Mellencamp returns to Clowes Hall

INDIANAPOLIS — John Mellencamp and his band return to Clowes Memorial Hall for the concluding performance of the year-long No Better Than This Tour on Nov. 19 at Butler University in Indianapolis. The tour, designed as a uniquely formatted “evening with,” brings Mellencamp’s music to theater-sized venues, a rare opportunity to experience one of America’s most iconic songwriters and performers in an intimate setting, highlighting all phases of his artistry.

As a reflection of the diversity of styles and material that have been a hallmark of Mellencamp’s eclectic career, the concerts are formatted into three segments.

These showcase John Mellencamp in an acoustic context, fronting a small combo recalling blues/country and rockabilly roots and with his full rock band.

Of special note is the fact that the tour’s opening act is a documentary film by Kurt Markus entitled “It’s About You.” Shot on Super8 film over the course of 2009’s Bob Dylan/John Mellencamp/Willie Nelson tour of minor league baseball stadiums, it chronicles the creation of “No Better Than This” while serving as a cinematic “think piece” on the state of the country at the end of the first decade of the 21st century. Ticket holders are urged to arrive in advance of the film’s 7 p.m. start time.
