it's such a kick ass tune and it'll be a monster when it's played with Joe's live tone.

    Heh. Well, these setlist threads are always pie in the sky, I dunno if mine should be any different.

    It's fairly realistic! They only have 23 released songs and I listed 18 of them, presuming they want to play all CF songs.

    No love for Come Closer?

    Dibs will not be pleased.

    Who's Dibs?

    Nah, Come Closer isn't one of my fave CF tracks. Neither is Alright Alright but I put that in there just to fill out a 20 song set.

    I'm sure even the band agrees 3 1/2 Letters need not be considered.

    Something Gone Wrong might be ambitious for Sam these days vocally, but it's still an epic track live when Joe breaks out the double neck.

    Shorter list - what I think MUST be played, for the general 'Foot fanbase, rather than what I'd LIKE to be played.

    Soap on a Rope
    Get it Up
    Down the Drain
    Sexy Little Thing
    My Kinda Girl
    Bigfoot
    Turnin' Left
    Something Gone Wrong/Learning to Fall (those redhead 'foot chicas will want their ballad)


    Those 'rockers', I think, the fans wanna hear for sure. Everything else is gravy. Dubai Blues would be SUPER gravy.

    It's all good, LOL, I don't care what they play, it'll still be an epic show, I was just bored last night. Making a dream setlist with only two albums to choose from is kinda silly.

    That said, I do hope they crack out Dubai Blues. Have I mentioned I love Dubai Blues?

    And I forgot a slot for "The New Song," which I hope they drop before the gig, and ideally play it live in Tahoe, of course.

    It's a great list... I'll buy the live DVD in a heartbeat.

    You must have been gone by the time peoples set lists insisted on Van Hagar tunes and a Peppers song or two also.

    It pissed people off and caused arguments when folks couldn't comprehend that the Foot was their own band and only wanted to play their songs. Ha! imagine.

    LOL. What a wacky notion. Yeah, I don't remember people complaining that CF should play Van Hagar, or RCHP tracks. Must've been during my exile. Though I think I was still here when the debut dropped. Wasn't around at all for the III discussions.

    I seriously doubt Satch would ever want to play any EVH songs. The comparisons would be brutal, even if he nailed them.

    I think they'll stick to the old formula, esp since it's only one night. Maybe two covers, but if they stay true to form, one will be a classic rock staple and one will be a Sammy solo tune.

    I should be writing.

    Or binge watching the new House of Cards season 4 on Netflix. I

    Or Imma dink around with this thread and some old CF pix I snapped back on the '11/'12 III tour.

    Or maybe I'll do all three of those things at once.
