Grammy Award-winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer John Fogerty - lead singer of multi-million-selling blues-rock outfit Creedence Clearwater Revival - is to play this year's BluesFest.

The event returns to Dublin's 3Arena in October and Fogerty, performing his first headline show since 2008, will be joined on the October 26 bill by one of the top-selling acts of the 1970s, The Steve Miller Band.

Fogerty has penned a string of hits including Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Rocking All Over the World and Have You Ever Seen The Rain, and has one of the most distinctive voices in rock.

Leo Green, Director Of Live Events, Live Nation, says: "Of course it goes without saying that John Fogerty and Steve Miller Band are two acts that have been on our wish list for some time and we’re delighted to have confirmed exclusive shows with them for this year’s BluesFest."

Tickets for Bluesfest go on general sale on Monday March 12.
