Their hits are touchstones of a generation. They’ve sold millions of albums worldwide and their music continues to be among the most played on radio stations across the globe.
That phenomenon was Creedence Clearwater Revival and now Creedence Clearwater Revisited -- formed by the band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section so the supergroup’s songs could continue to be played live to legions of fans.
Tickets are on sale now for these six concerts in January and February. With a playlist that includes hits such as Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising, Green River, Travelin’ Band, Lookin’ Out My Back Door, Suzie Q, Down on the Corner, Fortunate Son, Who’ll Stop the Rain, fans are urged not to delay buying their tickets to shows in Tauranga, Auckland, New Plymouth, Wellington, Queenstown.
Concert promoter Craig Wilson of Premium Entertainment says “it’s an honour to have secured such legendary musicians for the summer tour”.
“Every song brought back memories from the '70s. The sound was sensational and original. The group still has it.”
