1  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: WRONG DATES on: November 08, 2017, 12:44:28 pm
I have a lot of those similar stories..Especially with Scarecrow and Lonesome Jubilee. Back before the days of internet to keep up with such things. As I type this, they did it again with UH-uh. Having it released 34 years ago today....It was released in October, not November.

We discussed this with the label. The best we could find in our records was a November release, even though Wikipedia says October, our notes, and articles that we could find, reference today's date as the release, so the label went with what they had.

Does any one have anything concrete about the October release date?

As A John Mellencamp fan since 1982, I know when all his records came out over the last 35 years. They are life events, and the soundtrack to my life. That being said, it looks bad when his own people get it wrong. There was a post on the official FB a few days ago that had Lonesome Jubilee coming out "On this day" in 1990.  This is way wrong- any John fan know LJ came out in August of 87- not October of 1990. Then, they just posted that Scarecrow was released "on this day" 32 years ago. They got the 32 years right, but again, Scarecrow was release in September of 1985, not November.  If the folks making these posts, aren't sure, or do not have the time to research, I would just refrain from making this kind of post. I would think it would be embarrassing, coming from the official FB.  

Thank you for noting it. That's the handiwork of John's longtime record label having bad records and access to our social media pages.

I bought two tickets. I am just wondering when the tickets will be shipped.

You would need to check with your ticket seller. It's very possible your tickets are digital tickets that are downloaded and printed at home

When will Farm Aid tickets be distributed?

Can you explain your question further? Tickets and pre sale tickets have already gone on sale and sold out.
6  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ticket & Tour Questions / Re: Sad Clowns And Hillbillies VIP Tour Package Merchandise on: June 29, 2017, 08:43:08 am
Hi Sharon and Tony:

Wow the VIP merchandise sounds fantastic, cannot wait to receive it!  I am going to the Cary, NC show this evening and have not yet received my VIP swag.  In the past, I have always received the VIP merchandise prior to the concert so I presume it is just delayed as I know there is a chance it can arrive after the show.  Do you have any updates or know who I can contact about this?  I think I remember reading a post from Tony saying the merchandise started shipping around 09 June.

Thanks for your help!!  Can't wait for tonight's concert, so excited!!  Grin

The Front Row/Diamond/VIP package items typically arrive about a week before the show, and at times the week of the show.

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

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

10  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Would Love an Acoustic Album of John's Greatest Hits By the Current Band ! on: May 03, 2017, 03:39:23 pm
I want to place a vote, or a request, that John Mellencamp make a Studio Album of his Early Greatest Hits; But with his Current Band (From the "Sad Clowns & Hillbillies" Album).   
I love the sound of the New Album!  And think a "Modern Acoustic Greatest Hits" album would be Absolutely Fantastic !!!  I can almost hear the violin playing the lead guitar on "Rock In The USA"!

Be sure to check out John's Rough Harvest album, it's very much the kind of album you are talking about. Not all of his hits, but some of them.

How do we find out the Early Entry time for the Boise, Idaho show on June 7? I got VIP tickets which are allowing early entry as it is General Admission at this show. I called the show venue but they didn't know. Said to ask where you bought the tickets. Would that be the Ticket Master people? I thought you may know this.

Thanks for the help !

Oh Yea....Life Goes On.. Smiley

You should receive an email the week of the show from AEG Live with instructions. If you don't have something 7 days out please email us at and we will get the answer.

14  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: Canfield Fair Added To The Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Summer Tour! on: April 18, 2017, 09:50:27 am
Hello, Just wondering how to get the pre-sale code. Any help is very appreciated.

The password for Canfield is sadclowns

Here is more information about how our pre-sale works and helpful links.

Details and explanations of our ticket program, including how to get the pre sale password, is available here:

Details about Premium Ticket Packages are available here:


Step 1 - Register to become a free member of the Community through the COMMUNITY page on

 Step 2 - Consult the details of your show on the TOUR page to see the date and time of your pre-sale. Click the blue information icon for complete details about your show.

 Step 3 - Return to 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.

 TIP: We suggest you click the pre-sale tickets link for your show and pre-register with the ticket seller before our pre-sale begins to avoid any check out issues during your purchase.

 TIP: There are often other pre-sales for John's show. You might try to find and use the passwords from those pre-sales. Credit card companies, venues, tour promoters, ticket sellers often all have their own pre-sales separate from our offering.

 Typically there is a 4 ticket limit per Community Member per show (many shows on the Sad Clowns & Hillbillies tour will have a 6 ticket limit). Our pre-sale has a limited number of tickets and will likely sell out. Tickets are first come, first served and there are no guarantees that you will get a ticket through our pre-sale
