Fogerty couldn’t play Woodstock 50, so he used his money for charity

Woodstock 50 was canceled over the summer, although all of the artists confirmed for the event got paid even though they didn’t perform. Well, John Fogerty decided to do something good with that money.

The Rock and Roll hall of Famer donated the money to build a home for a veteran, with the ground breaking ceremony set for November 11th, a.k.a Veteran’s Day, in Las Vegas. 

Fogerty will be on hand to dedicate the “Proud Mary – John Fogerty Container Home” at Veterans Village, and he’ll then join local veterans for a screening of his concert film, “50 Year Trip: Live at Red Rocks.” 

The rocker, whose November residency at Wynn’s Encore Theater kicks off November 6th, noted he wanted to “keep with the Woodstock spirit of peace, music and giving” alive by donating his fee to the “important and worthwhile endeavor.”
