John Fogerty, the greatest “triple threat” in rock, is Fraser Valley bound

john-fogerty-6

I’ve always thought that John Fogerty was the ultimate “triple threat”.

When he was the leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival—and after that, on much of his solo work—he was an incredibly gifted songwriter and a kick-ass swamp-rock guitar player.

And then there’s that voice: just so raspy and raw and full of fire.

Add ’em up and you’ve got the most valuable player in rock, in my unhumble opinion.

Anybody else in the Metro Vancouver area who shares those feelings for Fogerty should be pleased to note that he’s just announced a show at the Abbotsford Centre on November 28.

The big bonus this time around is that he’ll be focusing on the three CCR albums that were released in 1969, Bayou CountryGreen River, and Willy and the Poor Boys.

That means that his setlist could include: “Born On the Bayou”, “Penthouse Pauper”, “Proud Mary”, “Green River”, “Bad Moon Rising”, “Lodi”, “Down on the Corner”, “Fortunate Son”, and “Effigy”.

Fogerty wrote all of those songs himself, sang them, and played all the lead guitar.

Unf***in’ believable.

Tix for the Fogerty show go on sale next Friday (May 23) at 10 am and you can find them right here.
