John Mellencamp has announced a massive 76-date 2023 tour, which kicks off on February 5th in Bloomington, Indiana and wraps on June 24th in South Bend, Indiana. Ultimate Classic Rock reported the five-month trek will play multiple theater stops in most cities.
Regardless of some of the high class venues he performs at, John Mellencamp always hopes that his audience acts with the proper decorum befitting any live show he performs these days: “People that come to my shows are, y’know — I hope — are a bit more elevated in their music taste and know that they’re coming there to hear music and not coming there to fight or get drunk or to party. Y’know, don’t get me wrong — I have nothin’ wrong with people havin’ a drink, or, y’know, bein’ stoned a little bit, but I don’t want fights breakin’ out. I don’t wanna have to stop the show ‘cause people people are jumpin' off the stage. I just can’t deal with that. Y’know, that was all really fun when you were 28 — it’s silly now.” SOUNCUE
