OK PERFORMANCE

Having seen Mellancamp before, I knew what I was in for. The 20 Minute Into movie had Graffiti on the screen (Not sure if it was intentional or not, but it was distracting.) The band was solid, but John Mellancamp's vocal range has seen better days. Noticeably absent from the Setlist were ROCK in The USA, Hand To Hold On To and the classic Hurts so good. Most of the attendees were over 50 and it felt a bit like going to your high school reunion to play listen to some John Mellancamp's songs around a campfire. Mellancamp is entertaining but his acoustic Sing along of Jack and Diane was lame and his banter with the Ottawa audience was a bit weak. Light show was poor, but the Sound in the arena was acceptably good.

GREAT SHOW IN SOUTH BEND INDIANA

For any doubters out there at age 67 John Mellencamp has still got it. The show was fantastic! He rocked it with old favorites, new songs and some ballads. Audience sang along, people danced in the aisle. Always a great time when you see John Mellencamp!

MELLENCAMP @ BALTIMORE

Music was good. Venue and mix acoustics left something to be desired. 25 min biopic was a waste of time.

GREAT SHOW AT A GREAT VENUE

Overall great show. A mixture of old and new. Only negative was no encore. Don’t bands do that anymore? PPAC is always awesome to see an event, there are no bad seats. I would definitely see Mellencamp again.

MELLENCAMP IN CHARLOTTE

I have loved John Mellencamp since I was a teenager and still love his music. At 68 it’s impressive that he is still touring. With that being said, it will be the last time I spend mo eh to see him. Why? Let me put it this way....one week before seeing Mellencamp, I went to see Eric Church....there is a huge difference in the feeling I got between the two shows. Eric Church looks as if he is having fun performing and interacts with fans and is just down right enjoyable to watch. Mellencamp? Not so much. To me, it seems as if it’s a job, Yes I k ownit really is his job and that’s fine but I just didn’t like the feeling I got. We were in the 6th row somI was able to watch him closely. I’m glad he didn’t discuss politics as he and I are on different ends of the spectrum in that regard. I didnt appreciate that after his song about injustice, he kneeled. It’s his prerogative and I get it, Injust didn’t appreciate it. Do I love his music? Absolutely! Good show not a great show.

KALAMAZOO MILLER AUDIITORM

It was an awesome show (although I could have done without the 20 minute film before the actual show). Seen him twice before the first time being at Wings Stadium in 1986 and then DTE in Detroit like 20 years ago, The sound at Miller is audio perfect, great mix of new material, old tunes and some stories. He told this great story about his grandma that was funny, touching and I think the tune was named "Even the longest days are the shortest days" one of the best tunes he's ever done. Looking at some previous set lists think got a few more oldies than some other locations. For a guy that had 3 heart attacks in the past he's got an amazing amount of energy as does the band, If you get the chance see him it's well worth your time and money
