Fresh off scheduling two big shows to promote his portrait painting, legendary homeland rock star John Mellencamp has announced a massive 76-stop North American tour for 2023, dubbed his Live And In Person Tour.

The giant slate of gigs kicks off on February 5 and 6 in Bloomington, Indiana for two nights and concludes with two dates in South Bend, Indiana on June 23 and 24.

The tour also includes multiple nights in New York City, Chicago, Vancouver, Nashville, Clearwater, Minneapolis, and more, as well as stops in TCM’s home of Atlanta, Los Angeles, and other major cities across North America. See the complete list of dates below. 

The partnership with TCM is a new collaboration and a first for Mellencamp, who has never previously had a tour promotional partner in all his years of performing live. 

Tickets for the tour, go on sale on October 7. Fans can register now HERE for the Mellencamp mailing list presale, beginning Wednesday, October 5 at 10 am local time. 

Legends of Rock: John Mellencamp opened this week at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—it’s a new, permanent part of the museum’s beloved and expanding Legends of Rock exhibit. Museum-goers can expect to see artifacts including the suit worn in promotional photos for Mellencamp’s 2003 album Trouble No More, his 1976 Fender Telecaster Custom guitar played onstage extensively and the studio tracking chart for “Jack and Diane” from 1981, as well as an oil painting by Mellencamp himself, Backbone (2022), reworked from a 1993 self-portrait.

And a reissue of Mellencamp’s beloved eighth studio album, Scarecrow, is set for release on November 4. The box set will include two CDs of newly remixed and remastered songs plus previously unreleased bonus tracks and alternate versions, a booklet full of rare photographs, and all new liner notes by acclaimed author and music critic Anthony DeCurtis.
