Good to hear he is the studio recording new stuff. 2021 - that's cool. Maybe he will come back to OZ then? We can only hope.

Loved when John was dancing with Annie Lennox.

OMG it looked like a great show, we got to see bits of it here in Australia on a news channel.

It is with a sad heart I put this up here:
I have just been diagnosed with breast cancer [currently recovering from a lumpectomy] and will be going through chemo / radiotherapy until the end of March 2019 - this includes all the dates I have bought tickets for.

When I bought the tickets I was living in Canada, but am now back living in Australia.

The problem being I cannot sell the tickets via 'ticket now' as you need to have a residence in US/Canada. Many of them are collect at the venue, but some are print at home. $2000+ is a lot of money to lose. *FYI i have also not be able to access any of the 'free' CD offer as they too only mail to USA/Canada.

I have 1 ticket for all these shows - 2nd row mostly, 2 third and 1 row H. They are all VIP bar 1.

New York all 3 dates x 1
Memphis x1
Nashville 2 dates x 1
Orlando x1
Clearwater 2 dates x 1

Hope someone can help.
This is big ask -  Grin.

You could have eased us into something like this with some later released album comparisons ...  Grin Wink

Still working on my answers... hard to choose when some are a draw!  Roll Eyes

7  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: John and Meg Ryan are engaged.. on: November 09, 2018, 07:38:55 pm
Wow ... Everyone has their own opinions...

I have never met either John or Meg, but I wish them the best as they are making it work for them.

In this day and age it is hard to maintain relationships [or for many even be in  / start a relationship], let alone if you are in the spotlight.

Congratulations.  Kiss Cheesy

8  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Eyes on the Prize - new single on: November 02, 2018, 06:12:33 pm
Though I have heard this song a few times before by different artists, I was keen to hear John's version again.

So, I have had my first listen of the newly recorded version of - Eyes on the Prize [cover] - Other People's Stuff.

It reminded me a lot of the sound quality achieved on the 'No Better Than This' CD / album.

IMHO - slick rhythm and something to groove to.

I can't wait to hear this live.

Wonder what everyone else thinks?
Thanks for the info. I have said it in another thread, but will here too - we usually have to wait a while between albums/CDs - so this is another present courtesy of John [the live Chicago CD/DVD was the first] - thank you.  Kiss

I look forward to hearing the new arrangements for some / all? of the songs. As there are only 10 songs that would mean there are still spaces when performing live, for crowd pleasers / hits.

Will John perhaps be performing 'Eyes on the Prize' as a teaser for any of the remaining shows in Canada, such as Kamloops or Kelowna?

Would be a nice surprise for the Canadian fans.

As this is the official list on the album, there are only 2 songs I'm not totally familiar with. Will be interesting to see how they are arranged. I'm excited about this, we usually have to wait ages between albums - win win for the fans! Thanks John! Smiley
11  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Tour Talk / Re: Lethbridge Show on: October 30, 2018, 10:34:42 pm
Thanks for the update from this show.

Hope the encore thing is a continuing thing.
Maybe the song choice can be mixed up, a different one each time.
Keeps us guessing. Smiley
12  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: THE VOICE JUDGE " JOHN MELLENCAMP" on: October 25, 2018, 01:29:44 pm
A guest judge, like Keith Urban perhaps... but listen to John's thoughts on the processes of the newer artists and then you may have a great insight to whether he'd do this or not.
13  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Album info, single and preorder on: October 25, 2018, 12:49:11 pm
How could it be announced there and not officially here yet...
Sounds fishy...
14  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ticket & Tour Questions / Australian Tour - any chance for 2019? on: October 18, 2018, 12:18:08 pm
 Is there any chance that John and the band will be touring Australia after the USA tour 2019 or later that year? It has been a while since he has come 'Downunder'.

For consideration:
* who the tour promoter is
* when the ads for the shows are actually aired [not 11pm -  midnight, like last time] and frequency
* hitting the social media sites hard to promote and giving enough time for people to plan etc for shows
* getting interviews on the main talk shows [including radio] / morning TV / paid TV like Foxtel, with John to announce the tour etc
* finding someone who knows the type of venues suited to John's style of concert - wineries, not the way to go, long ways to travel, limited accommodation and shite to leave after the show if you are driving - eg Sidney Myer music bowl - great indoor/outdoor area, suited for warmer weather from November to March OR The Plenary - great, intimate venue, new, comfy seating and sound and accessible for transport and accommodation needs [and this is just Melbourne venues as a start]
* picking venues that are central, allows for a wider range of people to access the shows and stay in accommodation that is suited to their financial levels - ie pick a venue within the main cities or larger country cities / towns - guaranteed better attendance and link to public transport etc
* comparative prices to tickets in the US and Canada  - VIP tickets retailed for the last tour, which was cancelled in OZ, for over $1000, compared to $300+ in the US and Canada - even with conversions to AU$, the discrepancy in prices is a lot. NOTED: it is understandable that there a large costs associated with a tour and the distance obviously. I believe IMHO that lowering prices would also improve ticket sales. **Look at how easily they have been selling for the USA tour next year...

Any other Aussies out there have any more ideas? - we really want to get John and the band back to OZ soon...
15  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Album info, single and preorder on: October 18, 2018, 11:48:06 am
maybe once the Canadian tour is done we will get more info... or perhaps he'll treat them with a showing of the new single as a taster in the last couple of shows? Who knows... Roll Eyes
