The “1969” World Tour began last November with a cross country trek of Canada. Seventeen shows in all, many of which sold out, and the crowds were screaming for more. Fogerty’s “1969” Tour was named one of the Top 20 Global Concert Tours of 2014 by Pollstar. Praise for Fogerty’s delivery, as well as for his exceptionally talented band, came from the Hamilton Spectator, stating: “…this band that Fogerty is front now is better than that little four-piece garage band known as Creedence Clearwater Revival.”
The “1969” World Tour features all those great CCR songs that made Fogerty a household name. Fogerty’s music, his lyrics and his voice, resounded through an amazing and never duplicated release of three separate albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival (Bayou Country, Green River, and Willy and the Poor Boys). In that year – 1969 – Fogerty gave the nation, even the world, an emotional and intellectual marker forever burned within our collective psyche. Now, in his 69th year, Fogerty is calling us back, to re-invigorate thos ties that bind us, with his upcoming “1969” World Tour.
Fogerty has also been hard at work on his first autobiography, which is now set for release this fall. The tour continues throughout May, June and July with a previously announced show at the iconic Hollywood Bowl, scheduled for July 15. “1969” stops in the Hoosier state just before.
Fogerty will play the Murat Theatre at the Old National Centre at 8 p.m. Sunday, July 5. Reserved seating costs $29.50, $49.50 or $79.75. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 20. Visit johnfogerty.com for more information.
