For the first time in Ukraine! Gold hits of the legendary band Creedence Clearwater Revival will sound in Kiev!

Brothers Tom and John Fogerty formed the Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1967 in San Francisco. Their ingenious cover versions of Dale Hawkins songs “Suzie Q” and Screamin Jay Hawkins “I Put A Spell On You” immediately became hits and turned CCR into the most popular rock band not only in America, but and won them the title of "The Best Band in the World 1970". The gold singles "Proud Mary" and "Born On The Bayou" did not leave the charts for more than a year. Performance at the famous Woodstock festival and a series of subsequent singles that have settled in the "top ten": "Bad Moon Rising", "Green River", "Fortunate Son", "Down On The Corner", "Travelin 'Band", "Up Around The Bend "and" Lookin 'Out My Back Door "turned CCR into a rock legend in life. Unfortunately, in addition to talents, the group also had the most unprofitable contract in the history of the record, which ultimately led to its disintegration in 1972.

In the late 80s, CCR founder Tom Fogerty resumed touring with European guitarist Johnnie Guitar Williamson for Europe, Asia, and Australia. The success of the Alliance of Anglo-American musicians was so colossal that even after the tragic death of Tom Fogherty in 1990, the group continued its performances, inviting the lead vocalist Pete Barton, who has been a member of Animals for more than 20 years and along with legends rhythm and blues by Steve Cropper, Spencer Davis and Mick Green.

The current composition of the group celebrates its 20th anniversary. Together with Pete Barton, whom music critics nicknamed the powerful voice “The Size Of Texas”, veterans of the rock come on the scene: Geoff Hammond, legendary drummer Denny Lane, guitarist Moody Blues and Wings' ally Paul McCartney; guitarist Graham Pollock of The Hollies; and bass player Alan Sagar, who came from 70s country rock legend, Slack Alice.

Their popularity in Europe and Australia is phenomenal: they performed in front of 80,000 spectators in Warsaw, gathered 50,000 in Turin, 35,000 in Rome, concerts in the Czech Republic, Italy, Germany and Poland regularly collect full houses. In two hours while the show lasts, the group brings down on fans a whole catalog of CCR gold classics: timeless hits "Have You Ever Seen the Rain", "Lodi", "Proud Mary", "Fortunate Son", "Who'll Stop the Rain" , "Run Thru the Jungle", "Suzi Q", which thousands of audiences sing with the group, turning the concert into an amazing celebration of the eternal music of Creedence!
