John Mellencamp Plain Spoken Tour

This show has passed

Event Description

John Mellencamp's Plain Spoken Tour has been called “a triumphant, career-spanning show” (Hollywood Reporter) and a “superb performance…still full of fiery defiance” (Boston Globe). The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer launched the tour in early 2015 to support his critically-acclaimed 22nd studio album ‘Plain Spoken’ and extended with dates through Spring 2016 due to overwhelming fan demand.

Praised as “arguably the most important roots rocker of his generation," Mellencamp's  illustrious career has spanned more than four decades and continues to endure.

Mellencamp’s  career  in music, spanning  more  than  35  years, has seen him transition from pop star to one of the most highly regarded songwriters of a generation. 'The Voice of The Heartland' continued to evolve artistically with Plain Spoken, John's 22nd full length album. Mellencamp is incredibly acclaimed. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a Grammy winner, a recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, ASCAP Foundation’s Champion Award, The Woody Guthrie Award, and Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award. Also, John is set to receive the prestigious ASCAP Founders Award - another milestone in his brilliant career. He is also one of the most successful live concert performers in the world. The social activism reflected in his songs helped catalyze Farm Aid, the concert series and organization that has addressed the struggle of American family farmers for more than 25 years. The unique instrumentation of his band and his poignant songs about everyday life in the American heartland, are widely credited with being the forbearer of the Americana/No Depression genre of rural-inflected music. The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County is a musical with music and lyrics by John Mellencamp, a libretto by author Stephen King and production by T Bone Burnett. The musical completed two successful tours in North America and is currently in workshop in London. John Mellencamp completed an 80-city tour in North American in 2015, and is continuing the journey for more lucky fans in 2016.
