We have a special, unexpected treat today, as the 9:30 Club is presenting the legendary John Fogerty in concert at DAR Constitution Hall on Friday, Nov. 8.
The famous roots rocker will be playing the classic album, “Cosmo’s Factory,” by his former band Creedance Clearwater Revival, along with other hits. The quadruple platinum “Cosmo’s Factory” put CCR on the map with such songs as “Travelin’ Band” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain.”
As a way to say thanks to our loyal readers, We Love DC is giving away a pair of tickets to this John Fogerty show before you can buy them. (They go on sale to the public on Friday, June 14, at 10am.)
Fogerty–singer, songwriter and guitarist–has sold more than 100 million records, earning 18 gold albums and 10 platinum albums. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, won the Grammy Award for his album Blue Moon Swamp in 1997, and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005. In addition, Fogerty and his #1 phenomenal recording “Centerfield” were 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.
Fogerty released his newest album, “Wrote A Song For Everyone,” on May 28, and it quickly rose to #3 on Billboard, the highest-debuting album of his entire career. Rolling Stone gave the album a rare five-star review. A celebration of his iconic songbook, the album is a collection of 14 songs: 12 classics and deep tracks (CCR and solo material) from his remarkable canon of hits recorded in collaboration with today’s biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds, plus two brand new solo songs, including the new single and video “Mystic Highway.”
