John Fogerty Concert
Sunday, May 8, 2022 | 7 p.m. at St. Augustine Amphitheatre
American singer/songwriter, award-winning guitarist and rock icon John Fogerty is returning to St. Augustine for a live concert at the Amphitheatre on Sunday, May 8, 2022. On this world tour, he will be celebrating his 50th anniversary in music as well as the release of his 2019 album, “50 Year Trip: Live at Red Rocks.”
Fogerty's early career began with the popular rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR), and he is now a solo recording artist. Fogerty was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, won a Grammy Award for his album Blue Moon Swamp in 1997 and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005.
Creedence Clearwater Revival started as The Golliwogs in 1965, and their singles were largely ignored by the music community. Then in 1967, after Fogerty was discharged from the United States military, the band changed their name to Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band was responsible for some of the best known songs in rock n' roll, including Proud Mary, Bad Moon Risingand Fortunate Son.
Fogerty has been recording solo since the 1980s, with numerous hits that include Change in the Weather,Rock and Roll Girlsand Centerfield,which was 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. He's also called the "Father of the Flannel Shirt."
