With the exception of Life, Death "Live" and Freedom, John has never released an official live album or DVD.  At least nothing I can find in a retail store.  Why is that?

It's a good question and one that came up on a past posting on this site.  I don't have an answer but I think the current tour would warrant it.  There is such a diverse body of work performed and presented in new interesting ways.  Would be great to have it for posterity and would also seem to be another logical step in the evolution of John's music experimentation.

I hope a Live DVD comes out of this tour.  I have a collection of many artists that have done this, and I cherish each and everyone of them. John has mentioned in the past that he feels he could never capture his true performance on tape, but he is wrong, because He can!  If he only knew how many of us would be so happy if he would release a live performance on DVD and album.  Hopefully he is listening.....Somewhere, somehow.  I was at one of the Minneapolis shows and now I bought Premium Tickets this week for the Ames Iowa show, because we just need to see this whole performance once again.  It tells the story of John Mellencamp, this tour is the story of him.  We both agreed that this is the best tour of his career.  He is having the time of his life and it shows.
John lets see your smile and the perfectionist professionalism of you and that of your kickbutt band. We need you to record one live show before April 29th........Please!?  You are the only singer/songwriter that I don't have in my collection and you are by far, my favorite.  It's not right.....

I don't know if he ever reads any of this community board, But, I am sure that word can get back to him if we all beg enough.

I kind of like the idea that he hasn't released the obligatory live album. I guess as with most things involving JM we will get it when we get it. However I would bet money there will be a Mellencamp twist on it........

Blue Ray AND DVD!!  And this tour would be PREFECT for a live album!  I've actually had several dreams about it, driving down the road listening to it or doing laundry with it on my iPod!  Perfection!
