John Mellencamp Confirms Continuation of Acclaimed Tour with “Live and In Person 2024”

Folk-inflected rock artist John Mellencamp confirms the continuation of his acclaimed tour “Live and In Person 2024”, performing in 27 cities including Schenectady and kicking off in Rochester on March 8, 2024.

Mellencamp is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, ASCAP Foundation’s Champion Award, The Woody Guthrie Award and Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award and more recently, the Founders Award, the top honor assigned by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers and a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

“Beyond being just a rock star, he’s written songs that moved people, American anthems about teenage romance, about coming of age into adulthood, about families suffering through hard times in a trickle-down economy.” 

– Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Last year, he released a deluxe edition reissue of his beloved seminal album, Scarecrow, which features a massive collection of bonus tracks, rarities and more never previously shared before. His critically acclaimed studio LP, Strictly A One-Eyed Jack, was released early last year to praise from The New York Times, NPR Music, Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and more.

The tour will kickoff in Rochester on March 8th with stops including Newark, Hartford, Schenectady, Washington D.C. and more with tickets going on sale Friday, November 3rd. The new tour dates will celebrate Mellencamp’s most recent album ‘Orpheus Descending’, recorded as his 25th studio album, exploring political and personal themes that compliment his American rocker artistry. He will continue to perform songs from the LP including standout tracks “The Eyes of Portland” and “Hey God” that highlight social issues Mellencamp continues to passionately advocate for.
