Hey Tony,
In the Dan Rather interview, John said he was preparing for an upcoming tour. Any info you can give us?

No, there are no firm touring plans at this time. There are always proposals for tours for John to consider so perhaps he is on the cusp of accepting one of those proposals.

Since the completion of the Sad Clowns & Hillbillies tour last year John has been busy working on several projects behind the scenes, including the opening of a new art exhibit at the ACA Galleries in New York City with a new collection of works running from April 26 - June 2nd. John's band members have been working on some non Mellencamp related projects check out their updates below.

The album also features Andy York, Dane Clark and Troye Kinnett from the Mellencamp band. The full album is being released on June 29, 2018 and will be available on all digital platforms. Part 1 of the album is available now. Mellencamp fans may remember Stoll from his opening slot on John's summer 2005 tour." Check out the exclusive video for the first release from the album "I Was All Alone" HERE.

He plays out live on a regular basis with several artists as well. Jon's off the road focus is his Carmel Music Academy located in Carmel Indiana.

are there plans for John touring at all in 2018??

It is possible he will not tour at all in 2018, that is unclear at this time. But nothing before end of summer is expected.

Well Everyone,

I believe John has a read between the lines message even in all that commentary.  We're never going to really know all about him, as he said the artist leaves the shadow persona visible to the public; but maybe he's trying to quietly convey 'here's as much as i'd like you to know about me or remember me by'.  

He says he's 65 at the time of recording the narrative and so maybe this is it or maybe his touring days are like how he ends singing "Small Town".  You think the song is over maybe, then he counts "1,2,3,4.."; and there a few more bars and a couple more minutes to savor listening to John and the band play.

Was the summer of 2017 his band's and his last tour? Anyone seen or heard of 2018
concert dates for John? Is that the tease or the clue?  Roll Eyes

John has no plans to stop touring. He will tour in the future. It is possible he will not tour at all in 2018, that is unclear at this time, but he has toured extensively since 2015.

Will there be an upcoming tour to Europe ??
Germany and Danmark maybe ?
It will be so fantastic.

There currently are no plans to tour overseas in 2018, it is possible in the future, but there is no plan for it.

It appears there was a release of that A & E by Request concert but Amazon & eBay do not show an option to purchase it.  You will see it though at this link but I am not familiar with the retailer that is offering the DVD for sale.

There has not been an official release. That is a bootleg release.
13  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Chicago Theater October 2016 Video on: January 12, 2018, 08:42:05 am
Will the Chicago Theater show be available on DVD? I heard it will be on Netflix next month.
Christine B

Yes it will eventually get released on home video for purchase

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?
15  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: WRONG DATES on: November 07, 2017, 08:57:37 am
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.
