Stoked to see Mellencamp coming back to Norfolk!  Took my kids to the ballpark tour and they became instant fans!  Can't wait to get tickets!

Is John aware his set list should cover at least 90 mins and roughly 20 songs? The premium packages (double the price in the past) for real fans to sit close is disappointing considering years ago when being in the fan club got you close for no extra money (and backstage passes to boot). Honest Working Fans would like to see a full show at a fair price - and even the chance to see two! But lately the short sets and high prices for fan club seats have been disappointing.

Of course I don't expect a response of substance from the fan club since it's fallen on deaf ears before. This appears to be about squeezing max dollar rather than about the fans anymore. A shame.

Tony so excited to see John again here in Portland.  The last time he was out West, 2011, we had tickets to the Seattle, WA show.  We had been remodeling our home constantly for the 5 months prior, and were really looking forward to going to Seattle and relaxing for just a few days.  It was going to be our weekend.  We had even sprung and purchased those premium seats and got lucky enough to get a pair front row center seats!  It wasn't going to get any better.  Unfortunately the morning of the show just as we were getting ready to leave our home in Portland, we received a phone call that a death in the family was pending.  So instead of traveling North we went South.  So now what to do with the tickets?  With the help of another Mellenhead friend, we coordinated with the venue to gift them.  What I asked the person from the box office to do was to go to the absolutely worst seats in the house.  Seats so far up one needed oxygen to take a breath.  Find two people who looked worthy and to bring them up front into our seats.  The lady who helped us called back later and stated that she had done did just that.  As you recall, during that tour John showed a short film before the show.  She said when she went way up there, these people were intently watching the film, and that nobody else around them really was, that they were just talking and laughing.  She asked them if they would like an opportunity to move forward just a little, and they said yes.  She then described how excited that they became when they discovered that they were actually going to have FRONT ROW SEATS!  :-)  Jumping up and down and hugging each other. She said that the lady started crying at their good fortune.  She said that she checked back several times and that they were up having a great time; laughing, smiling, dancing.  It warmed my heart to know that despite the awful events of our day, that my husband and I had created some positive wonderful memories for somebody else.  I wonder how many people they have shared their story with, and I hope with it that they have shared the wonderful love that Mellenheads have for each other.  So now 4 years later, my opportunity to see a show finally here in Portland, OR!  I'm so excited to see John perform again.  I'm not so sure I can wait until next summer.  Thanks for coming to our little small town.....Kris Sell

Tony,
I am planning on attending multiple shows. However, I don't need all the extra stuff that comes with a Diamond Pkg just to ensure I get in the first 10 rows....is there an alternative to getting the "good seats" without all the extras?  Thanks!

I agree entirely with you. Spent over 100.00 each night for a ticket recently and received 75 minutes and 14 songs. seen him many times and felt he mailed the shows in.

I caution you not to make any assumptions about the 2015 tour based on the handfuls of casino shows from this Summer. Those are an entirely different thing with different requests/direction from the casinos than what goes on on a regular full Mellencamp headlining tour.

While John has not revealed how he will structure his show on the new tour I think it's reasonable to assume that since the venues are very similar to the 2010-12 No Better Than This Tour that the show will be setup somewhat similar and the show length (which ranged from 95 to 110 minutes) will be similar.

The ticket prices on the 2015 tour (including the Diamond package) are priced almost identically to the 2010-2012 tour. There are a limited number of Diamond package tickets available per show, they do not consume all of the best seats by any means. There will be tickets in the front rows in the Mellencamp.com presale (the fan club ended nearly 5 years ago) and also high quality tickets will be in the public on sale too.

Change is part of the passing of time. Sorry that things are not exactly as they were 15 years ago, but that was 15 years ago. Sharon and I work very hard to offer John's die hard fans as many good tickets as we can with several different options.

There will be good seats in the presales, there will be a lot of people trying to also pull them, so the diamond seats could be a fall back or something you do selectively if you are going to multiple shows. There is no way to buy the diamond package tickets without the items. If you end up with too many items consider donating them to our Farm Aid auction for next year!

There will be seats of all types/locations/prices available in all of the various pre-sales. Depending on the show/ticket system I think each outlet has their private allotment, but then other shows it will pull out of a common allotment.

Only half of the shows are sold through Ticketmaster, the others are all smaller ticket selling systems. We will be adding ticket links to the tour page over the next few days for all of the shows as the ticket sellers get their pages built.

Thanks for responding but I don't buy that it's the casinos fault for a short show. I've seen other shows in Windsor that were 90 minutes easily. I hope the show is like the No Better Than This tour as far as length.  My point was not about anything being the same as 15 years ago but rather that double charging for a ticket and soundcheck access to get close to the stage is gouging the real fans - something that didn't occur years ago.  It's too bad a fan club doesn't exist if it means real benefits for real fans - not pay double and we'll throw ya a bone.

