John Fogerty talking Woodstock w/ David Fricke (and singing) at 92Y during tour
John Fogerty may have dropped out of Woodstock 50, but he’ll be talking about the 50th anniversary of the iconic counterculture festival at NYC’s 92Y on August 8. Joining him in conversation is veteran music journalist and Rolling Stone writer David Fricke, and music historian and producer Andy Zax who is the executive producer of the massive, 38-CD Woodstock – Back to the Garden: The Definitive 50th Anniversary Archive box set. In addition to the conversation, there will be “a special performance by Fogerty of some of his classic songs.” Tickets are on sale.
While he’s not part of Woodstock 50, which is now happening at the Baltimore area’s Merriweather Post Pavilion (and hasn’t announced a lineup), Fogerty is playing a special Woodstock 50th Anniversary show at the festival’s original location, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on August 18 (tickets) which falls almost 50 years to the day of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s performance there. That’s part of his My 50 Year Trip Tour that hits NYC at Radio City Music Hall on August 15 (tickets).
This is also not Fogerty’s first talk at 92Y, as he was in conversation with Alan Light back in 2015 and you can listen to an archive of that below.
Also upcoming at 92Y but entirely not related to Woodstock: Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth will be talking about the upcoming reboot of Beverly Hills 90210 at 92Y on August 5 as well as presenting a screening of the BH90210 premiere. Tickets are on sale.
Other artists who officially dropped off Woodstock 50 include Jay-Z, The Raconteurs, Dead & Co, Country Joe McDonald, and former Lovin’ Spoonful frontman John Sebastian.
