1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Tour Talk / Ft. Lauderdale Concert......WTF.... on: March 06, 2011, 06:44:29 pm
Was not, what I expected……

Well, I finally went to see my first John Cougar Mellencamp concert on 3/3/11 in S. Florida.
I must admit, myself and everyone else was VERY disappointed!  We all wanted to hear the hits throughout the years, not the new bluegrass stuff! I have been hearing for a long time how good his concerts were and I finally went to rekindle my childhood. He sang songs that all sounded alike. Even the documentary left everyone stunned! (What was that?)  He even mentioned to the audience that the old stuff is the past and he wants to move on!!!! However, the old stuff is what the fans want to hear. I know that he recently stated that he feels like a “Monkey” playing the same old songs, but that’s what the fans want. My grandfather worked on the assembly line for Ford motor company for over 30 years. Sure he was tired doing the same mundane task every day, but it was his job! Cougar even butchered the song “Jackie & Diane” My Favorite! When he sang this, it was nowhere near the original. I have never been to a concert before where all I did was look at my watch waiting for it to be over! It was that bad!!! I wish john would offer a refund, because I would be first in line. I was not the only one who felt this way. Other concert goers were leaving. We all wanted to let loose and dance, but couldn’t. I can’t believe that “John” didn’t notice it. Every time he would play an old song the crowd would rush to the stage, in hopes that this was the start of a string of hits.  However, he left us walking back to our seats! I would advise that any fan who wants to hear the hits, to stay away from this tour. I have never left negative feedback before about past concerts, but that’s how upset I am with this one!
