Just a opening act, support and headliner, and maybe a reason why ya put them together.


Opener - Airbourne
Support - Stone Gods
Headline - Chickenfoot

I just think these guys would compliment each other extremely well, Airbourne can get everybody in the mood, Gods have AWESOME singalong 'get-yourself-involved' songs and with Chickenfoot you can take a breather watching Satriani's godlike stringwork before getting involved in the choruses :D

Chickenfoot? Well, they are stupid fun but they would not be my top pick...not by a long shot. You know what is good? VAN HALEN!! ;)

Actually, i would probably pick:

Opener - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Support - Pearl Jam
Headline - Rush

I honestly don't know why these go together but I feel it would be a sweet concert. You got your 80s-90s funk, grunge and prog rock all into one. It would make for an interesting show to say the least.

That, sir, is the correct answer!

As for me, I'd pick;

Opener - Road Crew
Support - Guns n' Roses
Headline - Velvet Revolver


See what I did there?

Yeah, I was kind of joking, but on further consideration that would be kind of awesome, wouldn't it?

In all seriousness I'd probably go for;

Opener - Nirvana
Support - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Headline - (old) Guns n' Roses

Those were my favorite bands, growing up. I'd be seriously hard pressed to find a gig that I'd enjoy more.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Chickenfoot different all the time? I thought Chickenfoot was a band that guys from other bands played in, not like a set group of people.  I know about the group that's touring right now, but is that the same Chickenfoot as 5 years ago?

#11 Posted by ShalashaskaUK666 (523 posts) -
@Out_On_Bail: Na m8 th Chickenfoot thats on tour now is 'brand new' as it were, never played together b4 and Satriani has never toured with a band b4.

Start off brutal, transitioning to lighter & more melodic. This could actually be feasible, too.

Oh man, having The Sword, Baronness, and Mastodon in the same concert? Fuck yes.

Opener:  High on Fire

Support: Mastodon

Headliner: Opeth

High on Fire covers the sludge metal, as well as Mastodon. Both Mastodon and Opeth cover the epic progressive metal, Opeth covers the death metal and overall gran finale. I've never seen Opeth live, but they must be amazing.

But I have seen Mastodon, it was only a 45 minute gig, but I can imagine how awesome a long 1 1\2 hour concert or a full 2 hour or so concert would be. they were great.

Also, for classic rock:

Opener: Boston

Support: Rush (this is like if we were in like...1977)

Headliner: Led Zeppelin

Boston is well rounded, Rush before Moving Pictures would fit in well with the hard rock atmosphere, Led Zeppelin is all around a perfect headliner.
