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.”
In the spirit of Venice, The Venetian is a little piece of romantic Italy right here in Las Vegas. The Venetian is an "all-suite" hotel, with rooms accented with plush linens and Italian marble. The 4,027 suites are divided into two towers: The 36-story Venetian Tower that offers guests a taste of luxurious Las Vegas and the Venezia suites, which guarantee 12 floors of high-end elegance. The top five floors are the hotel's highest level of luxury with its private access, concierge lounge, upgraded features and even a dedicated staff.
The flagship of Venetian nightlife is TAO, an ultra-hip nightclub located inside of TAO Asian Bistro. V Bar is The Venetian's super smooth ultra lounge, made by the owners of New York City's club Lotus and Los Angeles' super swank Sunset Room.
The Venetian features 19 restaurants including Thomas Keller's award-winning French restaurant Bouchon, Mario Batali's B&B Ristorante, Aquaknox for fresh seafood and the 42,000 square foot TAO Asian Bistro. There's also the food court inside the Canal Shoppes for those looking for a quick bite.
Guests can float along The Grand Canal Shops in an authentic Italian gondola ride and pass stores like Burberry and Kenneth Cole along the way. And if you haven't caught a real celeb, on the street in Vegas, you can head over to Madame Tussauds to check out a wax version.
