His guitar, his voice, his presence. Awesome. Simply awesome.

After launching his latest tour, “1969”, in Canada last November, JOHN FOGERTY announces the continuation of his highly-anticipated world-wide excursion with U.S. dates set for early this summer. The tour is scheduled to begin in May with the first confirmed date scheduled at the legendary Hollywood Bowl on July 15th. More “1969” U.S. tour dates will be announced shortly.
Opening the Hollywood Bowl show will be Hearty Har, the psychedelic rock band fronted by Fogerty’s own sons, Tyler and Shane. Shane also does double-duty as a member of Fogerty’s band. Hearty Har were recently nominated as one of LA’s Best Bands.
Last November, the “1969” World Tour began with a cross-country trek of Canada. Seventeen shows in all, many of which sold-out, and the crowds were screaming for more. Fogerty’s “1969” Tour was named one of the Top 20 Global Concert Tours of 2014 by Pollstar. Reviews were nothing less than stellar, praising FOGERTY for his delivery, as well as the talents of his current band, with the Hamilton Spectator stating: “… this band that Fogerty is fronting now is probably better than that little four-piece garage band known as Creedence Clearwater Revival.”
FOGERTY’s music, his lyrics and his voice, resounded through an amazing and never-duplicated release of three separate albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival (Bayou Country, Green River, and Willy and the Poor Boys). In that single year,1969, FOGERTY gave the nation, even the world, an emotional and intellectual marker forever burned within our collective psyche. Now, in his 69th year, FOGERTY is calling us back, to re-invigorate those ties that bind us, with his upcoming “1969” World Tour.
With the amazing success of the Canadian tour, 2014 still ended on a sad note for Fogerty when the former members of CCR chose to sue its founder. FOGERTY has chosen to move forward, insisting, “No lawyers, lawsuits, or angry ex–band members will stop me ever again from singing my songs. I am going to continue to tour and play all my songs every single night I am out on the road.”
An auto-biography is set for release this fall.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
