John Fogerty ‘Wrote a Song for Everyone,’ Set to Deliver it Live This Fall
John Fogerty will head out on the road this fall to support his recent new solo album, Wrote a Song for Everyone.
The former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman will get things started with appearances at the Interlocken Festival in Arrington, Virginia on September 5-8, and then will perform two nights at The Lawn at Riverfront Park in Nashville September 27-28.
The headlining tour will kick off in earnest two weeks later with a show at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on October 10, and will run through a three-night stand at New York’s Beacon Theater November 12-14. Other cities on the tour include Tulsa, Dallas, Orlando, Atlantic City, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. If your city is not on the list you may still be in luck, as a press release notes that more dates are expected to be added soon.
During all of the October and November shows, Fogerty will be playing CCR albums in their entirety, along with other hits. Depending on the date, he will play either Bayou Country from 1969 or 1970’s Cosmo’s Factory.
Wrote a Song for Everyone is made up primarily of new recordings of hit songs from throughout Fogerty’s career — both with CCR and as a solo artist. Almost all have been reworked into duets, and features guests including the Foo Fighters, Keith Urban, My Morning Jacket, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Dawes and Bob Seger.
The album is the singer-songwriter’s ninth solo album and was released on May 28, which also was Fogerty’s 68th birthday. The record debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 albums charts, and also features two new songs: “Mystic Highway” and “Train of Fools.” Other classic songs re-recorded for the album include “Fortunate Son,” “Lodi,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain” and the title track.
“Who’ll Stop the Rain,” strangely, features both Miranda Lambert and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello in one of the strangest collaborations on the album.
