Ahhh that is so ironic... I have some Mellencamp tunes as my ringtone too! I had Jack and Diane for a little bit actually but I believe I switched it to Paper and Fire. I don't know because my phone is always on silent. LOL But that's GREAT that you get to see him and hear his songs! He is a real thrill live! <3 I love him! You will probably break down and cry after his shows from pure AWESOMENESS! I know I did haha!

 For 15 years, I lived as a person with progressive unilateral hearing loss. I chose "Jack and Diane" as the ringtone for my phone because I could identify it as mine. Losing hearing in one ear means losing the ability to localize sound and losing the ability to hear in stereo. Three years ago, I had successful surgery to improve my hearing. I am so looking forward to the concert in Utica, NY in October. I will hear the music in stereo! I think that hearing "Jack and Diane" live would still prompt me to look for my phone and bring tears to my eyes.

John’s granddaughter joined him for a segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live, during which John talks about an award from ASCAP, working with Bob Dylan, and playing his old songs. After a commercial break John performed an acoustic version of "Jack & Diane" in the style he has performed it on the Plain Spoken Tour. WATCH NOW.
John on Jimmy Kimmel Live
ASCAP’s highest honor, The Founders Award, went to John Mellencamp for his exceptional contributions to music. Talk show host Tavis Smiley, who presented the award, gave a moving introduction about Mellencamp’s “Authority Song” being the anthem that he and fellow students at Indiana University-- in Mellencamp's hometown of Bloomington -- adopted as they protested the death of a black student named Denver Smith, who was killed by white officers after they shot him six times in the back. 
In a passionate speech, Mellencamp talked about “growing up in public with my songwriting. It was a good thing for me back then, in the early ‘70s, that there was a thing called artist development, when artists could find themselves and their voice,” he said. “I think I made five or six albums before I sold five or six albums. Lucky for me I came along at that time. Now, today, there is no artist development and I’m not sure I’d want to become a songwriter today." Read the complete article (along with several others) covering the evening

Tried getting tix for the Atlantic City show at the Borgata ....I think the Borgata limits the pre sale seats to be average at best.

I'd prefer to pay a premium to get good seats .... The seats via the presale were row 16 and the other pair was on the side.

These are not that good ....anybody have any luck.

At the Borgata section 300 is center ...sections 100 n 500 are far to the sides ...not good and 200 n 400 are good if they are closer to section 300

Anybody have good luck with seats?

Ahhh awesome! What row? I got lucky at a previous show. I had some pretty good seats, but they were off to the side. Me and my friend were sitting alone on the side, and the security guard asked us if we wanted to sit in the FRONT ROW, CENTER. You betcha I had a HUGE smile on my face, haha! Turns out they were trying to fill in empty seats (weird because the show sold out). Maybe something awesome will happen to you. It was the greatest thing a security guard ever said to me haha! I got to touch John's hand because I was so close!  Smiley

Last night, I did probably the most horrible thing imaginable. At least, for a Mellencamp fan. I just felt like sharing this story because it was embarrassingly hilarious, and also devastating. Maybe some of you Mellenheads out there have done somehting similar? Anyways...
So, I had John Mellencamp's autograph in my hands last night and I was jamming out and listening to his songs in bed. I was smiling, having a GREAT time. I was probably the happiest girl in the world, because I had John's autograph right here in my hands, I just saw him live in concert, and he is my HERO. Well, I just happened to look over my shoulder, and I saw a bottle of my perfume on my dresser. I was tempted to put it on, so I did. Then, I started acting like a fool, spraying it around my room while listening to John's music. I was having a BLAST acting like a typical 17 year old girl- (the CD I was playing was Cuttin' Heads, in case you were wondering). Suddenly, I got the "brilliant idea" to spray the perfume on his autograph because I wanted it to smell good. (The WORST IDEA I EVER HAD IN MY LIFE). So I did in fact spray a little bit of it on the autograph. Then I took the sheets and rubbed it off a little so it would dry. What an IDIOT I am! You know what happened exactly... it faded away almost completely! I was so devastated, tears began to run down my cheeks IMMEDIATELY and I quickly grabbed a sharpie to try to write over it... but it's not the same... John, my idol and hero, gave his autograph to me an I ruined it. I didn't even have it for a year! So, I am writing him a letter and I'm telling him all about my foolishness and my genuine mistake, hoping I can have a real autograph and not one poorly traced over by me. I promised him I'd take such good care of it I'll even put it in a frame. I feel like the biggest idiot in the world... and if you've done something similar, please tell me. This was the WORST Mellenmoment I've ever had, hands down.

Oh okay. Well personally I cannot wait for a new album and tour already (whever that'll be lol) I really want to see him perform at different places and cities. And I really want to hear different songs, like "Your Life Is Now". That would be purely awesome. I'm about to go to my 3rd show of the Plain Spken tour and the setlist is (almost) beginning to bore me. I would prefer less hits and more lesser know material, but I know that could NEVER happen. I wish he would do another Live By Request concert.  Oh well! I love all his songs anyways so I'm not complainin'.
