I never received an e-mail about the 7/4 CT pre-sale...  Tour page says the pre-sale is over & when I go to the Mohegan Sun Arena site the concert isn't listed at all.  Is the pre-sale really over?  :(

Have the presale tickets for Mohegan Sun, CT gone on sale yet? I see the public ones are on 3/28? Confused?? If not when are they? Mohegan doesn't list the concert at all.

What's the scoop on the premium packages for the summer 2014 tour?

Will there be premium packages available for the two shows in Oklahoma?  (June 20 and 21)

Thanks!

What type of tour is this going to be?  I'm going to go to the show in Niagara Falls either way, but I know certain friends will want to go to a "greatest hits" tour while others will want to go to the type of tour that "No Better Than This" was?

John has not revealed his plan for this tour so we have no real guesses to offer. It's a full band tour, it will surely feature a number of hits as well as some of his more recent material.

No premium packages were possible for the 2 OK shows, nor the Casino Rama shows. We may offer them at a few of the other casino shows, but that is not locked down yet.

We do not have on sale dates for Niagara, Uncasville, Windsor, Minot, nor do we know when the presale will be for Borgata. So we just have the show date listed on our TOUR page for now so people can see there is a presale coming.

Watch the TOUR page for updated dates/times for the presales and public onsales.

Ticketmaster STINKS!

I got online and into the presale for the Winstar show on June 21st right at 10 am using the mellencamp.com presale password (thanks) and it took me to a place to see available seats on a map.

I was able to choose 3 seats in section VIP, row AA, seats, seats 16-18.  After clicking on those seats, it showed that I had those seats selected/reserved and all I had to do was hit "Buy Tickets" to check out.  I clicked on "buy tickets" and nothing happened, no progress bar or indication it was processing.  I didn't want to lose those seats, so I waited.  I moved my cursor to make sure the screen was still active, and other things would change as I hovered my cursor over themů.but the "buy tickets" button wouldn't respond.

After about 10 minutes of no activity, I started to panic so I backed out and used the "find seats for me" approach, and after a bunch of refreshes I finally was able to buy much worse seats.  The good news is that I'm in the house, the bad news is I don't have the greatest seats.

I called TM's customer service line, and they confirmed that once I selected those seats I should have been able to buy them, but they really didn't seem to care.  I know this has nothing to do with mellencamp.com, but it sure is frustrating that Ticketmaster is so inept.

In case any of you are interested, I have attached a screenshot of what I was seeing.

It's a shame that Ticketmaster can screw up a great thing provided by mellencamp.com.

We hope to offer a presale for Niagara but the public on sale date has not yet been set. Once that is we will try to schedule a pre sale.

We heard from the Windsor promoter today, the venue has not yet picked an on sale date. So until that happens we can't set up our pre-sale. It won't be this week.
Thanks

I had some trouble with the Atlantic City premium ticket sale getting past the "captcha" screen on my laptop, but the wife got through at about 10:20 no problem  (I was using IE should've been using Chrome I guess)

anyway the best we could get was section 400 row 4, and later coming up was section 200 row 3 . The middle best section is section 300, did anyone get seats there?  I am wondering if the Borgata is holding them for gifts to high roller gamblers or such, which would be very disappointing for 2 reasons: 1) I am not sitting there 2) John could have people in the front row who don't really care to be there, they are just there because the casino gave them the tickets.

Otherwise I am psyched, although it being a holiday weekend in Atlantic City the cost of going to this show is going to be at least 5 time the premium ticket price....oh well...I could stay home right?
If anyone had any success in getting section 300 let me know.....

We had PAT tickets in section 200, 300 and 400, mostly in the 300 as I recall. Have a great time at the show!

Not in 2014, but he will be in the area in 2015.

If you don't purchase a PAT for the shows that are offering them, are you still able to get seats within the first 5 rows?  Or are those only available through the PAT?


Title: Re: John Mellencamp 2014 Summer Tour Ticket and Tour Questions
Post by: mtotch123 on April 08, 2014, 07:45:38 am
That is a good question, because I see that PAT are running over $300???!!!  Is that the average price?? I was waiting for Windsor, so I'm if prices are going to be similar.  I seriously cannot afford THAT!!!  I was estimating $200....and that was going to stretch my budget.... :(

There have been front 5 row tickets available at the shows with PAT packages so far. We expect that to be the case for Windsor, but we have not yet seen the seat locations. We are offering a tiny number of PAT packages so it's not taking very many seats.

We are projecting Windsor to be $250 each for the PAT packages. The PAT price is based on the face price, so some shows have had a higher price than others.

