WinStar World Casino and Resort proudly welcomes John Fogerty to the Global Event Center stage on Saturday, October 28, 2017!
John Fogerty is well known for being the lead singer, lead guitarist and principal songwriter of the band Creedence Clearwater Revival as well as for hits garnered during his solo career. Several Fogerty compositions appeared on Creedence Clearwater Revival, but cover versions of Dale Hawkins’ “Suzie Q” and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell on You” were the group’s first hit singles. With the release of Bayou Country it became the most popular rock band in America. Beginning with the two-sided gold hit “Proud Mary” (Number Two, 1969) b/w “Born on the Bayou,” Creedence dominated Top 40 radio for two years without disappointing the anticommercial element of the rock audience.
CCR’s rough-hewn rockers often dealt with political and cultural issues, and the quartet appeared at the Woodstock Festival. Creedence had seven major hit singles in 1969 and 1970, including “Bad Moon Rising” (Number Two, 1969), “Green River” (Number Two, 1969), “Fortunate Son” (Number 14, 1969), “Down on the Corner” (Number Three, 1969), “Travelin’ Band” (Number Two, 1970), “Up Around the Bend” (Number Four, 1970), and “Lookin’ Out My Back Door” (Number Two, 1970).
His solo career flourished with Centerfield (Number One, 1985), a typically simple, tuneful collection that sold 2 million copies and produced hit singles in “The Old Man Down the Road” (Number 10, 1985), “Rock and Roll Girls” (Number 20, 1985), and “Centerfield” (Number 44, 1985).
In 1997, Fogerty released Blue Moon Swamp; inspired by several trips to the Mississippi Delta, the album had taken over four years to make. It went on to win a Grammy for Best Rock Album, while the single “Southern Streamline” hit Number 67 on the C&W chart. Fogerty followed up the release with an extensive U.S. tour on which he played many CCR classics such as “Proud Mary” and “Fortunate Son” along with his new material; the live album Premonition (Number 29) was released the following year.
The show will start at 8:00 PM, with doors opening at 6:30 PM.
