John Fogerty is planning a world tour to honor his 50 years as a hit songwriter.
In a statement released Thursday, he says, "I bought a notebook in 1967 and wrote down some song titles. The first entry in my notebook is 'Proud Mary.' To think that she is 50 years old and how my song has had such an impact is hard to put into words. I know when I wrote those songs it was my dream to become the best musician I could be. Not to let anything get in my way, not even the Vietnam War. I am thrilled to celebrate this time and my songs including the iconic Woodstock festival.”
The 73-year-old, who is making a new album, starts another Las Vegas residency on October 10th at the Wynn.
