As a fan of John Fogerty and CCR since their very first recording in 1968 I was thrilled to get the opportunity to see him in concert. If there was any apprehension that maybe he may have lost a step, as I have seen in some other entertainers, it was quickly put to rest as soon as I heard the opening riffs of Born on the Bayou. He is still the Boss, the title he had before Springsteen fans appropiated it. What a show. He still has the pipes and there is a reason he is in the Hall of Fame as a rock guitarist. I have been fortunate to see a few concerts of some of the biggest names in the entertainment field and until Friday night I use to rank Neil Diamond as my favorite concert, now Neil is in second place. Also, I agree with the comments already made in reference to CCR not being mentioned. There was no attempt to hide the fact that John was a part of CCR, the albums and awards that he recieved as part of the group as well as his solo work were all listed. However, it was John Fogerty that was in concert and not CCR so the promo, including the ad for his new album, was entirely justifed. I am just glad I had the opportunity to see it in person, even if it did take me three days to get my voice back.

CCR 'rocked the foundations' from 1967 to 1972 and John Fogerty, at age 67, 'rocked the foundations ' of Mile One Centre on Sept. 7 and 8, 2012. His concert was, without a doubt, the best I've ever seen and one that I will always remember. Fogerty's strong, distinctive voice and mastery of the guitar have not diminished in the slightest, over the years, and he showed why he's truly one of the greatest rock 'n roll icons. Keep rockin', John Fogerty !!!.

I was at the show on Saturday night, and he put on a great performance. Very well directed and could sing along to every song.

John Fogerty's show was hands down the best show I have ever seen. I thought the production was brilliant. The the pre-show opening clips were fantastic. I don't know what the reviewer is talking about seems he has to say something negative.... Some folks like that..The little clips and story were something really cool. Rather than just sit and watch crew set up stage we got a glimpse into John and his personal journey. WONDERFUL!!! No negative what so ever.. What a wonderful experience. I will never forget this night. Never has a show and performer given so much. Thank you John and crew!
