So ya......

Can anyone tell me why I can't 'legally' purchase a ticket for a decent seat on Ticketmaster, but when I go on Stub Hub I can get a GREAT seat for twice/three times the price?

Seriously.....can't get a ticket in rows 1-3 on Ticketmaster, but could get 50 of them on Stub Hub!!!!

This is so depressing...............

The whole concert scene has turned into a big business for someone....and it's not the artists!

Any idea what a "non-PAT" ticket, first few rows would run?

That is a good question, because I see that PAT are running over $300???!!!  Is that the average price?? I was waiting for Windsor, so I'm if prices are going to be similar.  I seriously cannot afford THAT!!!  I was estimating $200....and that was going to stretch my budget.... Sad

3:48:29 AM?Huh!!! 

I'll ditto everything you said. 

I wish there was more conversation regarding this ... or maybe I've missed it ... again ... I have trouble finding things on the community pages.

As I reminisced about Wednesday night all weekend one thought that came to me was that John is always trying something different.  Musical styles he's treated us to over the years, acting, painting, and now this.  Isn't that cool???  To me that's the sign of a true artist...delving into new territory...always 'pushing the rock up the hill'.

Whether he continues with more of this or stamps out a new 'album'  (Tom!) I'm ALWAYS going to look forward to what he has instore for us.

I just have to say....I'm not so sure I believe the story about getting punched in the eye by one of his sons.....unless it was while they were messing around.  He was too light-hearted about the whole thing.  I don't think we know the whole story. 

Just sayin...

He never did say what actually happened....

On some other branch of this tree someone called it a masterpiece....which I totally agree with.  I love every song and am seeing a whole new creative side to John Mellencamp!  I love Elvis' rendition of "That's Me"...very devil-like.  And for some reason I'm stuck on "So Goddamn Smart".  Personal reasons probably!!  But every song IS a masterpiece.  I cannot wait to see this live!

I think John does have a great sense of humor....like the question to David..."in nine years how old are you gonna be...?" when Dave kept questioning John about the bout with his son.  I just get confused when he says things that don't make sense...

I hope this isn't being taken as a negative discussion...I think it's a great discussion about John's apparent personality traits.  I don't think anyone of us really "know" him...we just like to think we do and we like to speculate on what we think...

I wasn't saying John's words are good or bad....I'm just starting to think he has a lot of issues!  I didn't want to say it, but, yeah, he seems to be "on the dark side"...but I don't think he really wants to be....I've heard he's had anxiety issues...and I feel when he is doing these interviews he is nervous and doesn't know what he is saying half the time.  That's my take.  I think the "dark side" worked well for this project. 

To me it started with Life, Death, Love and Freedom. So much about suffering and dying.  And that worked great for me at the time because my Dad was suffering and died from cancer.  And I found that CD really inspirational because it took me through a life and helped me to face the and deal with the bad stuff.  So I was glad to see John dealing with growing older - even though he says his words 'aren't about him.'

But when he talks I just shake my head and move on...because it's his art in the end that inspires me and makes me think. 

I guess that's why I use the signature I use....I truly believe we are all wondering and searching continuously...and half the time we don't know why the hell we do stuff!!
(That should open up a wide discussion!!)

THAT'S the word....masterpiece!

The two songs that stick in my head right now are "So Goddamn Smart" and "Truth".  But I also love "That's Me" by Elvis Costello....great characterization!!!

And if you are like me and "overthink" every creation Mellencamp...you will learn many lessons as you repeat this performance.

Masterpiece!!!

John is sure a peculiar guy....listening to the interviews he says he doesn't like to collaborate...yet he's done several duets in the past.  He says he's had the same band for ### years....which is not entirely true.  Reading an interview he says the songs he writes really don't have anything to do with HIS life...yet, the themes are often the same...a lot about the devil, a lot about cheatin'....a lot about not gettin' along...a lot taken from things that HAVE happened in his life..

anyone feel the same?

So I've heard the whole CD now...pretty nice!!  Listening to it for the second time now and I think I'm picturing the play...understanding the story a little bit better.  Anyone else have any comments?!  You may notice familiar "lines" or thoughts from other JM songs...(fueding brothers).  You may notice tunes that are also a bit familiar.

I am really enjoying this...cant' wait for the play!
