getting better with age

loved the old movie clips (never had seen Fugitive Kind/ Charlie5) and the show was better than expected. Loved the story about his gramma who called him buddy. His backing band was superb and John knows how to run the show to perfection. The only oddity to me is why can't he add When Jesus Left Birmingham to the setlist at least once just for Birmingham? According to the setlist website, he's only played it 5 times ever- all in 1994, in PA(2) MA, IL and Quebec. Hopefully he will add that as a surprise next time.

Mellencamp is one of those performers that is a true artist. He is a legend and should be on your list to see live if you haven't already. He's a great storyteller, and he still brings high energy to his performance. He plays a mix of well-known its and lesser-known gems, altho for a lifetime fan like me, was appreciated. I loved that I knew every song he played, but that not everybody in the audience did. Still, on the popular favorites, he had everyone singing along. Also, for those complaining about the film clip at the start of the concert, hm, maybe you should consider why. It was not just random clips. Every single one of those clips features a line or phrase that can be found in one of his songs. They were literally the inspirations that helped forge his music. They were absolutely appreciated by those of us who know that every choice an artist makes has a specific purpose. It amazes me who quick people just reject something they don't understand instead of maybe taking a minute to consider why. IT's that kind of small mindedness that Mellencamp has been waging a campaign against through his music for decades. Truly legendary.

Solid surprising performance

Although the old movie introductions and dummies on stage raised question marks ( at least to me and my wife)-the performance did not-solid sharp upbeat a good two hours-never saw him live until now and it was well worth the wait. if you did not enjoy the performance just not a fan of good music. Or maybe you were the ones yelling political remarks in back of theatre that he asked to quiet down.

Awesome Performance

I have been a fan of John Mellencamp since I was a teenager back in the 80's. His performance did not disappoint. He tells it like it is through his music and his performance was compassionate and outstanding. I was so glad I was able to attend!!!

Was not disappointed!!

I saw Mellencamp in Memphis in 1984 and enjoyed this show as much as that one. Played a lot of classics plus several songs off Strictly a One eyed Jack. John seemed to really enjoy himself and the crowd responded in kind. I didn't know what to expect from earlier reviews but i thought he and his voice and band were in fine form. No preaching just a lot of great music. Having Lisa Germano back adds that something special to the show. I thought the TCM show was too long but most of the crowd knew it was going to be there so no problem in Memphis. If I could I would go back for the second show!!
