I hope he keeps mixing up the setlist, even 2 - 3 songs at a time! Cool

I went to 4 shows and was thrilled to get to hear 3 different songs in that spot!  I loved Thinking About You, but it sure was awesome to hear Human Wheels and What If I Came Knocking!  If I were going to more shows I would certainly enjoy the surprise of hearing a different song in that spot!  I don't think I'd want him changing too much else, tho!! 

 Human wheels is an amazing song , also in my top 10 !!  Heard him play it a few years back & it was great .

We New Englanders are hearty souls, much like folks from the Heartland!  Most recent forecast is for the storm to be over by Thursday morning.  Just got off the phone with Lowell Auditorium.  They said they never cancel, it will just be an issue of the trucks full of precious instruments and equipment.  (Would not want THAT insurance bill)  so for those of us driving from Maine, we'll just add some extra time onto the 4 hours. No doubt cranking up the JM all the way there.   As for the trucks, quick, someone tell them to leave NOW! Travel safe everyone. 
I am going crazy...I also NEED this show! Now as far as "they never cancel" not true. I had tickets two years ago for the Providence, RI show and we got pounded with a snow storm and they canceled. So this is why I am going crazy! Shocked Drive safe everyone!

 I think what they Meant is the Lowell auditorium has never cancelled a show due to weather themselves , they keep the venue open as long as the Artist makes it .

Tim McGraw @ $85 is a great example of how a show can cost a reasonable ammount , a lot of "Rockers" could take some lessons from country artists who bend over backwards for the fans , Brad paisleys last tour topped at $59 when he came through , taylor swift at $79  .... These are also artists that allthough most are not selling albums ( artists blame internet downloading) Country sells in the Millions , i really think it has to do with how they treat their fans ....... Bruce springsteens last tour topped out at $90 , Billy joel keeps it under $100 a seat ...... I just bought Todd rundgren this morning for boston , he's playing a 2,000 seat "intimate theatre" playing 2 full albums through plus hits & i got tix 30 rows from the stage for $35 each , top tix were $95 , so he kept them under $100 ...... and as mentioned STYX just played the lowell , i went to that for $49 & tix topped out around $79 i believe ? If they can do it , so can any other touring act , they got paid , they made $$$  Chris botti who has become close to the top in Jazz players is in lowell , Tix are $44 - $54  .....Phil Vassar is playing there $27 - $57  , Tanni same thing , under $100 .
   So i do apologize , but i think it's a real kick in the face to be asking $255.00 / $130.00  for the great seats , sorry , that does not fly with me as a longtime fan , if evry other artist was doing this maybe ... but it's just not the case , and i'll stay home this time & also in the future , there are a lot of fans on other boards not happy with the way Prices have gone , sorry , i'm not gonna
max out my credit cards at $50-for 2 seats , i need to eat , pay car insurance , gas  etc. ..... coming form a guy who sings about america & how the country is treating them i find this kinda ironic and that's just my fellings  , I am a HUGE music fan & have well over 10,000 cd's + Vinyl caseetyes etc. I'll be sure to support those who Really do care about the fan's  & that's just my opinion ... I feel bad for those who have had to save up so much for 1 night out  , i can probably go see 6 other shows for that price ...

 Thanks for all that Info Johng !

Foo Fighters played a show at the Forum in LA, a basically defunct venue, at less than $35 a ticket. Garth Brooks did a tour about 5 years ago where tickets were under $50

 These are really great Examples & as mentioned by the oroginal poster of this thread STYX played this same venue just 2 months ago (i also went to that show) & all tix were under $100  , i got an amazing seat for $49  & i'm sure everyone got paid .
  KISS realised how bad their summer tour was going to be & dropped most tix for $24 last summer & all lawn seats bought by an adult you could bring 4 kids with you for free .
   But STYX is probably the best Example as they played the same venue .
 Even BB king plays this same venue & it runs half the price .
   
  and johns last tour through bost was just as Expensive topping out at $250 , I am just more Bummed that we will miss this tour due to pricing Unless some cheaper/Decent $50 tix pop up at some point .

 I am really glad somone brought this up , this tour is FAR too Expensive , of course even the last boston show was too much & that one topped out at $250a few years ago .
   My Girl & i were going to see the Lowell show , but just can not afford to do so when all decent seats are $255 & $128 + service  .... I am only able to work partime due to health & that's the way it's been for 10 years , My Girl worked for a company who did Govt. Contracting & got Laid off right before Xmas , But even before that when tix went on sale we decided we just can not afford it , even if i could i probably would not asking over $100 + service  is just TOO MUCH for a show , it really is , I respect the artists who have stepped up & kept prices under $99 a seat .
   We are really bummed to not be seeing this tour as i really love the new album  , but until ticket prices go down , we will no longer be seeing John live .
  I can't anwer if John sets prices , Usually a promoter will do that , but he DOES have the chance to put it in his contract that no tix will be priced beyond say "$99"  & he could get more involved to keep prices down for sure ............ It's a big bummer , But i'm not gonna starve to spend almosy $300 to see a show , right now that's a lot of $$$$ to a lot of people ..
11  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: Why has john never released a live album? on: January 25, 2011, 04:10:34 pm
 I live Blu-ray concert would just be amazing !!

 Maybe the current tour & they could alos put the Documentary as a bonus .
12  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: Tattoo on: January 25, 2011, 04:08:52 pm
 very cool , thanks for that info .
13  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: Autograph at Concert? on: January 25, 2011, 04:07:54 pm
 From what i have seen , the best time at a show is if the artist is done the show & they are near the front shaking hands with the crowd up front .

Can you snap a picture of whatever the promo pic was? Or can you describe it more? It was something physically in the best buy store?
At the Best Buy I went to today the promo poster was the same picture that's in the upper left hand corner of this website, or at least it was from that same photo shoot -- you know the one that was from Interview magazine right after "Freedom's Road" came out. It's nothing new, it's been seen before.

 I was in my local Best buy last night & same poster/Photo on the End-cap of the cd section , it's about 4 feet high & a few feet wide & then there is a new cd release rack next to it  above the poster it has the quote "Cd's under $10"
