John Fogerty knew exactly what he was going to do for his performance at Woodstock 50.
Amidst the current is-it-canceled, is-it-not-canceled rumors plaguing the festival, Fogerty said he had been planning on recreating Creedence Clearwater Revival’s performance at the original Woodstock in 1969. However, he said there had been red flags concerning the event for some time.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, he said, “They postponed announcing the tickets, and I remember reading a while ago that they didn’t have some of the permits. That just blew my mind. You’d think it would be the first thing you’d do and not the last thing. You got the sense there was some shakiness to this whole thing. But the first Woodstock happened more by people wishing for it to happen than any effort of great organization.”
