John Mellencamp Show

Set to coincide with a highly anticipated new album release, John Mellencamp will embark on a 2019 tour of The John Mellencamp Show which will feature the rock icon’s classics plus some new material. Hailed by critics and fans alike as one of music’s most authentic and crowd pleasing concert performers, Mellencamp will begin the tour February 7 in his home state of Indiana at South Bend’s Morris Performing Arts Center and will span two months ending at Ruth Eckerd Hall for two shows on Friday, March 29 and Saturday, March 30. The John Mellencamp Show will start promptly at 8 pm and will not have an opening act.
