John Fogerty will cross Canada with a double-barreled Revival show this fall.
The legendary swamp-rocker’s upcoming 16-date tour – tellingly (if rather wordily) titled Wrote a Song for Everyone: John Fogerty Performs Live! The Albums of Creedence Clearwater Revival – will see the 66-year-old singer-guitarist performing CCR’s 1969 LP Bayou Country and 1970’s Cosmo’s Factory in their entirety on alternate nights, along with a second set of hits.
Fogerty’s trek kicks off Sept. 8 with a Cosmo’s performance in St. John’s and works its way west, wrapping up with a Bayou show in Victoria on Sept. 29. See below for a full list of dates, cities and venues, along with the featured album.
Tickets for most shows go on sale Friday May 4 or Saturday May 5 at Ticketmaster, and are priced between $20 and $70 before fees and taxes. In Toronto, tickets max out at $100. Willie Nelson’s son Lukas Nelson and his band The Promise of the Real are the opening act.
Fogerty’s vast catalog of hits includes CCR classics like Suzie Q, Proud Mary, Down on the Corner, Born on the Bayou, Have You Ever Seen the Rain and Fortunate Son, along with solo chart-toppers such as Rockin’ All Over the World, Old Man Down the Road, Rock and Roll Girls and Centerfield. His upcoming album – also titled Wrote a Song for Everyone and due this fall – will feature newly recorded versions of his oldies along with new songs, performed by Fogerty and a slate of guest stars.
