10.15.2016 - “Ladies and Gentlemen, from Bloomington, Indiana, please welcome Mr. John
Mellencamp,” echoed throughout the F.M. Kirby Center.
The lights on the stage rose and a six-piece band stood together on stage.
Chords from “Lawless Times” shook the theater as guitar and fiddles were met
with cheers and claps.
Then, out walked the man of the hour, which brought everyone to their feet as
he bowed to his fans.
John Mellencamp wowed a sold-out crowd at the F.M. Kirby Center for the
Performing Arts Friday evening as a part of his seventh and final leg of the
Plain Spoken Tour. Read the complete Kirby Center review after the jump. Read More
08.29.2016 - John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham are
featured on the official soundtrack to the Showtime series
Roadies, which was just
released digitally and will be available for purchase as a physical album
Friday, September 2. The record is made up almost entirely of new live
performances by various artists, many of whom made cameo appearances on the
show. Purchase the official soundtrack now on
Apple Music. Purchase “Longest Days” from John's July 31, 2016
Roadies creator, writer and director Cameron Crowe explains of the show’s
music, “Great care was taken that the songs chosen for each artist have another
meaning, a thread to our story or characters. The only rule was: no lip-syncing
to playback. Not even to live versions recorded in a previous take. These would
be authentic live performances. Real performances. That’s where the magic
happens, for an audience and even a crew.” Read More
