Legendary musician John Fogerty has announced his upcoming coast-to-coast Canadian tour stopping in Penticton at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Nov. 27.

For the first time, this tour celebrates 1969 – the year in which Fogerty wrote and produced three seminal albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival: Bayou Country, Green River, and Willy And The Poor Boys. Beginning with Proud Mary, which quickly established him as an elite singer/songwriter, he wrote and produced an enormous volume of treasured recordings in a small amount of time that propelled Creedence Clearwater Revival to become the number one group in the world.

The legacy of 1969 lives on with Born On The Bayou, Green River, Bad Moon Rising, Down On The Corner, and capped off with a song for the ages, Fortunate Son. All of this musical output occurred while the world’s cultural and political landscape was in upheaval. The show will be centered around this year, but also include his complete catalogue of hits.

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 Rockin’ All Over The World – and 1985’s No. 1 phenomenon, Centrefield. With its trio of timeless hit singles, including The Old Man Down The Road, Rock And Roll Girls, and the irresistible title track, the multi-platinum collection marked Fogerty’s glorious return to the forefront of modern rock ‘n’ roll.

1997’s Blue Moon Swamp earned Fogerty further acclamation, as well as a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Among his many other honours are induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the BMI Pop Music Awards’ prestigious BMI Icon. In 2013, Fogerty released Wrote a Song for Everyone, a testament to the fact that the songs written by John Fogerty over the past 45 years continue to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers. In addition, Fogerty and Centerfield were honored during the 2010 National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies – the first time the National Baseball Hall of Fame has immortalized a musician or song as part of the annual ceremonies.
