1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Tour Talk / Re: Kansas City Show - :( on: November 11, 2010, 04:22:57 pm
Glad to hear that almost everyone else had a good experience, I was not so fortunate. I read a list of songs from the setlist somewhere and truly wish I would have heard the show better. There is nothing wrong with the new music, that is why I had gone.  I would like to thank Tony for his help and doing what he could to make things right.

I heard about the format of the show, I listened to the new album, I bought VIP tickets, I was excited about the show, second row center, right in front of the microphone. What I wasn't excited about was spending $250 a ticket for POOR quality sound, and a performance from someone who CLEARLY does not want to be there. Someone in the front row said that he was "mad" at Kansas City because the local radio stations were not playing his new music. I can understand being mad at the media, but lets not take it out on the people who pay the ticket prices, who buy the albums, purchase concert items, and who praise him for his accomplishments past and present.
I saw him in Omaha on the last tour, paid big bucks for front row seats and got a better show than last Friday night in KC, and he was sick in Omaha. So a bad day in Nebraska is better than a fair day in KC? Clearly he is in this for the money and not the fans, at least from what I see. Also, I purchased VIP to both shows and have YET to get the "extra stuff" that was offered with each purchase. Like W.C Fields said, there's a sucker born every minute, and I fell for it twice.

I have seen John several times and last night's show was a little disappointing. The song selection was good and from what I could hear, played well, but I was 2nd row center and could barely hear the guitars or John singing. He didn't really seem to be "into" the show at all, like he was just going thru the motions. I think next time he comes around I will think twice about spending the EXTRA money for a good seat, or going at all for that matter. I guess if it was an Indiana show, the first/last show of the tour, perhaps he would be a little more appreciative of his fans. Someone mentioned after the show that he was a little angry because the local stations would not play any of his new music and I can understand if he was angry, but taking it out on the fans, the people who make his paycheck possible, really???
