It was like a gathering of American greats on the Late Show when John Fogerty performed at the invitation of the program’s outgoing host, David Letterman.
Over the years we’ve had such tremendous music. And no greater than tonight,” Letterman told the audience as Fogerty took the stage. Fogerty didn’t disappoint with a rocking medley of his classic songs "Travelin' Band," "Proud Mary" and "Fortunate Son".
The veteran singer will use his stint on Letterman as a warm up for his U.S. 1969 tour which kicks off next month. It's shaping as a big year for the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman; Fogerty will also release his autobiography, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music (published by Little Brown) this October. On his 1969 tour, he'll perform material from across his career, though the shows will focus on the year CCR released three top 10 hits -- Bayou County, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys.
