John Fogerty Debuts ‘My 50 Year Trip’ in Vegas: Set List, Photos, Video
John Fogerty launched his new Las Vegas residency, My 50 Year Trip, at the Wynn's Encore Theater Wednesday night.
The set list celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock along with Creedence Clearwater Revival’s long list of classic hit songs.
A highlight package of video clips, interviews and performance audio greeted the rock legend as he walked onstage. Accompanied by his nine-piece band, including his 28-year-old son Shane, Fogerty began the performance with “Born on the Bayou” before diving into a litany of other fan favorites including “Lookin’ Out My Back Door,” “Fortunate Son” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain.”
Other set highlights included covers of the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends,” the Who’s “My Generation” and two Sly and the Family Stone songs, “Everyday People” and “Dance to the Music.”
During a performance of “Susie Q,” dancers in ‘60s-inspired attire moved through the aisles as faux flowers fell from the ceiling, much to the delight of the capacity crowd.
Enhancing the evening’s charm, vintage photographs from Woodstock were projected onscreen, along with images of Fogerty from the era. He also performed with his “Acme” guitar, the same instrument he originally used during his iconic festival performance with CCR.
Fogerty's 50 Year Trip continues with various performances scheduled through the end of April.
