    The concert that just keeps chooglin’

    John Fogerty (submitted)

    Most artists, no matter how many hits, have concert setlists that include a few songs that are of substandard quality, probably so that fans can go to the bathroom or get a beer. In fact, some artists have so many substandard songs that fans just sit in the corridors drinking beer and chatting until, finally, a hit or two are played.

    At a John Fogerty show, just plan on not peeing. The dude plays wall-to-wall hits. Seriously, look at this typical Fogerty setlist and tell me when YOU’D feel comfortable leaving for even five minutes!

    “Travelin’ Band.” “Bad Moon Rising.” “Up Around the Bend.” “Green River.” “Born on the Bayou.” “Proud Mary.” “Who’ll Stop the Rain.” “Lookin’ Out My Back Door.” “Lodi.” “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.” “Rock and Roll Girls.” “Center Field.” “Fortunate Son.” “Sweet Hitch Hiker.” “Keep on Chooglin’.” “Down on the Corner.” “Long as I Can See the Light.” “Run Through the Jungle.” “Susie Q.”

    See and hear these tunes – and the forever-young Fogerty – Saturday in the Mohegan Sun Arena. Opening are George Thorogood & the Destroyers (with excellent lead guitarist Jim Suhler) and Hearty Har.

    John Fogerty, 7 p.m. Sunday, Mohegan Sun Arena; $70.95 and up; mohegansun.com.
