4  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: John Mellencamp Plain Spoken 2016 Australia Tour Dates Cancelled on: March 08, 2016, 11:21:17 pm
Is it unfortunate that the Aussie tour was canceled? Absolutely. However, given the fact that John has lost his brother, I think the crass attitude around here is rather distasteful. John did not screw any of you over. Interesting how so many of you think so highly of yourselves. For the canceled events, I understand your money is being refunded. We don't know the exact reason for the tour being canceled, but regardless of the reason or reasons, it would be great if we could stop dogging John. We are his fans after all aren't we? Instead of getting uptight, think about John and his family and pray for them or keep them in your thoughts. It's never easy to lose a family member. John's music has helped many of us through our ups and downs, joys and sorrows, the least some of you could do is have a little compassion.

I hear you. Previously unreleased songs made available are really great collector's items. They're extra special. Previously released songs don't have that "new" excitement as unreleased ones do, but at the same time, as a collector there is something neat about getting that RSD item regardless....well if you can find it!

Great photo!  Grin I can't wait to see John again at the end of May. Glad to hear he looked happy.
Can you believe the audience and the issues they're having with "Jack and Diane". At his Chicago Theatre show (2nd night), after the first verse, the audience started the chorus. Seems to be happening everywhere!

I personally LOVE the fact that John participates and really believes in Record Store Day. He is so right about how the retail experience is as important as the music. Record stores are special places and there aren't many anymore. He's right, music truly is celebrated at record stores, resale shops are some of the best places to find music being celebrated because of the extensive vinyl selections as well as CDs and the passionate people who work there. It's evident that they love music and most people working at those stores are rather knowledgeable too.

One of his best songs. It puts a lot into perspective.

Wow, audiences everywhere seem to be having trouble with acoustic "Jack and Diane" . In Chicago this year, the majority of the audience broke into the chorus too soon as well and he had to stop and correct them. I couldn't believe it. The people around me were confused, not realizing they had gotten it wrong.  Roll Eyes

I agree with you Lisa. Seems as though he's in denial about the dangers, which unfortunately, a lot of people are. The idea is, if it hasn't hurt me yet, it won't. No, it isn't a big accomplishment and certainly not one that I would be proud of but I think it goes back to trying to make light of something. When we know something is bad, but do it anyway, if we make light of it, it "automatically" becomes "better". It is very upsetting.

I completely get where you're coming from and you certainly have the right to feel this way. My condolences about your mother.

I tried to hunt down a print from a store in IL, but no place I went to had one. Not sure if they were out or if they never had any to begin with.  Cry

Nice to "meet" you Jenny. Glad to hear you finally got to see John and take your son to his first ever concert. His concert is AMAZING and worth every penny. So happy to know you both had a great time. John is one of the best and his music only continues to get better.  Smiley
13  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Articles / Re: New Book - "Mellencamp: American Troubadour" on: March 30, 2015, 10:38:41 am
Just by reading this small piece of the book, I can already tell I will love it. This is evidently written by a fan who not only "gets it", but can also see through and feel. I can only imagine the time and effort put into this, and I look forward to enjoying it. I saw the book in a store recently and thumbed through the bibliography, which was extremely impressive.

David, Thank you for your time and dedication to the man and his music!

Great that the neutral 4 raved about Mellencamp. I like both artists but if I had to pick between the two, it has to be John. I relate to his work much more. Saw his show on this tour and it was simply AMAZING. Bought tickets to 2 more shows this tour, couldn't pass up the opportunity.  Smiley

John puts on an amazing show. Seeing him 2 more times this tour!!!
