    I have been extremely lucky to have seen John and his band in concert numerous times. Some shows were in grand theaters, some were in run down places that had seen better days. Some were indoors and others were outdoors. Some had bright sunny days and some had rain. Some shows were in huge venues while others were in a small club or a venue about the size of my backyard. Some were in Australia, some in North America and some in Europe. Some of them I had somebody to go with, others I went to alone. Some shows I met other great fans who have participated on John’s various forums while other shows I didn’t see anyone I knew. Some of them I had a VIP front row ticket with access to sound check and a meet and greet backstage with John. Some of them I was in the VERY last row. Some of them were just John and his band. Some of them had opening acts (or John was the opening act). But every single show was special. I am so thankful that I have been able to experience such great music live so many times. There is no way I could rank the top 10 shows. But the NUMERO UNO show is EASY! It was my very first one–the Acura Music Festival in West Palm Beach Florida in 2000. Marcia Ball went on stage first, then Aaron Neville and finally John Fogerty!!! I absolutely loved Marcia and Aaron and didn’t want their sets to end but at the same time I couldn’t wait for their sets to end so the man I had wanted to see live for over 20 years could finally come on stage and R-O-C-K the joint! I was absolutely mesmerized while John belted out hit after hit. When it was over I didn’t know if I would ever see John Fogerty again, but I didn’t care because I had seen him once and he was INCREDIBLE!!!

    Yes indeed. Vegas ROCKED! I can’t wait for the 1969 shows in Canada. Woohoo!

    Hey Steve,

    How are those RabbitOhs doing? Long time no hear from Mr. Rabbit on the John Fogerty Forum. I’m glad to see you posting again. :)

    I am SO sorry to hear this SAD news. Rock on Herminator! It was an honor to have met such a kind, sweet and gentle man. The California shows were always so special because we got to spend time with Herm and Rockin’ Grandma Donna.

    Oh my gosh! I just noticed the typo–Halifax snow! Yikes! I hope that typo isn’t prophetic. Southern chickens and snow DO NOT mix, but regardless of the November weather I’m gonna do my best to go see Mr. Fogerty in the beautiful city of Halifax NS. Woohoo!

    Hi Pam, unless something has changed the legendary Jackson Browne is opening for John in Holmdel. I’m almost as excited about seeing Jackson Browne as I am seeing John Fogerty again–almost, not quite. Woohoo! See y’all there!

    Hmmmmm….apparently Hoodoo Bob is in charge of reviewing the Durant OK show. Miss Darlene is AWOL. I wish I had known it was you Hoodoo Bob that was sitting a few seats away from me. I would have made sure I said hello. But anyway thanks for a WONDERFUL review!!! Rock On!!!

    See y’all in Toledo in about a month. Woohoo!

    Just got home from Frisco, locked the front door….

    It all started on Friday afternoon when I picked up Darlene at DFW. We drove up to Durant OK to see John Fogerty perform another rocking concert. Darlene is in charge of that show’s details. Then we drove back to Dallas afterwards.

    Saturday I drove up to Frisco TX to see Mr. B and Mr. F. Woohoo! Those parrotheads know how to ROCK. They LOVED John Fogerty. They were standing and dancing the entire time. It was wonderful to see.

    That GOLDEN ticket is worth every penny! Woohoo!

    #2957

    Hey Mike! Go Bucs! Not really! :) Hahaha….

    That’s one of John’s shows on my radar. Hopefully it will work out and I can come.

    #2956

    Let’s hope so. Chicken is itching for another California road trip! Woohoo!

    #2955

    Hey Cypress Knee! Welcome back to John’s forum. I remember meeting you at the Ryman in Nashville. Rock on!

    #2954

    Rock on River Boat Queen! I keep having a dream that I have a plane ticket to Nawlins this evening. Then I head to the JazzFest venue, meet up with Darlene and camp out so we are first in line when they open the gates tomorrow morning. Then we run to the front of the stage and wait ALL day long in the HOT sun, dealing with porta-potties and nasty fried food that isn’t good for us. But then John and the band hit the stage and it is all worth every bit of sacrifice. Woohoo! Rock on John! But then I wake up and realize I can’t see Mr. F until June. I hate it when that happens!

    Yippee! Today is Jimmy Buffett day in sunny warm Raleigh, NC and Chicken has a front row ticket! I can’t wait for Jimmy and John to play together this summer. I hope that they will join each other on stage for a song or two instead of doing two completely separate sets.
