KAMLOOPS - For John Fogerty, 1969 marks a successful year penning songs and performing with his band Creedence Clearwater Revival, so it's no wonder he chose it as the theme of his latest tour scheduled to make a stop in Kamloops this July.

Celebrating his 69th birthday during the 2015 leg of the ‘1969’ World Tour, a concert series that celebrates the year Creedence Clearwater Revival released three albums, the tour was recently expanded to include more stops.

The 1969 songs were creatively inspired and written during a time of world social and political upheaval. While Fogerty will concentrate on 1969, he'll include many other songs from his catalogue of hits.

Though CCR broke up in 1972, Fogerty moved on to a successful solo career. In 1975 he released the album 'John Fogerty', including the hit Rockin' All Over the World. In 1985 the album 'Centrefield' was launched with three hits, The Old Man Down the Road, Rock and Roll Girls and Centrefield. His success continued into the '90s, with a Grammy for Best Rock Album for 'Blue Moon Swamp'. Fogerty has multiple awards and honours to his name.

The tour began last November and included a stop in Penticton during the opening month. It was named one of the top-20 global concert tours for 2014 by Pollstar. A stop in Kamloops is now planned for July 25 at the Interior Savings Centre and the following night Fogerty will take his tour to Prince George.

Fogerty is also releasing an autobiography, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music, later this year.

Ticket pre-sales for the Kamloops concert begin Tuesday, March 24 and will go on sale to the general public on Friday.
