Music Legend John Mellencamp Schedules 2023 Denver Show
The man who's brought midwestern American attitude and values to the world will be making a rare appearance in the Mile High City in 2023.
Who of those Americans that grew up in the 1980's didn't have at least one John Cougar/John Mellencamp album? He's had so many great songs, and he'll be taking them out on the road.
There are nine songs on John Mellencamp's "American Fool" which came out in 1982, and I think I heard those nine songs close to 300 times. I played that album over and over again; all those songs seem to reach right through the speakers of my cheap stereo and go right into my soul. Many millions of people agreed.
Mellencamp's eighth album release in 1985, "Scarecrow" is an unforgettable collection of songs about America. "Small Town," "Lonely 'Ol Night," "R.O.C.K In The U.S.A" are just a few of the great songs that became huge hits for Mellencamp.
John has put out 16 albums since "Scarecrow," including 2022's "Strictly a One-Eyed Jack," which includes the duet with Bruce Springsteen, "Life Full of Rain."
Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, the hall recently announced that there will be a permanent John Mellencamp exhibit as part of its "Legends of Rock" exhibit series.
According to his website, John is working on his 26th studio album. 2023 will see the release of that album and a tour, which will make a stop in Denver. With him now into his 70's, he won't be touring much longer; we should go see this show.
