Following his run on the ongoing Vote for Change tour, John Fogerty will launch his own headlining tour Nov. 8 at Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium. At deadline, 11 stops were confirmed in such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago and Boston; more dates are expected.
The former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman is heading out in support of his latest studio album, "Déjà Vu All Over Again." Released last month by Geffen Records/Interscope, the set debuted at No. 23 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 37,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
While the album's title track is a politically charged song that draws comparisons between the war in Iraq and the Vietnam War, the rest of the set is far more lighthearted. "I'm a rock'n'roll musician, and at the time I was growing up, the first order of business for rock'n'roll was to have fun," Fogerty recently told Billboard.
On Friday, Fogerty kicked off a stint on the Vote for Change tour with Bruce Springsteen and R.E.M. in Philadelphia. So far, he has been performing "Centerfield," the new album's title track and CCR's "Fortunate Son," as well as joining in on Springsteen's "The Promised Land."
That leg of the tour plays tonight (Oct. 5) in St. Paul, Minn. (with Bright Eyes rounding out the bill) and Friday in Orlando, Fla. (with Tracy Chapman). Fogerty will also take part in Monday's all-star finale in Washington, D.C., and will join Springsteen and Jackson Browne at a just announced Oct. 13 show in New Jersey.
