Music legend John Fogerty brings “Rollin’ on the River” tour to Shell Place
The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo is pleased to announce rock legend John Fogerty will perform live in concert at Shell Place at MacDonald Island Park on Sunday, October 23.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome John Fogerty to SMS Equipment Stadium at Shell Place this fall,” said Annette Antoniak, Chief Executive Officer of the RRC. “This tour, which includes hits from Creedence Clearwater Revival, is a great opportunity for residents to enjoy a legendary musical performer in our home community.”
John Fogerty is a true American treasure, one of popular music’s all-time greatest singers, guitar players, and songwriters. His remarkable career began with the one and only Creedence Clearwater Revival. 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.
After Creedence Clearwater Revival called it quits in 1972, Fogerty embarked on what would prove to be an equally impressive solo career. Among its many highlights are 1975’s John Fogerty – featuring the rollicking ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’ – and 1985’s #1 phenomenon, Centerfield.
1997’s Blue Moon Swamp earned Fogerty further acclamation, as well as a Grammy Award for ‘Best Rock Album.’ Among his many other honors are induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the BMI Pop Music Awards’ prestigious ‘BMI Icon,’ and Performance Magazine’s ‘Theater Tour of the Year’ Award.
In 2013, Fogerty released Wrote a Song for Everyone, a testament to the fact that the songs written by John Fogerty over the past forty-five years continue to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers.
