John Fogerty – Live By Request

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

 

Grammy-winning rock legend John Fogerty will light up the night as the Emmy Award-winning LIVE BY REQUEST returns to television. Airing live on Saturday, November 7 from 8-10 p.m. on PBS stations across the continent—this interactive concert provides a unique way for fans to request favorite tunes and personally talk to their music idol.

 

For more than four decades, John Fogerty has been an American treasure: one of the most revered and influential artists to emerge in the ’60s, and still a vital part of the musical landscape. As lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a Grammy-winning, chart-topping solo artist, Fogerty’s sound has encompassed everything from blues to country and southern swamp rock and roll. Known as one of the greatest songwriters, singers and guitarists of all time, Fogerty was inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

 

LIVE BY REQUEST is a live superstar concert event that redefines the music television experience and is controlled by fan interaction. It is the only television program where viewers actually create the artist’s set list and have the chance to speak to the musician. With the premiere PBS special, LIVE BY REQUEST will fully engage viewers across multiple media platforms for the first time via live interactive video requests, call-in requests and text, email and social network requests.
