The John Mellencamp concert in South Bend, IN on Nov. 13 was so awesome.

John played some songs new songs off his “No Better Than This” album, his “Life, Death, Love and Freedom” album and old and favorite songs. He talked about some of the songs.

I had front row, dead center. I danced the night away. Earlier in the show, John shook my hand. He was all smiles. People were saying that “they loved him”. John said that “he loved us”.

During the last song, R.O.C.K. in the USA, my dream came true. John picked me to dance on stage with him. He pulled me up, and I scrambled over a piece of equipment. I was so excited. It was too awesome. John hugged me a few times. He smiled and looked into my eyes the entire time that we were dancing. I’m sure I was smiling. I kissed John on the cheek. Later he put his arm around me and walked me to the front of the stage. He held up his arm and held up my arm. Then I was helped off the stage by a friend and a tall man in the second row. I was so excited and felt so honored to be picked to dance with John! I’ve been a big fan since high school—a long time ago. I’ve been to more concerts that I can remember—over 17.

I can’t wait to see the pictures that my friends took.
