Creedence Clearwater Revisited to Play Sioux Empire Fair
The Sioux Empire Fair is pleased to announce that Creedence Clearwater Revisted will be performing at the 74th Annual Sioux Empire Fair on Thursday, August 8 as part of the Grandstand Concert Series.
Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” may not have intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section (bass and drums respectively) from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits touchstones of a generation.
As fans who have experienced a Creedence Clearwater Revisited concert can attest, Stu and Cosmo found the right players. Lead singer/rhythm guitar player John Tristao, a powerful tenor with the energy to power songs, initially rose to prominence as lead singer for the band People when their hit “I Love You” bulleted into the top ten. The newest touring member of Creedence Clearwater Revisited is lead guitarist Kurt Griffey. As a guitarist, song writer, producer and performer, Griffey has recorded and toured with musicians including members of the Eagles, Foreigner, the Moody Blues, Wings, Lynyrd Skynryd, Santana, and Journey. Talented multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner rounds out the group. As Cosmo puts it, “Gun provides live all the overdubs that were on the records. He plays keyboard, acoustic guitar, percussion, harmonica and sings the high harmonies.”
The Creedence Clearwater Revisted concert will be FREE with paid gate admission. No confusing seating. No confusing ticket prices. FREE with paid gate admission, pure and simple. Creedence Clearwater Revisited joins Hunter Hayes, Kip Moore, and Hairball as part of the 2013 Grandstand Concert Series. Stay tuned this month as we continue to announce the line-up.
