John Fogerty rocks Encore Theater like never ever before

Denise Truscello John Fogerty wraps his second perform at Repetition Theater over Memorial Day Weekend.

Thursday, May 25, 2017|2 a.m.

Prior to John Fogerty took the stage on May 19 to open his second run of programs in the luxurious, 1,500-seat Repetition Theater, his longtime keyboardist Bob Malone marched in front of the drape to inform a fast tale of his first visit to Las Vegas, one in which his pockets were empty till he hit a fruit machine for a hundred bucks. He described it as a spiritual experience.

More vital, Malone estimated the Fogerty shows were the first loud rock concerts to be kept in this venue, which has actually notoriously hosted BeyoncĂ©, Garth Brooks and Girl Gaga. If Friday night’s show wasn’t the loudest, it had to be the most rockin’. After a short video showcased Fogerty’s pride in composing “Proud Mary”– and that Elvis Presley performed it in Las Vegas– the drape went up and the rockin’ started, kicking things off with the 1969 Creedence Clearwater Revival classic.

Fogerty, who turns 72 on Might 28, brought limitless energy to the stage, relatively getting stronger in voice and guitar chops as the night went on. He kept the Vegas energy opting for a flashing neon indication throughout “Suzie Q” and presented his son and support guitarist Shane before an emotional duet of “Oh! Susanna,” the Stephen Foster song that first brought in the older Fogerty to a life of music. (The family affair continued when his other son, Tyler, hit the phase for some wild shuffle-dancing and singing responsibilities on “Good Golly Miss Molly.”)

Playing all the CCR hits plus a few of his own, Fogerty’s repertoire goes on permanently. But it was his energy and guitar that prevented this Encore Theater show from turning stodgy or pedantic. This was a rock concert, pure and basic. Another fast video sector informed the story of his long-lost 1969 Rickenbacker Sunburst guitar, utilized in the CCR heyday, given up when the band liquified, recovered by his partner 40-plus years later on and surprise-gifted under the Christmas tree simply months back. Watching Fogerty play “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” and then wail through “I Put a Spell on You” with the guitar and amplifier he used at Woodstock? That’s a priceless music moment right there, in Las Vegas or anywhere else.

Fogerty returns to Repetition Theater on May 27 and 28 at 8 p.m. For details, call 702-770-9966 or visit wynnlasvegas.com.
