John Mellencamp To Perform For The Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center Benefit Dec. 14th
11.13.2018 - John Mellencamp was announced today as the feature performer for the 40th Anniversary of Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center Benefit Celebration, taking place Friday, December 14 at Auer Hall at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, 200 S. Jordan Avenue. Tickets and VIP packages will go on sale this Friday, November 16 at 10am ET at Ticketmaster. Please see below for VIP package options. https://www1.ticketmaster.com/event/05005569F2BC778F

Attendees will be treated to an intimate, acoustic performance from Mellencamp, as well as a conversation with the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center’s director, Arjia Rinpoche. Doors will open at 7pm, with the show beginning at 8pm. Auer Hall is located on the second floor of the IU Simon Music Center.

The TMBCC is located at 3655 Snoddy Road on 108 acres of ground in the southeast corner of Bloomington, Indiana. It was founded in 1978 by Thubten Norbu (Tagtser Rinpoche), the Dalai Lama of Tibet’s eldest brother. In 2002, Norbu suffered a series of strokes and in 2005, His Holiness the Dalai Lama appointed Arjia Rinpoche, the former Abbot of Kumbum Monastery in Amdo, Tibet, to be its director. Under the leadership of Arjia Rinpoche, the TMBCC has continued to thrive and attract Buddhists, scholars, and other interested persons from all over the world to its grounds and to attend its programs. Its mission is to support the Tibetan and Mongolian Buddhist cultures both in Asia and in the USA, provide Buddhist teachings in the Bloomington, Indiana area, and promote interfaith peace and harmony.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet has visited the TMBCC on six occasions, during which he consecrated the grounds and buildings and gave Buddhist teachings and talks to the general public.

The religious seat of the TMBCC is the Kumbum Chamtse Ling Temple that was built in 2003. Its mission is to promote interfaith peace and harmony. Along with the Dalai Lama, eleven different faith traditions cut the ribbons at its dedication. Its Jangchub Chorten and the Kalachakra Stupa are traditional Buddhist monuments to the Enlightened Mind of the Buddha.

Arjia Rinpoche and John Mellencamp have been friends for more than 10 years. The TMBCC is grateful to John for his continual support and extends to him its heartfelt thanks for performing this Benefit. For more information, please visit www.tmbcc.org.

Mellencamp will embark on his 2019 tour “The John Mellencamp Show” from February to April, starting with a sold out home state show in Indiana. The tour will follow the release of Mellencamp’s new album “Other People’s Stuff” on December 7 via Republic Records.
