Adding to the tradition of one of college football’s premier bowl games, rock & roll legend John Fogerty will headline the Capital One Halftime Show during the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl on December 31, 2015. Fogerty’s appearance in South Florida continues the tradition of top entertainment showcased during the Capital One Orange Bowl halftime show.
One of popular music’s all-time great singers, guitar players and songwriters – with a career spanning six decades – John Fogerty earned massive popular and critical success with the one and only Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR). CCR is one of the most important and beloved bands in the history of rock, and Fogerty wrote, sang and produced their instantly recognizable classics: “Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Born on the Bayou,” and more. 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.
In 1972, Fogerty embarked on what would prove to be an equally impressive solo career. Among his many highlights are the 1975 album “John Fogerty” – featuring the rollicking single “Rockin’ All Over The World” – and 1985’s No. 1 phenomenon, “Centerfield.” 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.’ In 2013, Fogerty released his album “Wrote a Song for Everyone,” a testament to his impact on generations of music makers and music lovers.
