The ex-Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman has lined up 15 new concerts — a nine-gig run beginning September 20 and ending October 7 and a six-show stand from January 10 to January 20, 2018.

In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Fogerty explained that his Las Vegas concerts aren’t much different from his other shows, except that “there’s a little more glitz in production.” He adds with a laugh, “Not a whole lot — I don’t come out in a sparkly suit or anything.”

Fans coming out to the concerts can expect to hear plenty of CCR classics, as well as some gems from John’s solo career. Fogerty’s shows also are a family affair, as his backing band features his sons Shane and Tyler.

“It’s just great,” the 72-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer tells Parade. “We make music together. We travel together. You know, we certainly are with each other all day, like having meals together and stuff. So it’s kind of like being…way back in Little League and Cub Scouts [as a parent], except now everybody is getting paid.”

Tickets for the upcoming Las Vegas shows are available now at the Wynn Las Vegas box office and

In addition to his Vegas shows, Fogerty has a few other upcoming U.S. performances scheduled, beginning with a July 14 show in Aurora, Illinois, and including an August 26 appearance at the Lockn’ Festival in Arrington, Virginia. He currently is playing a series of concerts in Europe.