We have been told tentatively there will be at least 2 price levels in the ballpark for $120 and $95, there could be a lower price level, they haven't filled us in on that.

While the 2015 isn't set, we are expecting it for sure to visit most of the biggest markets in the country, that would include Atlanta and I believe most of John's tours have swung through that market.

That is an error. Tickets go on sale to public next Saturday May 3, presale is Wednesday and Premium Access Tickets are also Wednesday. All of that info is up on Mellencamp.com now and has been for a week or two.

So ya......

Can anyone tell me why I can't 'legally' purchase a ticket for a decent seat on Ticketmaster, but when I go on Stub Hub I can get a GREAT seat for twice/three times the price?

Seriously.....can't get a ticket in rows 1-3 on Ticketmaster, but could get 50 of them on Stub Hub!!!!

This is so depressing...............

The whole concert scene has turned into a big business for someone....and it's not the artists!

Hello everyone!
Me and my dad will be attending the Atlantic City show on july 6th, our first time watching John live. So I'd like to ask some questions to you guys who have seen him a couple of times, like, how many songs does he usually play? Which songs are we "guaranteed" to hear?

Just saw the show in Thackerville, OK... very disapointed... The Friday night show was only 45 min, no encore...the Saturday night show was an hour but still no encore.  If the rest of the tour is anything like the first two shows, don't waste your money.  I've seen John four times, starting with the Scarecrow tour in '84, but this was my last. 

Please post your questions and any issues you have with the 2014 Summer Tour in this thread!


Title: Re: John Mellencamp 2014 Summer Tour Ticket and Tour Questions
Post by: neoncactus on June 23, 2014, 08:42:36 pm
I was at Friday's Thackerville show.  He played an hour and fifteen minutes.  But still disappointing.  The music was great, just too short and abrupt ending with no encore.  It was not worth the money we paid to see him.  
UPDATE:  Got an email from the manager at Winstar.  She said John was contracted to play between 75 and 90 minutes and played 82 (I think they are counting walking on and off stage as part of that time personally).  So this may be his standard performance time on this tour.

Hey,
I'm sure this a total and complete long shot but I'm all about giving it the old college try.  Not sure who to talk to or who to write to, but hopefully this can get into the right hands.

I've been a fan of John COUGAR (to me!) since I was a kid when my parents would play John Cougar, Fleetwood Mac, the Knack on 45..only My Sherona...lol...and of course Zeppelin and the other greats...I have great memories of being a kid listening to records with them.  I remember sitting down with my parents in the early 80s watching Farm Aid because we're from North Dakota and they had to explain the whole schpiel to me about farms, and food and crops being people's livelihoods AND our way to eat...that totally stuck with me.  I sorda saw him as like a hero to the people in small states.  (Small in population/not small in size or impact)...lol...Anyway, this has been a super shitty year for our family.  My sister took her life on Valentines Day of this year...she was 35.  I've been raising her 3 kids since her death.  It's of course been hard on me, but I think more hard on my dad.  He found out he had bladder cancer last fall and has been battling that since before Christmas.  They finally took his bladder completely here about a month ago and they said he's cancer free now.  That's a huge blessing but he's still feeling the hurt of the "stoma"...aka colostomy bag type deal for urine and feels like it's starting to control HIM instead of HIM being in control of IT.  I really feel like he needs something big to make him feel like life is worth living again.  He's finally started seeing a therapist and is started to find little bits of joy in life again..he will be 58 this year in August and I'd love it if somehow we could get tickets and a meet and greet donated to us as a birthday present since John will be in Minot, ND for the state fair in July.  I hate to sound like a beggar but I've had to learn the last few months that you'll never know who wants to help if you don't ask...so I'm asking.  This is definitely not some random wackadoodle ploy or scam or whatever...my name is Erica Copeland and I am on Facebook, from Minot ND....my sister's name was Lisa Sheehan and her obit is with Thompson Larson Funeral Home in Minot.  Anyway, I'm sure I will feel stupid for doing this later and putting all that extra info on here but hey, you never know the skepticism of people OR the generousity of them.  Basically, any chance worth taking is ALWAYS worth taking regardless of the outcome!!  Thanks for listening. 
Erica Copeland

Post by: Smalltownboy on July 10, 2014, 08:22:28 pm
I would say possibly some time next year.  The new album is due this fall and the tour to promote it will likely start after it is released.  John and band will be touring from then on and throughout 2015.  I recall reading that it'll be a big North America tour.  Keep your finger crossed that he comes to your town and mine.
