WTF this is ridiculous - he played old movies until 8:30 pm for a start of 8:00 pm. This is AWFUL! We spent good money to see John Mellencamp perform. NOT. DO NOT GO TO THIS SBOW!!!

1.0 star rating Larry from Chicago, Illinois


I agree with the previous reviews. The movie at the beginning was terrible. The crowd was wanting him to play his hits. In the first seven songs he only played two hits. After the crowd was standing after small town, he proceeded to play three songs that no one knew. The crowd was enthusiastic and standing for each one of his major hits buddy only played like five or six. He has a lot of great songs, and this could have been a great concert, but it was one of the worst I’ve ever seen. His voice really sounded terrible. It was one of the worst concerts from age hardest I’ve ever seen.

Ditto what the others are saying. No opening act, started a half hour late, too much politic rhetoric, rude to his paying (A LOT) customers. You used to be such a great guy when you played in Bloomingon bars. Hey John you told us we'd get our money back? How excatly do with do that? I'll take my $500 back. Sorry to part old friend.

Show started with 30 minutes from 1940 - 1960's. Music was awful, Show started at 8:00 (Well he started singing at 8:30 and we left at 9:15.

Everything you read above my review is true! Expensive tix to see a grumpy old man tell you his political views after you suffer through 30 minutes of TCM Old Movies…. I was yawning at that point! I was so excited, but quickly realized seeing this concert was a big waste of time & money. He yells at the crowd, telling someone to go get their money back among other things. He smokes on stage, which doesn’t help the fact he can’t breathe to sing! He needs to stay home & paint. The paintings I actually liked!

I was really looking forward to this show. The movies to start the show, while neat in their own right at a different time and place, went on way too long and sucked everyone's excitement away before the show even started. Then once he finally got on stage he literally hawked a loogie, sang absolutely terribly, could hardly move around the stage, was singing the weirdest and most awful songs I've probably ever heard, and was politically polarizing. You could tell at the beginning that people were really WANTING to enjoy themselves, but after awhile it just couldn't happen. We left early. I'm still glad I went because I would have wondered if I'd have missed something if I didn't, but if you don't need to see it for yourself BELIEVE ME...skip this one. ANYTHING would be a better night out than this.

Waste of money. Could not hear the words he was slurring. The opening did not make any sense to anyone around us. He was hating on people in the audience. He needs to hang it up!!
