Fogerty schedules Tampa show for Oct. 27

   John Fogerty, who after  40 years of solo work is still known as the frontman and songwriter for Creedence Clearwater Revival, is coming to Tampa. He'll play in Morsani Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts at 8 p.m. Oct. 27.

   With CCR, Fogerty wrote and sang some of the best-known songs in rock music history, including "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising" and "Down on the Corner." His solo career hasn't been as powerful, although it has produced some respectable hits, including "Centerfield," "Rockin' All Over the World" and "The Old Man Down the Road."
   His latest album, "Wrote a Song for Everyone," released last month on his 68th birthday, comprises reworkings of CCR hits, with Fogerty joined by the Foo Fighters, Jennifer Hudson, My Morning Jacket and slew of others.
   Tickets for the Tampa show go on sale at noon Friday, June 21. They start at $59 plus service charge. Call 813-229-7827 or go to
