John Returns to Canada This Fall!

Legendary musician John Fogerty has announced his upcoming coast-to-coast Canadian tour kicking off in St. John’s,  Newfoundland on November 8. For the first time, this tour celebrates 1969 – the extraordinary year in which Fogerty wrote and produced THREE seminal albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival: BAYOU COUNTRY, GREEN RIVER, and WILLY AND THE POOR BOYS. Beginning with PROUD MARY, which quickly established him as an elite singer/songwriter, he wrote and produced an enormous volume of treasured recordings in a small amount of time that propelled Creedence Clearwater Revival to become the number one group in the world. The legacy of 1969 lives on with BORN ON THE BAYOU, GREEN RIVER, BAD MOON RISING, DOWN ON THE CORNER, and capped off with a song for the ages, FORTUNATE SON. All of this musical output occurred while the world’s cultural and political landscape was in upheaval. 1969 was an extraordinary time. The show will be centered around this year, but also include his complete catalog of hits. Pre-sale tickets go on sale Tuesday, May 20 right here on johnfogerty.com. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 23 at www.livenation.com. Complete tour listing below.

John Fogerty is a true American treasure, one of popular music’s all-time greatest singers, guitar players, and songwriters. His remarkable career began in his hometown of El Cerrito, California, soon earning massive popular and critical success with the one and only Creedence Clearwater Revival. As leader of CCR, Fogerty forged a distinctive, groundbreaking sound all his own, equal parts blues, country, pop, rockabilly, R&B, swamp boogie, and Southern fried rock ‘n’ roll, all united by his uniquely evocative lyrical perspective.

After Creedence Clearwater Revival called it quits in 1972, Fogerty embarked on what would prove to be an equally impressive solo career. Among its many highlights are 1975’s John Fogerty – featuring the rollicking ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’ – and 1985’s #1 phenomenon, Centrefield. With its trio of timeless hit singles, including ‘The Old Man Down The Road,’ ‘Rock And Roll Girls,’ and the irresistible title track, the multi-platinum collection marked Fogerty’s glorious return to the forefront of modern rock ‘n’ roll.

1997’s Blue Moon Swamp earned Fogerty further acclamation, as well as a Grammy Award for ‘Best Rock Album.’ Among his many other honors are induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the BMI Pop Music Awards’ prestigious ‘BMI Icon,’ and Performance Magazine’s ‘Theater Tour of the Year’ Award. In addition, Fogerty and ‘Centerfield’ were honored during the 2010 National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies – the first time the National Baseball Hall of Fame has immortalized a musician or song as part of the annual ceremonies.

In 2013, Fogerty released Wrote a Song for Everyone, a testament to the fact that the songs written by John Fogerty over the past forty-five years continue to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers.

  1. I’ve listened and enjoyed John Fogertys music for close to 50 years. Saw him live a couple of years ago and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen and I will enjoy his concert again this November in St. John’s, Nl.
    Thanks for coming back John!

  2. Just wondering when ordering tickets thru your site-what form of payment do you accept? and how mant tickets can we puchase?

  6. I have been a total fan of John’s music since the late 1969s and continue to listen to his fabulous sound today. I have all the CCR albums and John’s solo albums and was one of the few “fortunate sons” who managed to have my “Cosmo’s Factory” album cover autographed by John after his fantastic concert in St.John’s in 2012. Can’t wait to see him perform once again this coming November back at Mile One Centre here in St.John’s. ….John …your music is ageless and you continue to perform at the same level as you did all those years ago. Looking forward to another electrifying concert Thanks John for your contribution to music and for making our world a better place to be………rock on!!!!
