John Fogerty Travels Back in Time to 1969
Former Creedence Clearwater Revival lead singer and formidable solo artist in his own right John Fogerty is feeling reminiscent. He’s just decided to hit the road for his “1969” world tour, in which he’ll play material released that very same year, including CCR’s Bayou Country, Green River, and Willy and the Poor Boys. He’s only announced Canadian dates so far, kicking things off on November 7 at Mile One Centre in St. John’s, NL, before heading to Halifax, NS; Montreal, QC; Rama, ON; Oshawa, ON; Hamilton, ON; Sudbury, ON; Winnipeg, MB; Moose Jaw, SK; Saskatoon, SK; Edmonton, AB; Calgary, AB; Dawson Creek, BC; Penticon, BC; Victoria, BC; and many more. Since this has been dubbed a “world tour”, we’re sure that more dates are going to be announced. Tickets for this leg of the tour are available now.
Born May 28, 1945, John Cameron Fogerty came into the musical spotlight as the lead singer and guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival. CCR, comprised of Fogerty, his brother, Tom, Doug Clifford, and Stu Cook started in 1965 as The Golliwogs. They changed their name in 1966, after John Fogerty was nearly drafted into the Vietnam War. The band released their first self-titled album in 1968, featuring the hit single, “Susie Q”.
