Who would have thought that I’d have seen Chickenfoot twice in a matter of months? After a packed house at the Pageant, the quartet upgraded to the Fox Theatre ready to bring a mid-week party to St. Louis.
Black Stone Cherry threw out all the hair whips, karate kicks and rock poses, bringing their Kentucky-fied rock to the early crowd. Fans of the Southern rock sound nodded along, with the crowd responding well to their cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab.”

Rolling through on their Different Devil Tour, the quartet gave the audience a full throttle performance to please the crowd. Hagar was his enthusiastic self, alternating time between guitarist Joe Satriani and bassist Michael Anthony when he wasn’t out greeting the front row, and drummer Kenny Aronoff worked magic on his drumset behind the trio while still flashing a smile.
Our friends at 3 Minute Record have a great in-depth review of the ensuing 100 minute set worth checking out. Trust me, head there for the words. I just take pictures. And Chickenfoot definitely provided some good ones that evening.
Photo notes: Eager fans in the pit made for some awkward navigation around the stage, but I’m sure they were equally just as inconvenienced by us photographers roaming around. And oh so much lighting. I was especially taken how well-lit Aronoff was and made sure to focus some shots on him after neglecting him last time around.
