John Mellencamp: The John Mellencamp Show at Century II Concert Hall on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 8:00 PM. Tickets available at WichitaTIX Box Office located inside the Century II main interior lobby by the Concert Hall East Entrance.
John J Mellencamp is known for his catchy, populist brand of heartland rock, which emphasizes traditional instrumentation.
Mellencamp rose to fame in the 1980s while “honing an almost startlingly plainspoken writing style that, starting in 1982, yielded a string of Top 10 singles,” including “Hurts So Good,” “Jack & Diane,” “Crumblin’ Down,” “Pink Houses,” “Lonely Ol’ Night,” “Small Town,” “R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.,” “Paper in Fire” and “Cherry Bomb.” He has amassed 22 Top 40 hits in the United States. In addition, he holds the record for the most tracks by a solo artist to hit number one on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, with seven.
Mellencamp has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, winning one. He released his latest album, Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, on April 28, 2017, to widespread critical acclaim. Mellencamp will release a compilation album of cover songs titled Other People’s Stuff on December 7, 2018 before embarking on a 26-date theater tour in early 2019 that is being dubbed “The John Mellencamp Show.”
