His new Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Tour, just announced yesterday, has 27 dates confirmed so far between June & September.  East Texas John Mellencamp fans can choose to travel to Dallas-Fort Worth or Houston to see him in concert.  

Mellencamp will take the stage at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie on Wednesday June 21st, then at Sugarland's Smart Financial Centre the very next night, Thursday June 22nd.  According to his official website, tickets for all stops on the 2017 summer tour will go on sale next Friday February 24th.

Side note:  I've got unique shared history with John Mellencamp's guitarist Mike Wanchic.  Check out my bio here for that story.
