see Outdoor Stage on The Playhouse Ball Field | The Ridgefield PlayhouseI wasn't aware of it but checked their tour agenda and I don't see it there. They did play in New Haven already earlier in the month.
Is there a reason you wouldn't see both? I've never seen either, and I'd personally probably think Connick's show would be highly entertaining, even if standards aren't your thing. I'm a fan of some CCR stuff, not so much his solo tunes, but his backing band (feat. Kenny Aranoff, Bob Malone) indicates no slouch performance either.Hall & Oates next Thursday. Wife asked me today if I want to go see Harry Connick Jr. on the 14th and/or John Fogetry on Aug 20th. Of the two, certainly prefer Fogerty's catalog of material, and he would check a box of legends I have not seen. Lots of good tickets for both still available.

last friday night. gday, wheezer, fall out boy? it was both mega, and hella. the storms magically went around Hershey, and a good time was had by all.hella mega, Hershey
little big town, Bridgeport.
Nice pic, looks like you had good seats. Harry is a great musician.So Harry Connick Jr. on Saturday at Leader Bank Pavilion. As always a tremendous venue, no bad seats, sea breezes off the water. Harry was superb, I knew his vocals made him the best modern era crooner, but I confess I wasn't aware of just how talented he is as a jazz piano player. Really kind of blends Sinatra style standards with New Orleans jazz. Band was terrific.

Awesome! I'll see him on Friday and can't wait for it. Any openers? (hope not)So, a write up on John Fogerty, last Friday night in Boston. Simply fantastic. Voice in great form. He came out with hit after hit CCR tunes, then launched into some covers before going back to CCR. Loads of delay/feedback on the guitars for a very 60's sound. Centerfield and The Old Man is Down the Road were the two 80s songs and he used a Louisville Slugger guitar that looks like bat. His two sons and daughter are in the band. The setlist is just epic. John Fogerty Concert Setlist at Leader Bank Pavilion, Boston on August 20, 2021 | setlist.fm Notable tunes included an acoustic cover of Bill Withers' Lean on Me with just his sons and daughter, in honor of nurses/front line folks. He brought some nurses on stage. Next wash Heard it through the Grapevine, similar to the CCR extended 1970 version with solos from every instrument. They even snuck in Van Halen, Eruption, where I will now note that I expected the other guitar player (turns out is John's son) to play the solos, since John is 76. Nope. He played all the solos, including impressive stuff on Susie Q and did engage in some dueling solo action with his son. He brought out his original guitar (including Woodstock) for Susie Q, It was a blast.