The presale lasts through Thursday night once it begins next Tuesday. The password will be available the entire length of the presale on the TOUR page once you are logged in. The question as to if there will be ticket left in the presale is the unknown. But if we run out you might be able to try one of the other presales or try the public onsale.

We are not expected any more shows to be added to the 80 that are announced.

Mellencamp.com's technology is powered by BubbleUp which is located in The Woodlands TX. However I am located in Southern Indiana and Sharon is located on the east coast

The Citi Card presale is entirely separate from our presale and often will be pulling from a separate set of tickets. I am not entirely sure how you get access to that presale.

Head over to the TOUR page of Mellencamp.com. All of the on sale dates/times are listed there on the big grid. Generally the presales start this coming Tuesday at 10am local and the public tickets go on sale Friday at 10am local.

If you need/want ticket prices for a show, on the tour page, click the blue icon on far right side of the row for any show for all of the details.

Discussed with the promoter, AEG Live.

Tuesday is the CITI presale, not Mellencamp.com. Their ticket system can only program one promotion at a time.
 
The Citi ends 9am Thursday, and our pre-sale will start 11am Thursday

If you buy Diamonds, will you know the exact section/row/seat you are buying prior to purchase, or will you find out later? Many presales don't tell you your seats until after the money is spent, which is not good for the hardcore fan who wants to be in front row. Thanks.

Why are all shows going on sale at the same time?  It seems like in the past they were at least staggered a bit (both in time and days).  Just curious!  Thank you!

What is the ticket vendor for the Arnoff Center in Cincinnati? Where will the link take me when I click on it after getting the password? I want to already logged in and payment info updated before attempting presale tickets. It's not listed on Ticketmaster.

The links are already up on the TOUR page for Cincy, it's the venues ticket system. 50% of the shows this tour are not ticketmaster shows.

You could try to locate another show they have on sale and practice/register by going through the process of purchasing tickets to anther show.

That is the choice of AEG Live (the entire tour promoter).

If you buy Diamonds, will you know the exact section/row/seat you are buying prior to purchase, or will you find out later? Many presales don't tell you your seats until after the money is spent, which is not good for the hardcore fan who wants to be in front row. Thanks. 

Generally, yes. You will get to see the exact seat location for the diamond tickets at almost every show with perhaps a few exceptions (hearing Carnegie hall).

Hi everyone,  The Diamond Package says non transferable.....Does that mean the ticket also if one of us could not make it  Life is life and things happen and I sure would hate to put that kind of money out and one of us could not go and we could not give the ticket to one of our kids or a friend....thank you for any help

If your ticket seller lets you print or have your Diamond tickets delivered by mail (and my understanding is most will, that's different than our past ticket offerings), then there won't be many ways to stop you from giving them to someone else.

However your items will be shipped to you since you were the buyers.

I have to agree.  The codes were promised at 9:50 and constant continual minute by minute refreshing and only at exactly 10:00 did the codes start to flow down the list.  AT least my choice of venue used the same code as the first two or three. So we're in.  Better seats than available through the citipass promo which would be a section further back. What's to complain about 2nd row other than it IS 2nd row (lol)

I can attest that you do know your seats before you buy.  I had tickets picked form the citipass code but those did not offer the diamond package but with the community code I was able to add the proper tics to my cart, release the others and check out.  Cleveland. One of the few venues where the local site sells their own without giving ticketmaster a cut.

The server buckled under the pressure of all of the traffic. I am sure you noticed the site slowed down. Because of those issues the passwords did not turn on automatically. Because the traffic was so high we couldn't even turn the shows on manually very quickly.

What a disappointment! I logged in exactly at 10 am Phoenix time and all tickets were already gone. How does that even happen?

Please keep trying for tickets, all tickets are NOT sold out for the presale.

Due to the number of people requesting tickets, all tickets in the pre-sale might have been allocated into shopping carts and you might be getting a message saying no tickets are available.

However, we have learned from past experience, many of those people are trying for tickets only looking for the front row. If they don't get that they will not buy the tickets they were able to pull up.

Those tickets they don't buy will then return to being available after 7 to 20 minutes and then everyone will have a fresh shot at them.

Thus we recommend you keep trying for tickets, and don't get overly concerned by the "no tickets currently available message", unless tickets have been on sale for at least an hour.

FYI the other main presale password is SPOKEN if you want to try that for the AEG/Radio/Local pre-sale.

Yes, the Portland presale was botched.  Click not the ADA link above to switch to non-ADA seats.  Orch C row G off to the side was best I found.  Diamond tickets do not tell you exact seat location.  For $500/pair I want to know exactly what I'm buying.  I did  not purchase for this reason.  Not a great presale.

