Rock legend John Fogerty continues to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of his iconic songbook that includes such luminary titles as “Proud Mary,” “Fortunate Son,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Bad Moon Rising” with more U.S. dates announced today.
Following a successful first run of his all-new show, “My 50 Year Trip”, Wynn Las Vegas headliner John Fogerty will return to the stage at Encore Theater for an extended run in fall 2019. Inspired by the 50th anniversary of Woodstock and his iconic hit parade with Creedence Clearwater Revival, “My 50 Year Trip” recreates the sounds and spirit of 1969 in this celebratory six-night engagement, Nov. 6-16. Produced in association with AEG Presents, tickets for all performances will be available for purchase starting Friday, April 26 at 10 a.m. PDT.
In addition, John will also perform at several major summer festivals including the 50th Anniversary Jazz Fest in New Orleans, Woodstock 50 and Bourbon & Beyond Festival in Louisville among others. He will also head to Europe for a summer tour performing in Poland, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
50 years ago, in 1969, Fogerty wrote, recorded and released three amazing albums in one year with Creedence Clearwater Revival. First, in January of ’69, just a short time after completing his military service, the album Bayou Country was released. The iconic“Proud Mary,” a reflective song he penned as soon as he was discharged, rose to #2 on the singles chart. The same album also carried us all into the Louisiana backcountry with “Born on the Bayou”. By August, with the release of Green River, two of his biggest tracks, “Green River” and “Bad Moon Rising” both spiked the U.S. chart at #2. As if any artist being responsible for two of his group’s greatest albums in a single year isn’t amazing enough, Fogerty led CCR to another album debut in November of ’69. Willy and the Poor Boys, and its single “Down on the Corner” brought a happy, toe-tappin’ track to their fans and it reached #3 on the charts. Probably the most famous of Fogerty’s songs is, of course, “Fortunate Son” a protest song/anti-war anthem that became the mantra for a generation suspicious of those elites who blindly supported the use of military force, as many had seen in the Johnson administration and their supporters.
