JOHN FOGERTY GEARING UP FOR FALL TOUR

John Fogerty is gearing up for his next string of dates, which kicks off on Friday (September 24th) at Napa, California’s Oxbow River Stage.

Fogerty has a trio of new stops just added to the itinerary — November 14th at Washington, D.C.’s The Anthem; November 16th at Durham, North Carolina’s Durham Performing Arts Center; and November 17th at Macon, Georgia’s Macon City Auditorium.

With over 50 years worth of classics that have become embodiments of post-war American culture, we asked John Fogerty how he comes to terms with writing the songs we all live by: “Well, I’m very proud of that — and I’m obviously the songwriter — and when you’re able to create something from nothing it’s very special, it’s also quite mystical. Whenever I start up again and start writing, I always have to go through this same process and it’s frustrating and anxiety-ridden. Meaning, when you try and start to write then the first stuff you do is really crap. And then you do some more stuff — and it’s really crap. But you gotta to keep sitting down as if you’ve have a day job at this every day and you’re doing this job, which is writing songs, for days and days and days — sometimes months.”
