John Fogerty adds more dates to Vegas residency

Legendary singer/songwriter/guitarist John Fogerty returns to the theatre at The Venetian  Las Vegas for an encore residency this fall.

"It was the greatest rockin' Las Vegas at The Venetian,” remarked Fogerty. “I am overwhelmed and so grateful at the response we have had that we are going to bring my show, Fortunate Son in Concert, back in September! Come join us next fall to shake things up rock 'n' roll style."

He just sold out eight shows there and returns for another residency Sept. 14–Oct. 1, 2016. Tickets for Fortunate Son in Concert, produced and directed by Ken Ehrlich, Raj Kapoor and Julie Fogerty in association with AEG Live, go on sale Feb. 5.

Attendees will enjoy performances of iconic Creedence Clearwater Revival classics including “Fortunate Son,” “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” and “Up Around The Bend” as well as solo hits such as “Centerfield, “Mystic Highway” and many more.

With a career spanning more than 50 years, Fogerty is hailed as one of the most influential musicians in rock history. Fogerty wrote, sang and produced numerous classic hits including “Born on the Bayou,” “Green River,” “Proud Mary” and “Bad Moon Rising,” which lead him to be named one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists (No. 40), 100 Greatest Songwriters (No. 40) and 100 Greatest Singers (No. 72) by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Earning induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, he now adds author to his long list of accomplishments with his memoir Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music released last fall. The autobiographical account takes readers through the highs and lows of Fogerty’s life and musical career as a member of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a solo artist.

Tickets start at $59.50 (plus applicable fees) and go on sale Friday, February 5 at 10 a.m. PDT at any Venetian or Palazzo Box Office, online at or by calling (702) 414-9000 or (866) 641-7469.
