Between the two of them, co-headliners John Fogerty and Jackson Browne cover some serious musical acreage. In the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Fogerty’s Creedence Clearwater Revival appealed to nearly everyone; country and rock audiences alike have long flocked to the group’s anthemic folk style. Browne’s songwriting straddles genre, epitomizing the fusion of poetics and big-arena catchiness–a combination that’s earned him a spot in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Both performers have an appeal that’s built to last as well as a knack for bottling rock and roll and making magic happen, over and over again.
