    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!

    #2913

    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.

    #2543

    Actually Mr. B is a one and a half hit wonder. “Come Monday” was a minor hit a few years before “Margaritaville”.

    CSG will be in Frisco, TX in June. The only thing better than a John Fogerty concert is a Fogerty/Buffett show. Woohoo!

    #2157

    I forgot to mention earlier that John had two backup singers. Does anyone know their names?

    #2138

    Yes, the Beacon was on fire Tuesday night which was a good thing since it was cold in NYC (not that bad but compared to sunny warm NC it was COLD in the Big Apple). I only got a little bit lost on the way to the show. I got on the C train instead of the 1 train–hmmm…..maybe I really do need glasses–but there was a handy dandy transfer to the 1 train at the 59th Street station so I wasn’t lost for very long. It was great to see a couple of our Forum friends from across the pond as well as one or two domestic Forum members. John forgot Shane’s solo on Old Man so Shane did some blistering guitar work on Fortunate Son instead. I’m kicking myself that I only signed up for 1 of the 3 nights at the Beacon. Anyway, here is Tuesday’s set list exactly as I wrote it down:

    Trav Band
    Born Bayou
    Bootleg
    Good Molly
    Pent Pauper
    Grave Train
    Chooglin
    Joy Life
    Grn River
    P-wille (not sure why I wrote a w instead of a v on my chicken scratch set list)
    Who Stop Rain
    Grapevine
    Look Back Door
    Lodi
    Mystic Hwy
    Ram Tam
    Hot Rod Hrt
    Almost Sat Nite
    Long See Lite
    Hey Tonite
    Mid Spec
    HYESTR
    Pretty Woman
    Down Corner
    Centerfield
    Up Around Bend
    Old Man
    Fort Son
    BMR

    Yes, indeed. John rocked Washington DC last night. There was a lady on the front row with a cool shirt that got John’s attention. The front said Since 1969. The back said my dad is the only man I have loved longer than John Fogerty. Then at the end right before Proud Mary John signed a baseball for a young boy on the other side of the front row. Here is the setlist in chicken scratch shorthand:

    737 Trav Band
    Ooby Dooby
    Ramble Tamble
    Lookin’ Back Door (Bob Malone squeeze box intro)
    Jungle Run
    Up Around Bend
    Before Accuse Me
    Baby Left Me
    Stop Rain (Woodstock story)
    Grapevine
    Long See Light
    C Field
    Green River
    Suzie Q
    Mystic Hwy
    Joy Life
    Hot Rod Hrt
    Born Bayou
    Chooglin
    Mid Special
    R+R Girls
    HYESTR
    Pretty W
    Hey 2nite
    Down Corner
    Old Man
    Fort Son

    Rock on John! See you in NYC! Woohoo!

    According to the official John Fogerty timepiece–i.e. the Timex on Chicken’s wrist–John and the band took the stage promptly at 7:17. Woohoo! What a show! Between daylight savings time ending, having to catch a 5:15 AM flight home from MSP and breaking a crown and being in dire need of a dentist I wasn’t entirely there last night. I finally caught my second wind around Pretty Woman and was up doing the chicken shuffle for the rest of the show. My apologies if I missed a song or added a phantom song that wasn’t played but it went something like this:

    Hey Tonight
    Born on the Bayou
    Bootleg
    Good Golly Miss Molly (talked about Little Richard having the perfect rock and roll voice)
    Penthouse Pauper
    Graveyard Train
    Chooglin’
    Joy of My Life (dedicated to Julie)
    Green River (talked about his family vacations at age 3 or 4)
    Porterville (John said off the mic to the band “I forgot to talk about this one. Oh well.”)
    Who Will Stop The Rain (cool, extended Woodstock story)
    Grapevine
    Lookin’ out my back door (fabulous squeeze box intro by Mr. Malone)
    Mystic Highway
    Ramble Tamble
    Hot Rod Heart
    Commotion
    Long as I can see the Light
    Midnight Special
    Have you ever seen the Rain
    Pretty woman
    Down on the Corner
    Centerfield
    Up around the Bend
    Old man down the Road
    Fortunate Son
    Bad Moon
    Proud Mary (the most perfect song in the universe)

    After all of my previous concerts at the DPAC they sent me a survey to rate my experience. When they asked what could they do better I always told them to book a John Fogerty concert. When I fill out the survey this time I reckon I will have to tell them to book ANOTHER John Fogerty concert.

    Hey Guessy Girl, thanks for the Paso Robles review. Have a great time tonight! And happy birthday to your son! What a coincidence! It was Chicken’s birthday too–the BIG kind where both numbers change. Since I already had other plans I had to skip the Nokia show in Los Angeles, but I tried to make up for it in Paso Robles and Berkeley where I got to hear the songs of Bayou Country and Cosmo’s Factory. Woohoo!

    Friday morning I was at the Atlantic Ocean. Eight hours and two plane rides later I was gazing at the beautiful San Francisco Bay. I fetched a rental car and headed down the 101 to a super nice venue at a winery in Paso Robles. Unfortunately Darlene wasn’t able to come so Herm was nice enough to let me borrow Rockin’ Grandma for an evening of rock and roll music. John played 33 songs in 2.5 hours. Nobody’s Here Anymore was the surprise of the night. Then there were the rarely played gems from Bayou Country Penthouse Pauper and Graveyard Train along with the not played so much recently Bootleg. And of course the best, most perfect song in the universe Proud Mary. All of that great music helped keep a short sleeved chicken warm on a COLD evening.

    After the show I headed back up the 101 to Salinas and then drove the rest of the way to SFO on Saturday morning. After a quick BART ride to fetch a yummy cream puff from Beard Papa’s downtown I headed across the Bay Bridge to the Greek in Berkeley. It was a nice, small and intimate venue. Once again it was freezing COLD but the music of Cosmo’s Factory quickly warmed me up. John played for about 2 hours and 20 minutes. Grapevine, Ooby Dooby, Before You Accuse Me, My Baby Left Me, Long As I Can See The Light and of course Ramble Tamble! Woohoo! I missed the old band members but the new ones ROCKED! It was a great birthday weekend of rock and roll. I can’t wait to do it again this weekend in Dallas and Houston with a side trip to Vegas to see Jimmy Buffett on Saturday night.
