1 of the best performances I've ever seen. Stunned at the negative reviews from some cities. 4 80's metal heads went to see this show and were rejuvenated by a 71 year old who we couldn't be as cool as in 2 lifetimes. Went golfing next day and we couldn't stop talking about Mellencamp's Performance!

Saw him in concert last week. The beginning half hour was bad, but the concert itself was OUTSTANDING! what did these other people expect from the concert. If they know him and his music he has a message he wants to portray in his songs. I'd see him again, if given the opportunity. Money well spent. As for the disgruntled, stay HOMW!

5.0 star rating Cf from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


well worth the 8 month wait from when i purchased the tickets. Enjoyed every song he did. Fun seeing him jump into audience during "Gloria". The audience was DEFINITELY into the show. That makes a huge difference.I hope I get the chance to see him again.

I don't get the negative review.. I am a fan of the let him be what he needs to be. I think there was enough of everything to please everyone. i didn't mind the movie.. so he has a sponsor.. he wants to continue his art of music.. he didn't take any shit from the record companies that wasn't forced to and gave up movie roles even though he could have made a lot of money because he wanted to make records. He still sounds great for his age... i think he is so real and I love it.. I left wanting more.. but that is because i love his music.. The band was great and he did alot to showcase them. He did so much for regular people..( ie Farm Aide) I will end by saying , there are fans of his radio hits , and there are fans of HIS ,, that is what I am and i loved this PERFORMANCE, it was not a concert!

We saw John at the Beacon last night and he crushed it. He connected well with the audience and 70%+ of the songs were "greatest hits". He sung one song about homelessness, but what struck me is that he didn't blame dems or repubs, progressives or conservs. Just that the system is failing these people. Probably the lease political show I've seen in quite some time. His voice is not what it used to be (he was smoking on stage), but the crowd was very enthusiastic and all in on singing his top hits. Band was tights and the electric violin player was fantastic. Beacon is always a great place to see a show. I read about the 30 min movie, so we showed up at 8:30, just as the show started.

I go to a lot of shows and simply put, we had FUN!!! John Mellencamp is just a cool dude and a living legend. He sounded good, played the hits and some newer song that were actually great! We danced, we sang and really had a great night!!

Everyone complaining about the beginning of the concert when the clips from old TCM are relevant to his songs, for example play guitar, small town, etc are definitely inspired by these movies and if you just took a second to listen, it makes sense. Also, mellencamp voices over clips inbetween before showing the old movie clips to bring perspective (once again listening would clarify for a lot of people complaining). The stage was amazing the background of his set is from a streetcar named desire(it’s relevant!), the crowd was absolutely obnoxious and spoke over him a lot when he was telling stories. As for politics? He mentions how thoughts and prayers don’t do anything to help, sorry if that upsets you boomers. Also, yes he will chastise the crowd IF THEY GET THE SONG WRONG. (If you’re messing up jack and Diane you deserve to have the writer correct you) His band is just as talented as he is. It would be nice if others actually appreciated the work of art that this show is. I loved it
