Rock legend John Fogerty coming to Victoria’s Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre this summer


Looking for an evening out with one of America’s top musical treasures? Well, you’re in luck!

In the peak heat and joy of summer, on Friday August 23rd, John Fogerty will be making an appearance in Victoria with special guest, Hearty Har at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. 

This tour, titled The Celebration Tour is in honour of his songs from band Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR), who he was the lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter for. 

Fogerty’s work forged a distinctive, groundbreaking sound, that’s equal parts blues, country, pop, rockabilly, R&B, swamp boogie, and Southern fried rock ‘n’ roll—united by his uniquely evocative lyrical perspective. 

Additionally, Fogerty is a Grammy winner, has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. 

He is also the only musician to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame for his song, “Centerfield,” which remains a staple at baseball stadiums across the country. 

Many of his hit songs, released both as a solo artist and while in CCR, have sold over 100 million records. Highlights include “Proud Mary,” “Susie Q,” “Fortunate son,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Bad Moon Rising,” and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain,” among many others.

General admission tickets for Fogerty’s Celebration Tour go on sale on Friday, April 19th at 10 a.m.—set your alarms and get ready!

Platinum ticket packages are already available for purchase and include front row, floor sections and other close-to-the-stage seating. Prices for these areas range from around $130 to $374.
