Hey MNorris149,

Check out YouTube for the concert in Indianapolis 12.11.87 where he sings "Check it Out" and you see JM doing splits there.  I know that's not the back flips you mention; but still a phenomenal performance of the song and display of his athletic ability back in the day!

Does anyone know where John filmed the video, "Just Another Day", was it Key West; and why he chose the people that he did for that video, what was their significance?

John's tribute to Tom Petty in the Indy Star 10.3.17, all i can say is, so eloquent, John!

"Tom Petty was the Edward Hopper of American songwriters," it begins. "He was a certain kind of bird that had no legs, so he could never land on this earth; he lived his whole life in the sky. And now he will spread his wings and sleep on the wind. His name is written in the stars. John Mellencamp."

You know Jgmanns81,

I'm old enough to have seen John's concerts; and i'd like to see what you mention in more than just a song or two on YouTube!  I'm sure there are plenty of people around my age who were old enough but work, economics, latter years fans, for whatever reason; they would love to watch and listen to the older music again!   This is not to say, JM if you read these, that the current music isn't as appreciated!  Any form of your muse recorded has been and continues to be uber awesome! Cheesy

I am going to repost this here from my post in "What's Next" and hope for a reply to this idea?  I would add to that Evansville, IN destination a possible revisit to Ravinia?

Hello John & Staff,

I wonder and forward a humble suggestion as I've had time to reflect on the SCAH tour where I attended in Illinois.  I know your SCAH tour was set up to appease the fans for the good ole favorites and set up attention for a few of the songs off the new album.  John if you tour even one more time, how would it be if the band and you play/perform some songs we don't know and some songs we do, only let the theme of the tour revolve around what we love about John Mellencamp and as the people are coming through the gates, use technology to tabulate the songs people miss hearing and would love to hear again live that are untypical of those played over the years or at FarmAid.  Let that be the hook that brings people to the last tour, "Yours and Mine" Tour?   Wink

Only God knows if it would be but no one is getting younger; and even though John, your band and YOU look as hot as ever, how many more tours are you really wanting to do or will do, 0?  Then how many tours would people still fill venues to see you in?  You have SO MANY albums of material that people don't typically hear unless going to their own collection or possibly YouTube, etc.  There are a s_ton of songs and every concert would be different; but your band and you did that for Live by Request in 2004 and calls never stopped but only a few got through.

It would be so awesomely wonderful to see something like that show you performed for Bloomington in 2004 performed across the country! Roll Eyes  Maybe a member or two of the old bands could even return to perform as a reunion performance even and if that were in Indiana, well I could get to that, being a fellow Hoosier!  What i would pay to see that live!

GOD bless you John, you are so loved!

Hey John & Staff,

You were awesome on Morning Joe and thank you John for telling it like has been, is now and probably always will be! 

I wonder if this year's Sad Clowns and Hillbillies tour told you anything about how loved you really are to all of the average, middle-class, uncounted, no true voice and forgotten by Uncle Sam, folk!

"You see through everything and nothin' seems worthwhile
And hypocrite used to be such a big word to you
And it don't seem to mean anything to you now
Just try to live each and every precious moment
Don't be discouraged by the future forget the past
That's old advise but it'll be good to you..

Between a laugh and a tear
And that's as good as it can get for us
And there ain't no reason to stop tryin'"

Most on what i've read say John plays for 90 minutes with Carlene Carter-Cash playing before him as the show opener.  taking into account she might play half a dozen songs ahead and a short pause between stage changes, betting the show lasts 2-2 1/2 hrs.
11  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: Mellencamp Newsletter: 2nd Leg of Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Tour Starts Friday! on: August 25, 2017, 08:09:54 am
I guess in absence of a response to my last post, the answer is no; the line up doesn't change.  To that i will say, enjoy the tour and make it work for you John.  I will more than enjoy the show regardless of the familiar line up.   Wink
12  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: Mellencamp Newsletter: 2nd Leg of Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Tour Starts Friday! on: August 16, 2017, 04:20:44 pm
I have been watching John's song set for the first leg of the tour. Ths song list is great but i am wondering is he going to change up that line up any through the rest of the tour or will he continue with the canned list I've seen he and the band have played at all his tour dates so far?

I've seen interviews where John says he hates the road life and figure this may be his last tour. i would really like to hear him play some of his more Latin fusion/Caribbean rhythm type tunes like Just Another Day, Key West intermezzo, I'm Not Running Anymore, Fruit Trader or Miss Missy, especially if these are his "Days of Farewell".  John will be playing at Ravinia in Highland Park, IL.  Would there be any chance your staff could psss this request along?  Thank you and wanna say Thank You, John!
13  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Mellenmoments / Gary and East Chicago, IN on: July 27, 2017, 08:03:32 am
John has sung about Gary, IN in Minutes to Memories ad East Chicago, IN in the song, It All Comes True.  It makes me wonder how he knows about these places to reference them in songs living as he does in southern Indiana.  He's yet to mention Hammond, IN, next to either of those cities. 

It's nice to have any place mentioned in this area of the state that gets so little notice from its capital except to tax it more.

Speaking of John's self-titled album, I believe that is probably one of his least recognized but most artistic CD's, all the loops and musical influences are amazing!
