Those were really good videos of Ontario! If I get another chance to see Mellencamp it will be outdoors where I might be able to move around a bit. The show in Greensboro was not in the coliseum but in the auditorium. Maybe it was too small a venue for the sound co. His new sound is a lot like older johnny cash with robert johnson thrown in to the mix. Is he trying to channel the old musicians of days gone by? I think it was his older fans who went to his show and the fear of being upstaged by an opening act prompted the movie. At any rate lets hear it for the cheap seats.

saw John in Greensboro on the 6th. I too was cheated. We had orchestra seats and were totally disgusted with the sound. The first set was loud, muddy mix,all bass and drums with no vocals. Second acoustic set i thought John forgot how the songs went,as if he didn't want to be there. The third set with full drums and electric bass was more than the inept sound man could handle, maybe because his unprofessional self was trying to hook up with a fan during the movie. I like Mellencamp and  his music, knew Andy in high school (Scorchers,Mott the Hoople) and wanted to see if his skills had improved. I think the business of music and slick production has driven artists to tell the same "Buddy" stories over and over and not concentrate on the job at hand. 830 to 1030 is a good gig if you can get it! I still love his songs and on his stage it probably sounded good, but whoever got the nod for the house P.A. don"t deserve a Christmas bonus! $90 a ticket was too high,$9 for a 24oz. Bud Light was OK. but....I ain't ever satisfied...
