“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.”
This month, the renowned musician Fogerty sold-out eight shows, wowed audiences and received rave reviews at The Venetian Theatre. John Fogerty returns for another residency September 14 – October 1, 2016.
“Rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well! One of the most iconic singers in music history treated his fans to eight nights worth of tremendous music. This residency was excellent in every single way and we love being in business with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, John Fogerty so much that we’ve invited him back for more shows this fall, ” said Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking at AEG Live Las Vegas.
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. Performances will take place September 14 – October 1, 2016.
“The amount of positive feedback we have received from guests and fans about John’s sold out residency has been overwhelming. We hope fans who missed those shows will get the chance to see his passion and talent in the fall,” said George Markantonis, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo Convention Center.
With a career spanning more than 50 years, Fogerty is hailed as one of the most influential musicians in rock history.

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.
