Creedence Clearwater Revisited Will Perform As Scheduled
Creedence Clearwater Revisited fans who are worried that Dakota Access Pipeline protesters could jeopardize Saturday night's show can breathe a sigh of relief. The show will go on.
In a press release issued in the late afternoon on Thursday, the Prairie Knights Casino announced that the Creedence Clearwater Revisited show on Saturday night will go on as planned.
Traveling to the casino in Fort Yates has become a bit more of a hassle in recent days after protesters forced the shutdown of Highway 1806 south of Mandan.
The intention of protesters was not to shut down the highway as Standing Sioux Tribe Chairman Dave Archambault told reporters on Thursday, "I understand the reason the highway patrol is doing this, but I don't think it is necessary, it is not fair to those who are trying to get to the casino. I hope the state recognizes the people coming are not in any danger."
In the press release issued by the casino, it said, "Iron Eyes also said he understands the inconvenience this detour creates for guests, but believes it will be forgotten once the band launches into their extensive playlist of hits from the 1960s and 1970s."
Patrons will need to take Highway 6 and then take Highway 24 across back to Highway 1806.
The Creedence Clearwater Revisited show is Saturday night at 7:30pm.
