You can take your plaid shirt off, because John Fogerty has canceled his appearance in Tampa Bay this Saturday.

The Creedence Clearwater Revival icon was set to co-headline a show with “American Idol” runner-up Lauren Alaina at Tampa’s Yuengling Center—located in the heart of USF Bull Run Drive. And on Tuesday, Nov. 23, over in Orlando, a co-headlining set with Cheap Trick—featuring Safety Harbor resident Robin Zander, was set to take place at the Amway Center. Neither venue has made a statement on the matter as of yet.

At the time of this writing, the second of this trio of what could have been epic affairs is still happening, which will feature ol’ Fogey, and the current iteration of Foreigner jamming at Estero’s Hertz Arena.

As for us less fortunate sons of Tampa and Orlando, refunds are available at point of purchase only, with Ticketmaster promising refunds in the coming days.
