John Fogerty Tickets
Fiddlers Green Amphitheatre | Englewood, Colorado
Former lead guitarist, singer and frontman of Creedence Clearwater Revival John Fogerty was responsible for some of the catchiest hit singles of 1969. Now celebrating his musical successes of that era, he heads to Fiddlers Green Amphitheatre on Saturday 8th August on his acclaimed 1969 Tour, for a night of nostalgia and quality music!
John Fogerty made the rankings in both Rolling Stone magazine's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists and the list of 100 Greatest Singers, and found fame in the late 1960s/early 1970s as the lead singer and lead guitarist for roots rock/swamp rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival. CCR released their debut self-titled album and also had their first hit single, "Susie Q" in 1968, with their peak success happening in 1969 when they released three top 10 hits and, ultimately, multi-platinum albums — Bayou County, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys. With these releases they scored four top five hit singles, including “Proud Mary” and “Bad Moon Rising”. It was during this time that the band played Woodstock Festival and even outsold the Beatles. Having subsequently refused to play any CCR songs since the band's dissolution in 1972, due to disputes with fellow band members and the success of his solo career, Fogerty made the decision to perform his old Creedence material regularly in concert after an inspirational visit to the grave site of blues legend Robert Johnson in 1990.
Now on his extended 1969 Tour, Fogerty revisits his successes of that era, saying:
"I am at a wonderful place in my life. I am playing the music that I love and wrote…No lawyers, lawsuits, or angry ex-band members will stop me ever again from singing my songs. I am going to continue to tour and play all my songs every single night I am out on the road."
