John Fogerty will give a rare, one-off performance at Los Angeles' El Rey Theatre on May 28th to celebrate both his birthday and the release of his new album, Wrote a Song for Everyone.

A limited number of presale tickets for members of Fogerty's fan club will be available starting on May 14th on his website; the show will be filmed and broadcast live on AXS TV starting at 8:30 p.m. PST.

Wrote a Song for Everyone is Fogerty's ninth solo effort since disbanding Creedence Clearwater Revival and is something of a career retrospective. The singer-songwriter teamed up with a slew of artists from the worlds of rock, pop, country and more to rerecord 12 of his most well-known songs from his years with CCR and as a solo artist.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
