03/04/2011 - Read Andy Greene's full Radio City Show review after the jump. Here are some excerpts: "For much of the last two decades, Mellencamp concerts have been built around his greatest hits. “I feel like a monkey on a string,” he says. “I’m a music lover, and it just turned into a spectacle. I could have made more money [on this tour] if I waited until the summer and played the hits. I’m just not that interested in that anymore...”

"The two-and-a-half hour set is his longest in years, and it’s not even the whole show:"

02/04/2011 - If you're coming to hear the greatest hits, don't even come," John Mellencamp, who kicked off a 33-date run last night in Lowell, Massachusetts, tells Rolling Stone. For his first theater tour since 1997, Mellencamp is playing a two-hour-plus show that includes a solo acoustic miniset and a country-blues combo, before finishing with a full band.

"I have zero interest in walking into an arena and banging out those hits again," he says. "I'm 59 years old. and I look fucking ridiculous." Instead, he’s busting out rarities like 1989's "Jackie Brown" and covering Blind Willie McTell. Even his biggest songs are getting reworked: "Authority Song" got a rockabilly makeover, and "Jack and Diane" has become a country-swing tune.

Instead of bringing along a warm-up band, Mellencamp is screening a documentary, It's About You, shot on the road during his tour with Bob Dylan in 2009. "I like the idea of people walking into the theater and a movie is playing," he says. "It'll be like those old Dick Clark Caravan of Stars revues."

After the jump read Patrick Doyle's full article that includes the set list.

01/25/2011 - January 20, 2011 Issue - By Patrick Doyle - Wild Nights: “If you’re coming to hear the greatest hits, don’t even come,” says John Mellencamp, who will kick off a 33-date run on February 3rd in Lowell, Massachusetts. For his first theater tour since 1997, Mellencamp is prepping a two-hour-plus show that includes a solo-acoustic miniset and a country-blues combo, before finishing with a full band. “I have zero interest in walking into an arena and banging out those hits again,” he says. “I’m 59 years old, and I look fucking ridiculous.” Instead, he’s busting out rarities like 1989’s “Jackie Brown” and covering Son House. Even his biggest songs are getting reworked: “Authority Song” will get a rockabilly makeover, and “Jack and Diane” has become a country-swing tune.

Big Screen: Instead of bringing along a warm-up band, Mellencamp will be screening a documentary, It's About You, that was shot on the road during his tour with Bob Dylan in 2009. “I like the idea of people walking into the theater and a movie is playing,” he says. “It’ll be like those old Dick Clark Caravan of Stars revues.”

What’s Next: The singer’s decade-in-the-works musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County – a collaboration with Stephen King – will premier at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre in 2012. Liv Ullman is set to direct, Meg Ryan may star, and the soundtrack is nearly done. Produced by T Bone Burnett, the LP will include tracks written by Mellencamp and sung by Kris Kristofferson, Elvis Costello and Rosanne Cash. “For Americana music,” says Mellencamp, “it’s about as different as Sgt. Pepper was for rock music.”
