The official trailer has dropped for the new Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival At Royal Albert Hall, which drops on streaming services this Friday (September 16th). The film features the band’s legendary concert and new and archival documentary footage.
The eagerly-awaited live set will be released physically on November 14th and comes with a bonus CD of previously released hits.
The film, which is narrated by Jeff Bridges, was directed by Bob Smeaton — best known for his work on 1995’s Grammy-winning The Beatles Anthology and most recently, 2021’s critically acclaimed The Who Sell Out documentary. Creedence played two shows at the Albert Hall, hitting the hallowed venue on April 14th and 15th, 1970.
We caught up to Creedence’s co-founding drummer Doug Clifford, who recalled the band’s European trek and their famed Albert Hall performances: “We were over there to introduce ourselves to the European market. And, of course, the Beatles were Number One in record sales and we were Number Two. And I’m an athlete, I’m very competitive — I like winning. I like putting my best foot forward to achieve that goal in any, sort of, athletic activity. And if you’ve seen the footage on it, I’m, like, in a boxing ring and my drum kit is (laughs) my opponent.”
