JOHN MELLENCAMP TO TOUR EUROPE FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 1992

2011 DATES ANNOUNCED FOR JOHN'S NO BETTER THAN THIS TOUR
TICKETS FOR UK DATES ON SALE FRIDAY MARCH 18, 2011

For the first time in 19 years, John Mellencamp is set to tour the UK and Europe with dates set for late June and July 2011. The No Better Than This tour is designed as a uniquely formatted "evening with," and brings Mellencamp's music to theatre-sized venues, a rare opportunity to experience one of America's most iconic songwriters and performers in an intimate setting, highlighting all phases of his artistry.

The new No Better Than This Tour dates will take in Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, UK, France, Italy, Switzerland.

The tour will feature both classic material associated with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee's 35+ year long career as well as new music from No Better Than This, released last year by Rounder Records and produced by T Bone Burnett. The album has garnered great critical acclaim with Q stating, "Veteran blue-collar songsmith goes back to basics... with Mellencamp relishing his role as grizzled troubadour steeped in Rootsy traditions of America's rural south."

As a reflection of the diversity of styles and material that have been a hallmark of Mellencamp's eclectic career, the concerts are formatted into three segments. These showcase John Mellencamp in an acoustic context, fronting a small combo recalling blues/country and rockabilly roots and with his full rock band.

Of special note is the fact that the tour's "opening act," is a documentary film by Kurt Markus entitled It's About You. Shot on Super8 film over the course of 2009's Bob Dylan-John Mellencamp-Willie Nelson tour of minor league baseball stadiums, it chronicles the creation of No Better Than This.

JOHN PLAYING MEMPHIS' BEALE STREET MUSIC FESTIVAL
John will headline the Bud Light Stage on Saturday, April 30, 2011! His performance there is of special significance in light of the fact that much of his "No Better Than This" album was recorded at nearby Sun Studio where Elvis Presley, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash and so many made their mark. The Beale Street Music Festival features over 60 acts on 4 stages in scenic Tom Lee Park in downtown Memphis, TN. For more information and ticket details click HERE.
