John Mellencamp has announced the continuation of his “Live and In Person” tour into 2024 with 27 new cities. The celebrated musician shared the news today (Oct. 30, 2022). A pre-sale begins Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets for the general public go on sale on Nov. 3, also at 10 a.m. local time here. He will continue to perform songs from his recent LP, Orpheus Descending—his 25th studio album—during his live set.

Mellencamp, born Oct. 7, 1951, is a member of the Songwriters Halls of Fame, a recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, ASCAP Foundation’s Champion Award, The Woody Guthrie Award, the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and most recently, the Founders Award, the top honor assigned by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.

Mellencamp has continued to focus on another facet of his artistic expression: painting. Last year, he released a self-curated book of his work, John Mellencamp: Paintings and Assemblages, which is out now on Rizzoli New York.

A reissue of Mellencamp’s beloved eighth studio album, Scarecrow, featuring the classic rock favorites “Small Town” and “R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.,” was released in 2022 via Mercury/UME. The box set includes 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.
