John Mellencamp Adds Third Leg + Second NYC & Toronto Shows

Posted by gppasswords On October - 25 - 2010

Third Leg + Second NYC & Toronto Shows Announced for John's No Better Than This Tour!

With the first dates of John Mellencamp's No Better Than This Tour getting underway this week and following the recent announcement of the tour's second leg starting in February of 2011, comes notice of a third leg of dates next spring as well as two added shows in New York and Toronto in February. The newly announced string of No Better Than This tour dates will bring Mellencamp, his music and his band to Texas, the west coast, western Canada and circling back to the U.S. Midwest.

Presales will be held on Wed Oct 27th and Thur Oct 28th. We will have passwords here.

The tour, designed as a uniquely-formatted "evening with," brings Mellencamp's music to theater-sized venues, a rare opportunity to experience one of America's most iconic songwriters and performers in an intimate setting, highlighting all phases of his artistry.

The tour will feature classic Mellencamp material associated with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee over the course of his 35-year-long career as well as the new music from No Better Than This.

Tickets purchased for the newly-announced U.S. dates include a digital download of No Better Than This. Details on how to redeem the album download will be sent via email a few days following ticket purchase. A tutorial outlining this process has been posted on Mellencamp.com.

As a reflection of the diversity of styles and material that have been a hallmark of Mellencamp's eclectic career, the concerts are formatted into three segments. These showcase John Mellencamp in an acoustic context, fronting a small combo recalling blues/country and rockabilly roots, and with his full rock band.

Of special note is the fact that the tour's "opening act," is a documentary film by Kurt Markus entitled It's About You. Shot on Super8 film, over the course of last year's Bob Dylan-John Mellencamp-Willie Nelson tour of minor league baseball stadiums, it chronicles the creation of No Better Than This while serving as a cinematic ?think piece' on the state of the country at the end of the first decade of the 21st Century. Ticket holders are urged to arrive at their respective No Better Than This Tour venues on time to be on hand for the film?s start.
