Creedence Clearwater Revisited Coming to Sunset Station!

On May 5, 2018, Creedence Clearwater Revisited will play the Sunset Station Outdoor Amphitheater.

Creedence Clearwater Revival disbanded in 1972 following a brief but brilliant catalogue of rock classics, many of which still get radio play to this day. In 1995, following the band’s well-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two years prior, the classic rhythm section of Stu Cook and Doug Clifford put together Creedence Clearwater Revisited, as a means by which to continue playing these songs for a live audience.

 

 

The group has had many lineup changes since first forming in 1995, with an earlier lineup having included Elliot Easton, the classic guitarist for The Cars. The group’s current lineup teams Cook and Clifford up with fellow musicians Kurt Griffey, Steve Gunner, and Dan McGuinness. With the group’s ongoing touring commitments and efforts to keep these classic rock hits alive, it’s no surprise they continue to draw in an audience anywhere they play. And the latest lineup just may be their strongest to date.

Creedence Clearwater Revisited’s show on May 5 will definitely be a worthwhile attraction for anyone who’s interested in hearing these classic cuts done up live by the classic CCR rhythm section. I’ll see you at Sunset Station!

A die-hard fan of classic rock and metal music, Taylor has been writing album and concert reviews since he was 16 years old, and continues to do so, having done well over 1,000 reviews. He is also a fan of video gaming and cinema, and has reviewed a number of games and films as well, old and new alike. His thorough and honest (some would say brutally honest) reviewing style has won him the respect of hundreds of music fans and musicians alike, both local and abroad, and the ire of just as many others. Despite being one of the youngest attendees at classic hard rock/metal shows around Vegas, he is also one of the most knowledgeable, having gained the unofficial nickname of “The Eddie Trunk of Las Vegas.” In addition to reviews, Taylor has written and self-published three books on classic hard rock bands, and is a regular participant in rock and roll trivia contests. Taylor also holds a masters degree in special education from the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), and has appeared on the hit History Channel television series Pawn Stars. His dream is to be able to one day make a living from writing music books and reviews.
