John Fogerty is one of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold more than 100 million albums. On Oct. 17 he will perform at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa in support of his recent release, “Wrote a Song for Everyone.”
Tickets start at $60 and go on sale Sept. 5.
The new album entered the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at No. 3, selling 51,319 copies in its first week. This marks the Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s highest debuting album of his career (including Creedence Clearwater Revival releases). In addition, this is Fogerty’s highest charting record since 1985's “Centerfield” hit No. 1.
Produced by Fogerty, “Wrote a Song for Everyone” is generating widespread praise and has received Rolling Stone’s highest rating— a rare five stars.
A celebration of Fogerty’s iconic songbook, the album is a collection of 14 songs: 12 classics and deep tracks (Creedence Clearwater Revival 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.”
“Wrote a Song for Everybody” marks the singer, songwriter and guitarist’s ninth studio solo album since disbanding Creedence Clearwater Revival. Mixed by Bob Clearmountain, it was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville except for "Proud Mary," which was recorded in New Orleans with Allen Toussaint and the Rebirth Brass Band. Fogerty recorded “Fortunate Son” with Foo Fighters at their 606 studio using the legendary Neve recording console featured in the No. 1 iTunes documentary “Sound City.”
