What was preached Saturday night was made official today.

John Fogerty is returning his “Fortunate Son in Concert” greatest-hits show to the Venetian Theater this fall, the dates running Sept. 14-Oct. 1. Fogerty told the audience at Saturday night’s performance that he would be back on the Strip in September to a wild response.

Tickets start at $59.50 (fees not included) and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Venetian.com/JohnFogerty and by calling (702) 414-9000 and (866) 641-7469.

A news release issued by AEG Live and the Venetian today said the original run of eight shows was sold out. This time around, Fogerty performs nine shows. Those dates: Sept. 14, 16-17, 21, 23-24, 28 and 30 and Oct. 1.

It is not a surprise that the rock legend has added more dates to the eight he banked in his first spree covering this month. The show was terrific, the biggest pure rock show in that venue and among the most electrifying of these mini-residencies we’ve seen in Las Vegas.

In the news release, Fogerty said: “It was the greatest rockin’ Las Vegas at the Venetian. I am overwhelmed and so grateful at the response we have had that we are going to bring my show, ‘Fortunate Son in Concert,’ back in September! Come join us next fall to shake things up rock ’n’ roll style.”

Said Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking of AEG Live Las Vegas: “Rock ’n’ roll is alive and well! One of the most iconic singers in music history treated his fans to eight nights worth of tremendous music.

“This residency was excellent in every single way, and we love being in business with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Fogerty so much that we’ve invited him back for more shows this fall.”

And from Venetian and Palazzo President and COO George Markantonis: “The amount of positive feedback we have received from guests and fans about John’s sold-out residency has been overwhelming. We hope fans who missed those shows will get the chance to see his passion and talent in the fall.”
