Grammy Award winner John Mellencamp will embark on a 76-date "Live and In Person" North American tour in 2023. The legendary Singer-Songwriter has announced the extensive, five-month tour, which will give fans a chance to hear the Indiana native performing some of his signature heartland-style rock and roll, live on stage.
Known as much for his socially conscience views as he is for hits like "Hurts So Good," "Jack And Diane," "Pink Houses," and "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A." He will be playing all the classic, soulful rock he is famous for. Previously known as Johnny Cougar and John Cougar Mellencamp, he's a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame and a founding member of Farm Aid.
"The announcement of the 2023 tour coincided with Mellencamp’s appearance at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The celebrated musician has a new permanent exhibition at the Hall, "Legends of Rock: John Mellencamp," which expands on the venue’s previous Legends of Rock exhibit" according to the Ultimate Classic Rock website.
The tour will include three stops at the Beacon Theater, June 5th, 6th and 7th. He also plays two dates in Upstate New York on June 13th at the Palace Theatre in Albany and June 16th at Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo.
"After traveling through the interior of the United States, Mellencamp will arrive on the East Coast for a portion of his final tour stops. Once there, he’ll take a stand in New York at the Beacon Theatre, before making his way to Toronto. Then, he’ll follow up with a return to the Midwest, where he’ll end the tour with two nights at Morris Performing Arts Center in South Bend, Ind., on June 24th and 25th" taken from the JAM BAND website.
