John Fogerty performs classic 70s hit City Of New Orleans

John Fogerty and his family are streaming video of a quarantine jam performance of the 1970s classic, “City Of New Orleans.”

Originally written and recorded by Chicago-based singer-songwriter Steve Goodman in 1971, the tune became a US Top 20 hit a year later for Arlo Guthrie and, again, for Willie Nelson in 1984.

Fogerty is scheduled to play a fall series of dates as part of a residency at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.

The nine-show run at the Encore Theater in November will mark the final dates of the rocker’s extensive “My 50 Year Trip” tour, which he launched last year while marking the anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s milestone performance at Woodstock.

Last fall, Fogerty released “50 Year Trip: Live at Red Rocks”; recorded at Red Rock Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO last June, the project captures the guitarist in concert on his anniversary tour with a setlist that mixes solo hits with CCR classics.
