07/10/2011 - "It took us 10 000 miles and 19 years to come back" John told us on Tuesday night. 19 years. It had been indeed quite a while since the 'Whenever We Wanted Tour' and John’s previous ‘one-night-stand’ with the Parisian crowd at 'Le Zénith' in April 1992. I don't know how many people from that night were attending John's concert at the 'Olympia' on Tuesday night, quite a few, I would say, by counting the people proudly wearing their WWW Tour T-Shirts, washed up and worn out for sure. Read Jean Cyril's full concert review after the jump. Read More

07/03/2011 - Read Justin Ng's full London show review. Here is an excerpt: "John Mellencamp delivered a great set of 21 songs that lasted close to 2 hours with the bulk of the material from his 80s period (which pleased this reviewer greatly). It was also nice to hear some of the new material mixed in and proving that Mellencamp has lost none of his fire. The intimate delivery for some of the biggest hits certainly made tonight a special event. Lets hope its not another 19 years before he's back on these shores again..." Read More

And he said, "Yeah, yeah, we want to get away from all the strings and the high tenor voices and the sort of melodramatic thing." He wanted to do a kind of country rock sort of crossover, more like "Big River" than the opera...."

"Ultimately what I wanted to do and what John wanted to do is kind of like the anti-"Spider-Man." We wanted to do a musical that had modest aspirations, modest casting, modest staging. Humble, but modest..." Read More
