Iconic singer, songwriter and guitarist JOHN FOGERTY–who kicked off his much-anticipated national concert tour at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE Thursday, October 10 in Los Angeles–was joined last night (Thursday, October 17) by Billy Gibbons of American blues-rock trio ZZ Top in Tulsa, OK, where both were performing sold-out shows at The Joint. They teamed up on the CCR classic “Born on the Bayou” and ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man.”
“The all-too-brief session will stand as one of the tallest highlights that’s come down the pike in quite a while. Wow!” says ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. “’Twuz killer diller. John & Co. certainly were on top of the game and the bonus of participation is quite the reward.”
On the month-long tour, which concludes with three shows at the Beacon Theatre in NYC (November 12-14), FOGERTY will perform his classic Creedence Clearwater Revival albums Cosmos Factory and Bayou Country for the first time ever in the U.S., along with other FOGERTY gems. JOHN FOGERTY–one of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold over 100 million albums–has been making music that continues to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers, and his fall tour will be a joyous celebration of his iconic songbook of hits.
