They announced their summer plans last Feb. 26 and on Saturday night (May 26), John Fogerty and ZZ Top played the second night of their “Blues & Bayous” tour in Holmdel, NJ, following their opener the night prior in Atlantic City, NJ.

The May 26 concert at the PNC Bank Arts Center featured a 14-song set from ZZ Top including performances of “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Legs,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and a cover of Sam & Dave’s “I Thank You.” (See the complete setlist below.)

Fogerty‘s 24-song set was dominated by Creedence Clearwater Revival favorites including “Green River,” “Up Around the Bend” and “Fortunate Son,” and many from his sizable solo catalog (“Rock and Roll Girls,” “Centerfield”). His setlist also included a cover of “Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor), a 1979 hit for Robert Palmer.

Fogerty debuted a new song, “Holy Grail,” which he recorded with ZZ Top’s Billy F. Gibbons. (The song will be released by BMG on June 8. (See complete setlist below.)
