Inductee John Fogerty Will Headline the 2020 Annual Celebration
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee John Fogerty comes to the Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, February 22, 2020 for the Broward Performing Arts Foundation’s 2020 Annual Celebration to support the education and enrichment programs at the Broward Center. The evening’s festivities begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner, the show at 8 p.m. and a post-show party at 10 p.m.
Fogerty was named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 100 Greatest Guitarists and Top 100 Singers of all time. He is an eight-time Grammy Award® nominee and took home that trophy for Best Rock Album for Blue Moon Swamp.
As lead singer and lead guitarist of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Fogerty’s prolific songwriting helped pen some of the most memorable songs in rock and roll, including “Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “Fortunate Son.” His solo career skyrocketed in the 1980s with his chart-topping single “Centerfield.” Inducted into both the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he also wrote the hits “Change in the Weather” and “Rock and Roll Girls,” among others.
“John Fogerty is a true rock icon and we are delighted that he’ll take the stage this year at the Annual Celebration,” said Kelley Shanley, president and CEO of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. “It’s always one of the most memorable nights of the season. Not only will our guests have a fabulous evening, but students in our community will also benefit, as the funds raised will support the education and enrichment programs here at the Broward Center.”
