If you have not redeemed your code yet (i.e. it is still waiting for you in the email sent to you by Ticketmaster or another ticketing service), you must go HERE to redeem your code in order to receive your download of No Better Than This and be entered into the Front Row drawings.

To enter, all you have to do is redeem the download code you received after you purchased your tickets on (or other online ticket seller) to a show on John Mellencamp's spring tour and you're automatically eligible to win. The final show date of this promotion is April 28, 2011, and does not include any shows in Canada. We'll pick one winner for each show about two weeks prior to the performance date.
