10/02/2018 - Read Jenn Peake's complete Halifax show review after the jump. Here is an excerpt. "As he finished his final song, every single person was on their feet cheering for him. He stood on the stage, saying thank you as the lights shined on the audience and he stood there for a good solid minute just taking it all in. I found myself doing the same, I was amazed as I looked around the forum to the packed house on their feet, giving John the praise he deserved for one fantastic show..." Read More
09/28/2018 - John Mellencamp’s taking a bit of a victory lap across Canada this fall, a lengthy, coast-to-coast trek over six weeks, with a generous 24 shows from Halifax to Abbotsford, B.C. It’s an extension of his Sad Clowns & Hillbillies tour from 2017, but comes after his June induction in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a full exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where he was inducted 10 years ago, and to top it off, the Woody Guthrie Prize, which he was honoured with in August.

09/27/2018 - American rocker John Mellencamp had a crowd of 3,400 on their feet and singing along to songs like "Jack and Diane" at Moncton's new Avenir Centre Wednesday night.

Dressed in a black jumpsuit with trademark white t-shirt and his greying hair slicked back, the 66-year-old classic rocker led his six-member band (two guitars, bass, accordion/keyboard, violin and drums) through a 90-minute set of his well-known classics and lesser-known bluesy tunes. Instead of an opening act, there was a 30-minute film documenting the rocker's rise to fame through the 1970s and '80s. Read the complete review after the jump. Read More

09/21/2018 - John Mellencamp is a rebel without a cause but not the spitfire refractory type who raises a painting palette with a clenched fist against the art establishment. He’s not a rebel who proclaims a cerebral doctrine, decrees an oppressive ideology or a proponent of some altisonant theory or authoritarian manifesto.

His rebellion is embodied in the physical phenomena, in the palpable materiality of his art. He does not pay any deferential tribute to any arching esthetic dictamina. He propounds in a serenely quiet and countervailing way that art need not subscribe to any one restrictive philosophy but can embrace expansively myriad paths and approaches to self-discovery and the realization of self-expression. Read David L. Shirey's perception of John Mellencamp after the jump. Read More
09/20/2018 - John Mellencamp, one of the three founding members of the long-running Farm Aid charity concert series, says he doesn’t think he or Willie Nelson or Neil Young really understood in 1985 how tough it would be to help small farmers.

“I think… we are proud and surprised and happy to be coming to Connecticut 33 years later,” Mellencamp said in a telephone interview this week in advance of Saturday’s Hartford concert. “But we’re not proud of the fact that this problem is ongoing.”

08/31/2018 - The Woody Guthrie Prize was awarded to everyman artist John Mellencamp during a program at the FlyLoft in the Tulsa Arts District on Thursday.

Mellencamp was introduced as “Woody’s child” by Woody Guthrie Center Executive Director Deana McCloud. Wearing bib overalls and a white T-shirt as he walked on stage, he was greeted by a standing ovation and cheers from the sold-out audience.

When presented with the Woody Guthrie Prize, Mellencamp said: “I’m very honored. I don’t think I’m deserving.” He said he wasn’t being modest. He said he was embarrassed. “So I’m just going to play some songs.”

Mellencamp took a seat for a program moderated by handpicked music journalist Bill Flanagan. The crowd was treated not only to candid responses but to songs in an intimate setting.
