CHICKENFOOT performed at this year’s Mark And Brian Christmas Show on December 15 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Singer Sammy Hagar kicked things off with a rousing rendition of “Santa’s Going South For Christmas” with the MARK AND BRIAN ALL-STAR BAND. Guitarist Joe Satriani later teamed up with the ALL-STAR BAND to perform “Satch Boogie” before Sammy and bassst Michael Anthony took the stage to play “Poundcake” and “I Can’t Drive 55”. CHICKENFOOTthen hit the stage together, performing a four-song set that had the crowd at the sold-out theater on its feet and pumping its fists.
A pre-show interview with Anthony conducted by KLOS rock reporter Sal Cirrincione can be seen below.