Ticketmaster has generally worked very well and been very reliable today. Just about half of the 80 shows were on Ticketmaster and you will barely find a message on the forum today about ticketmaster shows.

Thanks Tony, Sharon, et all.  I got 2 tickets for each of 3 shows- LA, Phoenix, & Denver.  Got 4th row for the LA show, 1st row for the Phx show (both of those shows got the diamond package), and got like 20th row for Denver (fanclub presale seats).  I may have been able to stay at it and get better Denver seats but I knew I was going for more expensive/better ones for the other two shows.  I plan on taking my 6 year old to the Phx show and my 5 year old to the LA show- better tickets came up by pulling 2 tickets rather than 3.  Plus, not sure if I could control both of them at the same show :)

There is a chance I may try and see one of the Nor Cal shows but will wait to see if I can make it to them before I buy tickets.

A lot going on for the Mellencamp.com team today with close to 80 shows going onsale all on the same day.

Woohoo...got 4 tickets in row H Orch left for the Atlanta show at the Fox.
This is the date I proposed to my wife (come concert day) 5 years ago so it will be a nice night!
I think last time I saw John was back with Fogerty in Atlanta 7/24/05.  Wow..can't belive it's gonna be more than 10 years since!

Count Basie PRE SALE is sold out. Not the public tickets, they go on sale Friday at 10am.  You should be able to get seats!

Is John aware his set list should cover at least 90 mins and roughly 20 songs? The premium packages (double the price in the past) for real fans to sit close is disappointing considering years ago when being in the fan club got you close for no extra money (and backstage passes to boot). Honest Working Fans would like to see a full show at a fair price - and even the chance to see two! But lately the short sets and high prices for fan club seats have been disappointing.

Of course I don't expect a response of substance from the fan club since it's fallen on deaf ears before. This appears to be about squeezing max dollar rather than about the fans anymore. A shame.

I caution you not to make any assumptions about the 2015 tour based on the handfuls of casino shows from this Summer. Those are an entirely different thing with different requests/direction from the casinos than what goes on on a regular full Mellencamp headlining tour.

While John has not revealed how he will structure his show on the new tour I think it's reasonable to assume that since the venues are very similar to the 2010-12 No Better Than This Tour that the show will be setup somewhat similar and the show length (which ranged from 95 to 110 minutes) will be similar.

The ticket prices on the 2015 tour (including the Diamond package) are priced almost identically to the 2010-2012 tour. There are a limited number of Diamond package tickets available per show, they do not consume all of the best seats by any means. There will be tickets in the front rows in the Mellencamp.com presale (the fan club ended nearly 5 years ago) and also high quality tickets will be in the public on sale too.

Change is part of the passing of time. Sorry that things are not exactly as they were 15 years ago, but that was 15 years ago. Sharon and I work very hard to offer John's die hard fans as many good tickets as we can with several different options.


Did anyone get close to the front row without buying the "Diamond" package?  I bought tix in 4 cities and saw no row 1-3's for standard pricing.


Title: Re: 2015 Plain Spoken Tour Questions & Answers
Post by: mellenfan on September 17, 2014, 06:22:21 pm
Just bought Diamond seats for 2! This will be the first time I've seen John since 1992 and I cannot wait.  Will there be any type of meet and greet for Diamond package holders?

u mean a poster, fake "VIP" laminate and "special gift" isn't enough for twice the ticket price?  At least there was the soundcheck last time around.

Thank you Fan Club... Tony Sharon and all you Mellenheads......

May I please remind all...Things change everyday... and things will continue to always change.  It's life.  If only we could turn back time.  I got great Orchestra Tickets at the Northrop Minneapolis at 10:04 a.m. for his 2/15/14 show.  I studied and then followed the directions that Tony posted and I had absolutely no problem getting the tickets that I so wanted.  I paid the exact amount per VIP ticket that I did in 2011 for at the State Theater in Minneapolis.  AND...I will continue to pay the price because I want to be that close to the stage.  It is so worth it.  May we just take a deep breath and count all the blessings?  We got a Presale....John is Touring....80 times!....We got a new album coming out in less than a week....He is alive and so are we.... What's with some of the negativity?  I noticed it is from mostly the people who are new on this site.  If they only knew.... We/Me are more disappointed than they are... No more Minutes to Memories nor Club Cherry Bomb Fan Clubs but we roll with the times.  We should be the ones complaining but we are not.  We are grateful.  Thanks JM for this tour and songwriting and singing!  My only wish... We need a female vocal in your band so bad!  Mirium has stated many times... She is not a singer.  She is the best violinist ever tho!

