GOD BLESS EVERYONE WITH GRATITUDE IN THEIR HEARTS!!! X ONovember 24, 2014 at 9:54 pm #4387
Hey Robert, thank you for your long review! GOOD Job!That was so mysterious about John getting a bloody lip? gee whiz…but like the true professional that he is, he knows that the show must go on, and on he went.
WOW! Now that’s what a true rock and roll legend does!
I hope John’s alright and that the swelling is under control with ice packs x 24 hours. (ice only works to reduce and contain swelling for the first 24 hours.)
Anyhow – thanks again for your important notes. X ONovember 24, 2014 at 9:45 pm #4386
YES! Rock and ROLL gAL!! I know that you speak from experience, and after seeing John and his amazing BAND perform, you speak from the heart of a knowing, eye-witness to John’s incredible concerts.
There really isn’t a better show out there these days….truth be told.
John is a true living legend from the 60’s, and he’s the handiwork of God to see such energy, vim and vigor out there on stage….he’s restored to his youth, but in the morning afterwards,
I wonder if his legs hurt or his throat is sore….?
We’re all not getting any younger these days, which is why IF YOU ARE IN THE TOUR ZONE, I URGE YOU TO GET TO A FOGERTY SHOW AND SHAKE IT FOR ALL YOU’RE WORTH, CREEDENCE FANS!!!!
I don’t know if John Fogerty will be playing in my area any time soon, but a girl can sure hope.
Anyhow – thank you for the review, and please tell us more, like the set list – or if you don’t remember the set list, just name the songs that stood out to you – in any order that you can.
Seeing one of Johns shows is a sort of sensory overload…you just hear one great song after another, and then John is sitting down and doing some creative stuff on guitar and piano that most of us have never laid witness to, but we look forward to getting such an opportunity.
I saw something to that effect at the GRAMMY MUSEUM EVENT, where John played a progression of cords and explained how he laid down tracks to some of his greatest songs ever written, and it was such a simple and organic process, it seemed like he was saying that anybody could do it, but we all know better.
Only a precious handful of people in the history of mankind has been blessed with such a gift.
John is one such artist who can really write a great rock song, a great delta sound and a great country song….he’s done it all and he’s still touring to prove it.
WOW. Great review…Thank you RnR Gal. X O
And she’s right, my friends. It ain’t going to last forever, because nobody lives forever.
Not you / not me / not the greatest show on earth either.
God love you and GET OUT TO THE SHOW!!!!November 21, 2014 at 8:38 pm #4294
HEY, HEY, HEY GRAD SCHOOL!!!
Thank you for posting the set list!!! I LOVE READING about all those great songs that magically
come to LIFE when John Fogerty & BAND! come on stage for a show.
I also love your new abbreviations for those wonderful songs.
RamBULL Tam…ha ha ha!
737 tb and on and on…..
HA HA! *** You are the PhD of all Creedence fans, AL!!!!
And I agree with your concluding hypothesis;
PROUD MARY being the most perfectly crafted song in the history of the universe.
I NEVER grow tired of hearing that wonderful song….as only John Fogerty can do it.
AMAZING fun stuff…… HUGS to everyone!!!!

Hey Dan, thank you for that story about John’s younger version of himself playing BORN ON THE BAYOU on video projection, then he joins in LIVE! That has got to be a great thing to witness!!!
All of John’s shows are creative bursts of new, sunflowering ideas….which is why I never miss one
that’s in my neck of the swamp!
What a creative introduction to one of the best rock anthems ever written!!!
People down in the southern most parts of the USA treat BOTB like it’s their national anthem. The pride just swells up from their hearts whenever they talk about and hear this great song.
Fogerty brought lots of national attention to the southern states with his album, Bayou Country.
It still resonates today and I’m glad about it.November 13, 2014 at 9:49 pm #4068
Robert, thank you so much for your nice review!
You said it! You are so very lucky to have this opportunity to see John & BAND in action!
I’m so happy for you and please keep the reviews coming!!!November 12, 2014 at 11:27 pm #4023
Hey Grad School!
Thank you for dropping us a few notes about John’s show! IT SOUNDED VERY ORIGINAL with special, creative touches by the master himself!!!
I LOVE IT WHEN JOHN DOES THOSE “LIVE” THINGS!!!!
((( YOU KNOW? )))
Opening with Born on the Bayou had to be killer good!
It’s COOL that he performed that guitar demo thing! TELL US MORE, AL!!! C’mon now!!!
Midnight Special is a very Creedencie-thing, I love that song alot!
Keep on Chooglin is always a HOT jammin’ song, I love it!
I’m super happy to see that Mystic Highway is still on the set list, it being one of John’s newest songs that he created and I love, love, LOVE hearing that song on my CD player.
Then John did a piano demonstration?? GEE WHIZ!!! I never saw such a cool thing – EVER!
