OTTAWA – Following two hugely-successful U.S. concert tours, JOHN MELLENCAMP will set out once again this Fall for 20+ stops across Canada for his SAD CLOWNS & HILLBILLIES TOUR, including a stop at The Arena at TD Place on Tuesday October 2. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, June 1 at 10 a.m. at starting at $79.

Mellencamp’s live shows have garnered huge critical acclaim with the Hollywood Reporter calling it a “triumphant, career-spanning show” and a “superb performance…still full of fiery defiance” by the Boston Globe. His extensive touring and live shows have solidified the Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer’s place at the forefront of American music for the past 40 years.

John Mellencamp’s album, Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, featuring Carlene Carter, is his 23rd over the course of a remarkable career. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies returns Mellencamp to the musical eclecticism that is, itself, a reflection of his wide-ranging musings on life and showcases a poet who has wisely used the years between youth and the present day to become an absolute master of songwriting and interpretation. That passion and experience resonates most beautifully in this showcase of his music.
