John Fogerty Announces Additional “1969” U.S. Tour Dates

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

Mohegan Sun Arena to host tour on June 25th; Autobiography Fortunate Son set for release October 6th

Beginning May 2nd, John Fogerty’s highly-anticipated worldwide “1969” tour will launch its U.S. dates with a special appearance, May 2nd, at the Beale Street Music Festival.  Newly announced dates include stops in Hawaii, Baltimore, NY, Philly, Cleveland, Chicago, Seattle, Denver and Uncasville, CT for a Thursday, June 25th concert.  The U.S. portion of the “1969” tour is set to conclude on August 9th in Albuquerque.  Mohegan Sun Arena’s concert is set for 7:30pm, and the CCR frontman will be playing treasured classics like “Fortunate Son,” “Proud Mary” and so many more from his catalogue of other all-time hits.

Tickets are $44.50 and go on sale Friday, April 3rd through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, April 4th, subject to availability.

And, coming October 6, 2015, from Little, Brown and Company, is the long-anticipated memoir by John Fogerty, titled FORTUNATE SON: My Life, My Music. With John Fogerty writing hit after hit, Creedence Clearwater Revival burst on the music scene with an energy so bright, his songs outsold The Beatles in 1969. Then, just as quickly, that CCR fire burned out in a series of internal band struggles that left the music world without the influence of one of its brightest stars for over two decades.

“I’m excited to share my story and my life with you,” said Fogerty.  “You’re going to hear where it all started, my passion to become the best musician I could be.  You’ll travel down some rough roads, but that road leads to something beautiful.  My book won’t be sugar coated!  It’s all in there.”

Creedence Clearwater Revival is one of the most important and beloved bands in the history of Rock ‘n Roll, and the story that John Fogerty’s memoir tells will keep music lovers and avid readers captivated.  Fogerty wrote, sang and produced the iconic classics “Born on the Bayou,” “Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising” and so many more. Now he reveals how he brought CCR to the top of the charts and how, one year later, CCR was falling apart. Their amazing talents and culturally-prophetic songs, however, have endured for decades despite the series of personal and legal issues. FORTUNATE SON takes readers from Fogerty’s northern California roots, through Creedence’s success, his retreat from music and public life, to Fogerty’s hard-won revival as a solo artist who finally, through it all, found love.

John Fogerty was songwriter, lead singer and lead guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival and is one of Rock’s most influential musicians and writers. Fogerty has been named one of the 100 Greatest Singers and one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists by Rolling Stone and his most recent album was named one of RS’s 10 Best Albums of 2013.

The Rascals “Once Upon A Dream” Comes To Mohegan Sun

Monday, May 13th, 2013

Back together again for the first time in 40 years; 1 performance only; Live in the Arena on August 30th

UNCASVILLE, CT (May 13, 2013) — Following a critically acclaimed, sold out Broadway run, “Once Upon A Dream Starring The Rascals” takes on Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday, August 30th for an 8:00pm show.  Playing together for the first time in 40 years, “Once Upon A Dream Starring The Rascals” is produced and directed by Steven Van Zandt and lighting/projection wizard Marc Brickman.  The show is completely original in its concept, a BioConcert.

Tickets are $45.00 and are sale now through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call any Ticketmaster Charge by Phone number; 1.800.745.3000 or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets may also be purchased at the Mohegan Sun Box Office, subject to availability.

“Once Upon A Dream Starring The Rascals” is a Rock concert and a Broadway show, a Rock N’ Soul dance party meets the Jersey Boys. In addition to the concert experience, the history of The Rascals and the history of the ‘60’s are told through their music (in fact, at thirty songs, the most comprehensive concert they’ve ever done), and dramaticized by a combination of narration, filmed scenes of actors acting out key moments in the band’s history, news footage and archival footage of the band.

There are ele­ments of stag­ing and light design never seen before, just as Marc Brick­man has done in his pre­vi­ous ground­break­ing work with Bruce Spring­steen, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Blue Man Group, the open­ing cer­e­mony of the Olympics, and Roger Waters’ recent ‘The Wall’ tour.

The show debuted at the The Capi­tol The­atre in Port Chester, New York.  The the­ater was uniquely qual­i­fied for this debut, as owner Peter Shapiro (Brook­lyn Bowl, Wet­lands, U2 3D) restored it to its 1926 mag­nif­i­cence while equip­ping it with a state of the art lighting, projection and sound system.

“To do jus­tice to the Ras­cals impor­tance, I’ve writ­ten a show for them that is just as unique as they are.  More than just a come­back or reunion, the show will remind audi­ences how uniquely inspi­ra­tional, enter­tain­ing, and his­tor­i­cally impor­tant the Ras­cals’ music is. Their music was unique not only in its great­ness, but through their hit sin­gles they told the entire story of the six­ties.” - Steven Van Zandt
