5.0 star rating Cynthia from Ottawa, Ontario


It was the perfect combo of humour, politics and music. He told us hilarious but very touching stories when playing his new songs... he let us sing along to his old stuff and corrected us when we forgot a verse and went right into the chorus... and had a running gag throughout the whole concert about how Canadians should build a wall to keep the Americans out (and that it'd only need to be a few feet tall to confuse the USA nowadays).

5.0 star rating Ken from Los Angeles, California


Knock out performance by Mellancamp. His gritty take on our tumultuous times was bracing. Band was s-o-l-i-d. Electric violinist soared. The great Emmylou Harris was not in the best of form vocally but still a treat to heat.

5.0 star rating Chris McGee from Arlington, Texas


Carlene Carter still sounded solid as she opened the show. She even went out to the merchandise table after her set for pics and autographs. She would return several times throughout the night. Emmylou Harris can still sing, though her voice isn't quite as strong as it once was. John put on a great performance, with a backing band that was phenomenal. Of particular note was the fiddle player and the bass player. The fiddler definitely kept the energy of the crowd up for the whole show. The bass player was amazing as he switched between his 4 string, 6 string, and upright bass. This was an amazing concert, I was 5 rows from the stage and enjoyed every minute of it.

John Cougar Aced it, and his band was awesome. Loved ,loved, loved. My daughter who has a heart condition was on her feet the whole time. What a wonderful entertainer. Love ya John.!!

4.5 star rating Stew Mc from Seattle, Washington


Great show by a solid performer. Rarely do the performers of the 70'2/80's generation enough energy from the audience to have people literally standing almost the whole show. Mellencamp seemed to enjoy the show - despite some gent (idiot as he called him) trying to get him to sign a book in the middle of the show. Mellencamp pointed this out to the person in between songs and shook the persons hand as they both apologized. A few songs later Mellencamp signed the book and joked to the audience about it. Anyway, back to the show. Solid performance from Mellencamp and all band members - most notably a great fiddle player who gave it her all.

4.0 star rating Peter from Winnipeg, Manitoba


John sounded great still, good banter and fan interaction. Sang most of our faves. The backdrop could have used a bit of work and coming out for one song for the encore would have been a nice touch but overall very good.
