Raves Pour In For Fogerty Live Show

On tour in support of ‘Revival,' out now on Fantasy Records, John Fogerty drawing raves for live show

Unbelievable raves have been coming in for John Fogerty's electrifying live shows:

"The man and that legacy unfurled, freed from the confines of classic-rock radio, and brought back to raucous, rollicking life...The cumulative effect was a masterful, triumphant concert that fused Fogerty's spirit, songs, and showmanship into an indomitable, indelible whole."

- Jonathan Perry, Boston Globe

"He and his five-piece band tore into "Good Golly Miss Molly," the first salvo in two hours of music that found the former leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival in the finest form of his solo career."

-Nick Cristiano, Philadelphia Inquirer

"A still-vibrant, still-rocking and surprisingly still-relevant classic-rock icon who electrified a positively gushing crowd at the Orpheum on Tuesday night. With a bona fide comeback record named "Revival" in tow, the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman looked and played like a man just paroled, supercharging through such early hits as the familiar stuttering riff of "Green River" and the hillbilly stomp of "Lookin' Out My Back Door" with fervor and pure joy."

-Christopher Blagg, Boston Herald

"Moving across the stage with guitar in hand and a smile from ear to ear, John Fogerty looked more like a teenager having a blast with his buddies in the garage than a veteran Rock and Roll Hall of Famer."

-Ray Kelly, Springfield Republican

"By the smile on Fogerty's face and bounce to his step, it was obvious that he loved to be playing the swampy classics that meet at the intersection of rock, country, blues and even gospel as much as the fans loved to hear him doing them...The "Revival" songs blended seamlessly with the CCR songs, like the long-lost pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that were hiding out under the couch until they completed the picture with an enjoyable snap."

- Mark Bialczak, Syracuse Post-Standard
