JOHN MELLENCAMP SAD CLOWNS & HILLBILLIES 2017 SUMMER TOUR ANNOUNCED - TICKET ON SALES START NEXT WEEK
Following the seventh and final installment of his hugely-successful Plain Spoken Tour, John Mellencamp will set out once again this Summer across North America for his all-new Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Tour.  Kicking off on June 5th in Denver, Colorado, the tour will continue throughout the United States with stops at the historic Greek Theatre in Los Angeles before concluding in Essex Junction, VT at the Champlain Valley Fair. Mellencamp will be joined by special guest and 13-time GRAMMY-Award-winning singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris, as well as his Plain Spoken tour mate Carlene Carter, and folk-pop sister duo Lily & Madeleine. Multi-platinum selling recording artist Jewel will also step in for the tour’s two Oregon dates, substituting for Emmylou Harris as the special guest opener.

Tickets are currently on sale for several concerts with additional dates yet to be announced for IL, IA and CT! Public ticket on sales start on Friday, February 24th at 10:00 AM local venue time (New Hampshire goes on sale at 11:00 AM). A Mellencamp.com Pre-sale will begin starting Wednesday, February 22nd at 10:00 AM local venue time.  
Every online ticket purchased comes with one (1) physical CD of John Mellencamp's forthcoming album, Sad Clowns & Hillbillies. John’s 23rd full-length album, featuring Carlene Carter, returns Mellencamp to the musical eclecticism that is, itself, a reflection of his wide-ranging musings on life. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies showcases a poet who has wisely used the years between youth and the present day to become an absolute master of songwriting and interpretation. That passion and experience resonates most beautifully in this showcase of his music. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies is set for release in April 2017 from Republic Records. Read the complete press release on Mellencamp.com.

Hi:

I have always purchased Diamond VIP Package seats for past JM concerts I have attended and the seats for this package have always been in the first 5 rows.  For this upcoming concert, the Diamond VIP Package seats description says "One amazing reserved ticket"...so, where are these seats?  I know there is a Front Row VIP Package option available for most of the concerts in this upcoming tour, so I would like to know where the Diamond VIP Package seats will be in case I miss out on the front row package seats.

Many thanks for your help!!  Smiley

Previous diamond ticket packages were in the front 10 rows when John played theaters. That will generally be the case on the 2017 tour, but some venues have different seating configurations so we are erroring on the side of caution. Diamond will start in row 2 and go back generally about 10 rows. Since when you buy tickets you are shown exact seat locations you will be able to see where the Diamond VIP tickets you selected are located.

Here is the description of the tickets for the Fall 2016 Tour.
FALL 2016 PLAIN SPOKEN TOUR PREMIUM TICKET PACKAGES
Each ticket includes one concert ticket - price includes all fees and service charges except for facility fees - Limit of 6 packages/tickets per order. Each package includes:
• One Amazing Top Price Reserved Ticket in the First Ten (10) Rows *
• One Limited Edition, Silkscreened John Mellencamp Art Work Poster (Designed Exclusively for the Plain Spoken Tour)
• One Exclusive John Mellencamp VIP Gift (Created Exclusively for Diamond Package Purchasers)
• One Commemorative John Mellencamp VIP Tour Laminate
* Venue seating configurations can vary market-by-market

Since there is no tour dates for Indiana, Ohio, for the summer Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Tour. Do you know if there will be a second leg of the tour later this year?

Thanks!

I am so excited that John is coming to Chastain in Atlanta! I still think he should take a look at the Classic Center in Athens, GA though. It's an awesome place! Just ask Willie Nelson  Wink

Best,

At this time the 2 announced Summer Tour legs are all that is planned. Naturally we can hope that JM really enjoys the Summer Tour and adds more legs. Please note there are still IL shows along with CT and IA shows to be announced for August.

The VIP prices vary from venue to venue. They should be around the $200 - $400 price range depending on what show you want to attend.
