Creedence Clearwater Revived

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN UKRAINE, THE ROCK BAND CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL WILL BE PERFORMING THEIR BEST HITS.

Brothers Tom and John Fogerts formed Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1967 in San Francisco. Their brilliant cover versions of Dale Hawkins ‘ “Suzie Q” and Screamin Jay Hawkins’ “I Put A Spell On You” became instant hits, and turned CCR into the most popular rock band, not only in America, but the world, winning the title of “Best band in the world 1970”. A performance at the famous Woodstock festival along with a series of subsequent singles that made the top charts such as,  “Bad Moon Rising”, “Green River”, “Lucky Son”, “Down on the Corner”, “Travelin’ Band”, “Up Around the Bend” and “Lookin’ Out My Back Door”, helped turn CCR into rock legends of their time. Unfortunately, regardless of their talent, the original band had the most unprofitable contract in record history, which eventually led to their break up in 1972.

In the late 80’s, CCR founder Tom Fogert resumed touring throughout Europe, Asia and Australia with British band Animals’ guitarist Johnny “Guitar” Williamson. The group continued to perform even after the tragic death of Fogerty in 1990. The current configuration of CCR is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Replacing Fogerty is lead vocalist Pete Barton, whose powerful voice critics have nicknamed “the Size of Texas”, as well as, rock veteran Geoff Hammond, legendary drummer Denny Lane, guitarist Graham Pollock from the Hollies, and bass guitarist Alan Sagar, a legend of country rock from the 70s band Slack Alice.

Initially, the concert in Kyiv was scheduled for April 9, but it was postponed due to quarantine. The new concert date is November 18, 2020. The show will be held in the October Palace. The ticket prices vary from 300 to 2 000 UAH.
