AEG Live Presents: John Mellencamp Plain Spoken Tour

Special guest Carlene Carter

“A triumphant, career-spanning show,” Hollywood Reporter; “Superb performance…still full of fiery defiance,” Boston Globe; “As a performer, he delivered on every level,” Dallas Morning News; are just a few of the vivid descriptions attributed to John Mellencamp’s Plain Spoken Tour of 2015. On the strength of critical praise and high fan demand, the multiple Grammy Award-winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is set to resume the renowned tour with support-artist Carlene Carter.

The tour will see Mellencamp hitting 13 all-new cities and performing songs from 2015’s Plain Spoken, his 22nd studio album and one of the most lauded in his 40-year career, as well as his catalog of fan favorites. Praised as “stark, soul-baring,” Billboard, and drawing comparison to Bob Dylan’s Grammy-winning album Blood on the Tracks, Plain Spoken draws on timely themes including political and social injustice, further cementing Mellencamp’s status as “arguably the most important roots rocker of his generation,” Billboard. Carlene Carter, daughter of June Carter Cash, opens the show.
