11/12/2010 - John's recently launched No Better Than This Tour has been barnstorming across the Midwest and breaking new creative ground! The show finds John using numerous configurations ranging from solo acoustic to full-tilt rock during his 24 song/2+ hour performance.

Some of John's best known songs have been "re-imagined" this time around, definitely a stylistic departure of consummate brilliance. The show includes a significant number of songs from No Better Than This so this isn't just a "greatest hits" recital by any measure. The show begins with a small band setup including sounds that reach back to the beginning of the rock era. The middle portion of the show features various configurations of his band moving through acoustic, folk and Americana themed material. The last third of the show is fully electrified as his complete band closes out the show with a smoking rock set. After the jump we have links to some of the best tour content fans should check out.

11/07/2010 - Read Katie Moulton's full show review. Here are some excerpts: "The roots-rock veteran did look like he was having fun last night at the Fox Theatre, punching all his marks while remaining heartfelt..."

"the honesty of Mellencamp's mission comes through in footage of the recording sessions. To see the small band of session players huddled around a single 1940s-era microphone, to think that Better is the first mono-only release to make the top 10 since 1964, and to listen as steady, unobtrusive T-Bone Burnett cajoles profanity-firing Mellencamp into a take - well, that's pretty cool..."

11/05/2010 - Read Evan Schlansky's review of the Nashville, TN show at the Ryman Theater. Here are some excerpts: "His voice, grainy and loaded with gravitas, remains as compelling and as affective as it was the day he recorded ďPink HousesĒ in 1983. Itís a voice thatís as distinctive as any of his arguably more famous peers, from Dylan to Springsteen to Petty, and like those artists, itís attached to a man who has kept integrity high on his priority list..."

"Johnny Cash once referred to him as one of the ten best songwriters, and Mellencampís newer material didnít disappoint in a live setting..." Read More
