Received a promo poster of the film autographed by Mellencamp today!  Won a Facebook contest through Laemmle Theaters which showed the film.

Any idea how many of these posters were autographed??

Were you there yesterday? I noticed some of what you mentioned is missing from the article you linked to, so just wondering.

Yes-very good review by the writer.  The crowd did get a bit restless from the length of the film and then a 25 minute break.  I would have handled that transition much differently if I was producing the show.  Took a lot of drama out of the film setup and utilization-I would go straight to the CASH tune then, band comes out then Mellencamp.

Write up from the O.C. Register, Ben Harper in the house T-Bone onstage.

Very passionate delivery of The West End.  Funny remarks about he and a "girl" walking down the street yesterday, and an add lib change up during Small Town-it's funny so I won't post it, but it's related to "now she's small town just like me" line. Wink

We're in Orch AA pre-sale very smooth, face value for that section reasonable in comparison to artists of Mellencamp's stature.

So a couple hundred bucks-these days that's approximately what we'd pay to see a broadway show, and after seeing Mellencamp open for Dylan in Ontario, California, we are eagerly anticipating a more full featured performance.

I love the idea of the pre-concert film...very nostalgic, and the three set concept-bliss.

Been a fan since the early 80's and love the music that he doing these days.  It's not about how you start it's about how you finish as an artist.  Johnny Cash finished strong my friends.

{quote} Unfortunately Ticketmaster and most systems don't let you exchange your tickets. That is not a John Mellencamp rule, that's a system limitation.  {/quote}

In this case, your explanation about the baskets is not what happened. There were pleanty of seats available in the center section all day today.  I was on the phone with ticketmaster for at least 2 hours.  All the while, those tickets were selling.  I watched the best available move from row e to f ......  and to K.  When I finally gave up and realized they were not going to let me change my tickets from one section to another.  TicketMaster's official position is that they would be glad to exchange my tickets.  However, the event promoters would not allow it.

Wow, that would be great if they are allowing it now. However in my extensive dealings with Ticketmaster I have never heard of them doing that, just flat out cancelling an order and swapping the tickets for other ones available. At one point in time in the 90's I worked for a ticketmaster subsidiary and two of my best friends are high up at ticketmaster, I feel I know the system pretty well.

Who knows, maybe it all along has been a promoter restriction preventing it, but as far as I know it doesn't happen with ticketmaster shows. Once you buy the tickets they are yours unless the show is canceled or you sell them back to a ticket system endorsed reseller.

Maybe they were also talking about their official reselling system (ticketexchange) which may be prevented for this show per the promoter or John's management for this show.

There are some box offices that will do that will do exchanges in certain situations though, but they tend to be the ones that do the selling directly.

Clearly on the TM site their are no exchanges if "better" seats become available.  Also certain seat locations become available if for whatever reason a credit card or other form of payment doesn't clear, i.e. they return into the system.

I was there front row, center stage (had a red IU baseball cap on).  The Dylan fans around me all thought Mellencamp put on a great show.  Sorry you had to sit by idiots.  

It was good to see John although not as good as seeing him as the headliner (fewer songs), but I knew that going in.  It was a great warm up for the shows this fall and early next year.

I spotted you!  We were third row center surrounded by the Bob fans who probably have known each for years-at least that's how it seemed.  Two to my left actually stood for the Mellencamp set but were "reserved" as opposed to their elation when Dylan took the stage.  Mellencamp appeared to be a bit parched during the set having several drinks of water throughout.  It was just about the tightest hour set of music of seen in quite some time.  "If I Die Sudden" live is stunning.  Hopefully we'll get some west coast dates in 2011, and I'll be back for the 90 minute version, with more of the recent album tracks being played.

They had to have recorded more cuts in the hotel room.  They put parquet flooring over the carpet - don't think they'd do that for just one track.  But who knows.

I purchased at Target, since they seem to carry the latest popular releases.  The CD was in the new releases section.  Interesting packaging, not shrink wrapped, but a fold over type baggie with tape, and no jewel box, probably for environmental reasons, and/or theme of the release.  Paid $7.99 which is a great price, and based on JM's recent comments about digital downloads, I'm pleased that I have a pristine CD copy.  In that section there were three remaining at 8:00 P.S.T.

JM is right on with his comments about the Beatles recent reissues on the CD vs. digital formats.  Seems like T-Bone would agree.

Been a fan since the 80's and I absolutely wore out Mellencamp's last studio album since he teamed with T-Bone.  Will be seeing him live for the first time from the third row in Ontario, CA. soon!