That's great that you can afford $250 per ticket to sit close.  I - like you - have been around for the Minutes to Memories Days when fans paid a membership and in return got first chance at seats close to the stage for the regular ticket price.  Today's doubled price for close seats to anyone that registers on a website is nothing short of scalping tickets.

First of all, a quick thank you to the staff at the Overture Center for quickly correcting on sale problem and to the staff at Mellencamp for their concern and working on the problem. I'm one of those who is happy to get a decent seat, don't need to be up close on the floor and having to stand for most of the show or stuck behind a taller person and doing the head bob to see, going "Is he on stage yet?". I ended up with 3 shows, a box in Chicago, 2nd row balcony in Rockford, and front row 2nd level in Madison. This way I can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. I saw earlier postings about fans and not wanting to sit next to them. I went to 3 different shows this year and had to deal with people who just didn't care or were plain rude. Went to Warren Haynes - Music of Garcia and had 2 ladies who talked and texted through the entire first set. I found another seat and moved between sets. Saw CSN and had people in and out of seats all night and person next to me didn't know the band members. Finally saw Tony Bennett and in the middle of "San Francisco" lady screamed out to "sing it", his reply wasn't so nice. Hopefully everybody going is going for the show and not just to be there. Done with my rant and getting off the soap box now.

I'm from Sweden so I don't know if I'm going to see him this year. If that's the case maybe someone is willing to buy an extra and send it to me? I'd pay through paypal.

Yay!  I'll have to find a special frame for it.  Since I have quite few tour posters from various artists, I'll have to figure out where to put the JM.  He deserves to be among the best of the best.

I do not have one, so I can't tell you the size, but they have shipped out for all of the Jan/Feb shows and will ship out this week/early next week for all of the March shows, so some folks should be able to reply.

The poster is an original new Mellencamp painting, so new I don't even have a title for it. It was something John wanted to use for this.

The Diamond Package/VIP items typically arrive about a week before the show.

If you get close to your show and your items have not arrived please email JohnMellencampVIP@aeglive.com for an update. That is answered by AEG Live who is the tour promoter and vender for the Diamond Ticket Packages.

The items are not required to pick up your tickets/attend the show.

If there are any issues please keep us in the loop at help@mellencamp.com

We can only go on what John recently said on stage and in interview, he told crew see you in Australia early next year. That's about all we know at this point.

There are currently no US shows planned at the moment for 2016. Anything is possible as the 2015 tour went great, John was very happy and greatly enjoyed all of the shows/touring. But we are not currently expecting US 2016 touring.

Non pro cameras were allowed at the shows, but there was an announcement discouraging their use so not to distract the other concert goers. It talked about being a good citizen.

That's how the show should have been coded into the ticket systems, row 11 doesn't always mean it's the 11th row from the start of that section, although certainly usually it does.

If you want to forward your order confirmation to help@mellencamp.com and note your experience we can pass it on to the Dainty Group's ticket people, not sure there would be anything they can do other than to fact find if there is a problem.

John does not do any kind of a formal meet and greet at his shows. But if you run into him outside the concert don't be afraid and say hi.

We do not know how much John will change up the setlist for the new leg, but it's a continuation of the Plain Spoken so it likely it will stay quite similar. John's oldest song performed at those shows was Jack & Diane.

Hi,

I'm new to the forum, but I've been along time fan back to the 70s!

We are looking forward to getting a diamond package for the Rochester, NY show and I was wondering if there is any type of meet & greet? If so how do you get put in for a chance at this.

Excited and looking forward to the show!!

Thanks in advance,

Jim

We are sorry to report that at this time John is not holding any formal meet & greets at his shows. 

He doesn't mind meeting fans out in the real world for a quick hello and hand shake by any means, so if you happen to run into him around town don't be afraid to say hello.

Sometimes if you are lucky you can catch him as he exits the venues after a show.

Below is our our presale normally works. We do not email out presale passwords.

Rochester is a bit of an exception as their ticket system builds the password into the ticket link, so we will add the link to the tour grid just a few minutes before the presale, it will be the link listed in the pre-sale field/column.

Here are the instructions after you have already registered for the website and found the TOUR page.

 Step 3 - Return to Mellencamp.com the morning of your show's pre-sale and log into the website.

 Step 4 - On the TOUR page, approximately 10 minutes before the pre-sale begins, we will post a pre-sale ticket password ONLY for logged in members. You MUST REFRESH the TOUR page in your browser to see the password, it will appear in the column next to whichever show you choose.

 Step 5 - Click the link to go to the online ticket seller and enter the password where required to gain access to the pre-sale and then complete your purchase.

The Stranahan Theater show in Toledo (10/21/16) shows the presale is 4/27/16 at 10A. However, Stranahan's ticket seller is showing the presale begins 4/28/16. Does anyone know which date is correct?

We think the presale box will appear there at the right time, the tour promoter is checking on that.
