Thank you Fan Club... Tony Sharon and all you Mellenheads......

May I please remind all...Things change everyday... and things will continue to always change.  It's life.  If only we could turn back time.  I got great Orchestra Tickets at the Northrop Minneapolis at 10:04 a.m. for his 2/15/14 show.  I studied and then followed the directions that Tony posted and I had absolutely no problem getting the tickets that I so wanted.  I paid the exact amount per VIP ticket that I did in 2011 for at the State Theater in Minneapolis.  AND...I will continue to pay the price because I want to be that close to the stage.  It is so worth it.  May we just take a deep breath and count all the blessings?  We got a Presale....John is Touring....80 times!....We got a new album coming out in less than a week....He is alive and so are we.... What's with some of the negativity?  I noticed it is from mostly the people who are new on this site.  If they only knew.... We/Me are more disappointed than they are... No more Minutes to Memories nor Club Cherry Bomb Fan Clubs but we roll with the times.  We should be the ones complaining but we are not.  We are grateful.  Thanks JM for this tour and songwriting and singing!  My only wish... We need a female vocal in your band so bad!  Mirium has stated many times... She is not a singer.  She is the best violinist ever tho!

That's great that you can afford $250 per ticket to sit close.  I - like you - have been around for the Minutes to Memories Days when fans paid a membership and in return got first chance at seats close to the stage for the regular ticket price.  Today's doubled price for close seats to anyone that registers on a website is nothing short of scalping tickets.

Just bought Diamond seats for 2! This will be the first time I've seen John since 1992 and I cannot wait.  Will there be any type of meet and greet for Diamond package holders?

u mean a poster, fake "VIP" laminate and "special gift" isn't enough for twice the ticket price?  At least there was the soundcheck last time around.

Is John aware his set list should cover at least 90 mins and roughly 20 songs? The premium packages (double the price in the past) for real fans to sit close is disappointing considering years ago when being in the fan club got you close for no extra money (and backstage passes to boot). Honest Working Fans would like to see a full show at a fair price - and even the chance to see two! But lately the short sets and high prices for fan club seats have been disappointing.

Of course I don't expect a response of substance from the fan club since it's fallen on deaf ears before. This appears to be about squeezing max dollar rather than about the fans anymore. A shame.

I caution you not to make any assumptions about the 2015 tour based on the handfuls of casino shows from this Summer. Those are an entirely different thing with different requests/direction from the casinos than what goes on on a regular full Mellencamp headlining tour.

While John has not revealed how he will structure his show on the new tour I think it's reasonable to assume that since the venues are very similar to the 2010-12 No Better Than This Tour that the show will be setup somewhat similar and the show length (which ranged from 95 to 110 minutes) will be similar.

The ticket prices on the 2015 tour (including the Diamond package) are priced almost identically to the 2010-2012 tour. There are a limited number of Diamond package tickets available per show, they do not consume all of the best seats by any means. There will be tickets in the front rows in the Mellencamp.com presale (the fan club ended nearly 5 years ago) and also high quality tickets will be in the public on sale too.

Change is part of the passing of time. Sorry that things are not exactly as they were 15 years ago, but that was 15 years ago. Sharon and I work very hard to offer John's die hard fans as many good tickets as we can with several different options.


Did anyone get close to the front row without buying the "Diamond" package?  I bought tix in 4 cities and saw no row 1-3's for standard pricing.

Can you imagine having to sit next to this guy.   

U have something against a real fan for many decades not wanting to be taken advantage of with short sets and double ticket prices to sit close?

Thanks for responding but I don't buy that it's the casinos fault for a short show. I've seen other shows in Windsor that were 90 minutes easily. I hope the show is like the No Better Than This tour as far as length.  My point was not about anything being the same as 15 years ago but rather that double charging for a ticket and soundcheck access to get close to the stage is gouging the real fans - something that didn't occur years ago.  It's too bad a fan club doesn't exist if it means real benefits for real fans - not pay double and we'll throw ya a bone.

The 80 city tour sounds great to support the new album.  I hope John has received the message that a 13 song 70 minute set is not fair to his talent and deep catalog and certainly not fair to the fans who pay steep prices to see him.  The double ticket price on this last tour just to get a good seat and watch a soundcheck isn't worth it for a short show.
