Here is your chance to see this legendary rock and roller, and champion of family farmers and the middle class, in a city near you! John Mellencamp is giving his fans in 80 cities a chance to see his show. His new material from new album is amazing, and of course he has so many great hits that he can’t play them all in one show, but he sure tries. They are coming to Red Rocks in July and I can’t wait.

Also, every ticket purchased for the 2015 Plain Spoken Tour includes a download of John’s new album Plain Spoken.

Tickets are available for all 80 shows on the 2015 Plain Spoken Tour. Visit the Mellencamp.com TOUR page for further details. http://www.mellencamp.com/tourdates.html

There are a handful of friends and Farm Aid supporters attend the Farm Aid concerts every year, and who kindly help me out and share stories and photos from the concert and the Homegrown Village.    It’s hard to see it all in one day!

Alice, of Atlanta, Georgia shared photos of Farm Aid tee-shirts through the years.