He is really pulling out all the stops with his creativity, isn’t he? That is very nice.
Long As I Can See The Light is such a blue, bluesy feeling’ song…it just makes you feel blue.
What a special delight to hear it done in piano fashion….I bet he did it with shades of deep purple, midnight blue and all the shades of black.
Old Man totally ROCKS the roof off of the place and of course,
the heavens Crave to hear the most perfect song in the known universe,
What can you do about Proud Mary? She gets more perfect every time she is played on the good side of Midnight. Oh, oh, OH!
LOVE her the best and love her the most.
You ROCK!!!! X O X O X OOctober 31, 2014 at 9:15 pm #3822
Gosh, all these stories are really GREAT! I’ve seen John Fogerty in concert 22 to 33 different times and each show was unique and FUN – and the music just kept sounding BETTER & B E T T E R !!!Over the years, John just kept on getting better, which is a testament to the man’s work ethic like nothin’ else, y;all.
I’ve danced in the front row, the middle section and all the way back in the back row of many different venues; indoors and outdoors and twice by the sea! WOW! DANCING IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO, FRIENDS.
I have LOVED meeting some really died-in-the-cotton fans, THEY WERE REALLY COOL, and we’ve all enjoyed the music so much more by reaching out and forming friendships.
I cannot say that ONE show was BETTER than the other show – I really just can’t justify doing that.
I always feel so incredibly BLESSED to be at any show. But one show that really stands out so brightly to me is the small show that John hosted at the Grammy Museum, where alot of his personal effects were on display for all of us to see and admire. Then John spoke with a man who asked some really good questions, and John explained HOW he writes his fabulous songs! OH!!! He did a demonstration for all of us gathered in his “Classroom of Song Genesis” and we heard and saw firsthand how John builds a song…from the clear blue sky!
That was quite a wonderful moment for me and I’ll never forget it. I was so lucky that I won a ticket to this show, which was solid sold-out and my good friends Dan & Carol met me there and we all sat in the back row to see the show – it was amazing and we ran into Darlene over there and saw John & Julie & the whole family over there. It was neat to hear John play his guitar – just everyday stuff that he does all the time, but none of his fans EVER get to hear. It was neat to see how easily his hands found the notes; he proficiently knows where all the notes “live.”
That was quite the amazing show and it wasn’t all that long ago.
As a matter of fact, that show was the most recent show for me…..It’s time for me to get to another one of his exemplary rock concerts, and what will I have to do?
Fly up to Vancouver?
Oh gosh….I’m no jet setter!!!!
PEACE / LOVE / CREEDENCE!!!!October 26, 2014 at 9:57 am #3756

DAN! You are da MAN!
Thank you for writing your story here, and you do have such a flair for writing good tales!!! I can just picture seeing John’s name lit up in those ultra-fancy VEGAS style lights…the image burns very brightly in my mind….I’m so glad that you & Carol and the other died-in-the-cotton fans made it out to VEGAS. ++++ Your COVE sounds just magical; I am so happy for you and Carol and the fam.
One thing that I learned from getting to know you Dan is that you love it when others enjoy the magic and majesty of John Fogerty’s music. I have learned to take on that sort of appreciation myself. There is nothing that makes me happier than to witness the joy in the faces of others when we’re all at a concert and John is the main attraction.
We almost never had any of this fun…..
we came awful close to losing John forever, but isn’t it nice when goodness overcomes bad times?
UH HUH!!! YES!!!
What is it about those old songs of Johns (and also his newer songs) that bring so much joy to us fans?
Fogerty is that rare caliber of songwriter that we all wish we were ourselves.
He is able to pick a thought, find a melody and then marry the two in a timeless, beautiful song.
A person hears the song once, and that’s enough to HOOK THEM FOR LIFE!!!!
John will always find legions of fans who adore his music.
I am happy that his family also follows him everywhere that he goes and that his sons both play guitar with huge capabilities. It’s in their blood – it’s in their Fogerty DNA to play music and to keep rowdy happiness alive in this world.
Thank you for circling around and writing more details about John Fogerty’s LAS VEGAS show and I’m glad to hear that everything is coming up roses for you and your wonderful family.
Love and hugs to you, from my little clan…..
* PEACE / LOVE / & CREEDENCE! *October 26, 2014 at 9:28 am #3752
What songs do you think John will perform?
Fortunate Son (for sure!)
Run Through the Jungle ( I HOPE!)
Maybe no selection from his REVIVAL album, har har har!October 26, 2014 at 9:27 am #3751
This is really exciting news! The music of John Fogerty will be an inspiration to all who attend, those lucky, lucky souls!!!October 23, 2014 at 9:14 pm #3718
Hey all….got a set list?
TELL US SOME MORE OF THE FUN SHOW, wont’ you?
