John Fogarty

This concert on Wednesday July 29 at Brandt Centre coincides with the start of Queen City Ex. If you have a ticket to it, you get free gate admission.

Fogarty, of course, is a founding member of Creedance Clearwater Revival. Since that group broke up, he’s also found a fair bit of success as a solo act.

This concert is part of what’s billed as the “1969 Tour” which commemorates the three albums that Fogarty wrote and produced with CCR in that year: Bayou Country, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys. Those albums produced such hits as “Proud Mary”, “Bad Moon Rising” and “Fortunate Son”.

Fogerty will be playing songs from his entire catalogue during the show, but the focus will be on the three albums from 1969. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m., and tickets range from $20-$79.50.

Here’s video from 1970 of CCR playing “Fortunate Son” at a concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall

  1. Oh no not another cover act. Who’s opening? Elvis Priestly?

    I saw Fogerty at David Letterman in 2009, he seemed so old then, though he rocked and was excellent. Six years later, still playing. BTW, I’ve lost all interest in late night TV since Dave left. It’s just fully daft. Hopefully Colbert can return a little zing to balance out the prom king humour.
