WEBSITE EXCLUSIVE - WATCH JOHN PERFORM HIS CURRENT FAVORITE BLUES SONG
When John taped A&E's Private Sessions With Lynn Hoffman in December he warmed up for the session by playing a song called "Delia" first recorded by Blind Willie McTell 71 years ago as part of producer Alan Lomax's sessions for the Library of Congress. John recently raved about the song to Rolling Stone Online. We have John's solo acoustic performance of the gripping song on the homepage of Mellencamp.com. Watch it today!

FRONT ROW WINNERS BEING SELECTED! DID YOU REDEEM YOUR MP3 CODES FOR A CHANCE TO BE SELECTED?
We have started selecting winners, watch your email to see if you have been picked for a Front Row Seat Upgrade! Many of you have not yet redeemed your free MP3 download of No Better Than This - and time is running out for you to win a front row upgrade!

Yes, there's still time to redeem your download and, no, it doesn't cost anything. It's easy too: If you purchased tickets online to any U.S. show on the February through April 2011 No Better Than This Tour and redeemed your album MP3 download codes you have a chance to be as close to the stage as any non-band or crew member to see and hear one of music's all-time greatest singer-songwriters from, quite literally, "the best seats in the house."

A few days before each of the U.S. shows winners of the FRONT ROW UPGRADE will be selected and contacted. Redeem today, before it's too late! Click HERE for detailed instructions.

 

Tour News

THE NO BETTER THAN THIS TOUR - A CONCERT, A MOVIE & A PAINTING EXHIBIT
An evening with John Mellencamp doesn't mean John is just simply playing without an opening act. As people enter the show and get to their seats a movie entitled It's About You will be playing. The film documents John's summer 2009 tour and the recording sessions for his new album. Additionally, a selection of his large format paintings are on display in the lobby! Make sure you look for them at your No Better Than This Tour stop! Click HERE to check out the trailer for It's About You.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

GREAT SEATS STILL AVAILABLE
If you haven't purchased tickets, now is the time! Click HERE to check out the tickets available. You might be surprised at what you find, as we've recently released some excellent seats for all shows.

The tour has received rave reviews from fans and press alike. The show was picked as the best of the year by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, and also by AntiMusic.com's Anthony Kuminski who wrote "John Mellencamp's latest concert tour is full of American fools, dreamers, saints, sinners, and above all else survivors. For over two hours, Mellencamp shined a light on these characters in what is more than his best concert tour in nearly two decades, but without question, the best concert I experienced in all of 2010..."

SEND US YOUR CONCERT PHOTOS AND VIDEOS
Mellencamp.com is going to feature fan photos, and videos from John's Tour!

We are asking Mellencamp fans to upload videos taken at a Mellencamp show, with either their cell phones or cameras, to YouTube.com. Full songs, partial songs, footage of you in the crowd dancing... whatever Mellencamp footage you have, we want to see it! Be sure to include the tag JM2011 to make it easier to find and don't forget to email us with the link to your clips since the best ones will be featured on Mellencamp.com!

In addition, we also want to see your JM concert pictures for another JM website feature. Send your pix of John, the band, the stage, the venue, the crowd - we want to see your coolest shots! Send us your pictures directly or post your pictures on a site like Flickr.com, Smugmug.com, Snapflish.com (again use the tag JM2011), and just send us the link (or pictures) (SendSpace, PhotoBucket, Picasa, etc.) via [email protected].

We are regularly asked about bringing cameras into the shows; typically, small non-professional cameras are allowed at Mellencamp shows, as long as they don't have a detachable lens. Flashes should NOT be used, as this can be very distracting to the band. Video cameras are NOT allowed. However, most personal digital cameras and cell phones ARE allowed and are capable of taking good video clips suitable for YouTube. For more details about cameras, and for Flickr/YouTube tips, click HERE.

 

Website Updates

Email [email protected] with a few photos of the shirts along with a picture of your concert stub and I hopefully will be able to help. I can get this routed to the right person at FanFire.

Prices are high at shows for several reasons. First is the expense of the travel and hauling the merchandise around. Secondly everyone has their hand in the money of the merch stand (venues, promoters, local sales people). I am just glad we can offer them cheaper online for you so inclined to buy separate from the show.
