JOHN MELLENCAMP AND JOHN FOGERTY SUMMER TOUR 2005
TWO ROCK LEGENDS TOURING TOGETHER - MELLENCAMP + FOGERTY AND THEIR HITS HIT THE ROAD THIS SUMMER

John Mellencamp will be joined by John Fogerty on tour this summer for a series of concert dates that will bring the two legendary American rockers together before audiences nationwide over a two month period. The first twenty dates have just been announced with the kick off set for Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center on June 24th.

Presented by VH1 and VH1 Classic, the first leg of the tour will bring the contemporary and classic hit songs of Mellencamp and Fogerty to Chicago, Indianapolis, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Detroit and other North and Southeastern and Midwestern markets. Western dates are expected for the latter part of the summer.

Mellencamp, who has just completed his first tour in three years, commented on the prospect of working with John Fogerty this summer, “It’s a very fulfilling situation for me to be able to go out and tour with one of my musical heroes.” He added, “The response to the initial dates has been very gratifying and now we’re really looking forward to going out this summer with John and keeping these songs alive.”

Words & Music: John Mellencamp’s Greatest Hits the 2CD RIAA Platinum-certified set from Island/Universal will be the source of most of the repertoire Mellencamp will perform in concert this summer. It includes such iconic hits as “Jack & Diane,” “Small Town,” “Pink Houses,” “R.O.C.K. In The U.S.A.,” “Authority Song” and more. He’ll also be highlighting his latest, “Walk Tall,” that is one of two newly recorded tracks on the Words & Music collection.

John Fogerty will perform his own full set highlighting his many solo hits and the songs he created and sang as part of Creedence Clearwater Revival including “Proud Mary,” “Old Man Down The Road,” “Fortunate Son,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “ Centerfield” and songs from his latest Geffen album, Deja vu All Over Again. Mellencamp and Fogerty will also perform together during the course of the show. Commenting on touring with Mellencamp, Fogerty stated, "I've long admired John's music since the days of 'little pink houses.' He always brings great intensity and energy to his live performance and I'm looking forward to some rockin' shows this summer."

Fogerty sounded like dog poop when he played before the Super Bowl.
