I wish he would consider a Moncton or Halifax stop. I really like that guy.

I've liked his work ever since he was John Cougar, or John Cougar Mellencamp, or was it John Mellon Cougarcamp???? No, really, John Mellencamp has produced some wonderful tunes over the years.

Wonderful tunes, one after the other. He's got a good head on his shoulder. He used to called himself, "The Little Bastard."

He's not to crazy about politicians, I of course dont blame him. You can hear about it in some songs.

Our songwriters here in Canada that challenges Politician I think would be, Fred Eaglesmith or even, 'Mendelson Joe'... Do you guys remember him ? He was great...

Stompin Tom, on the other hand is a proud Canadian, his heart bleads for this country.

John Mellencamp 2008 Canadian Tour Announced
MELLENCAMP SETS TWO WEEK CANADIAN TOUR SWING IN FEBRUARY - TOM COCHRANE & RED RIDER ON THE BILL THROUGHOUT

BLOOMINGTON, IN, Nov. 5 – John Mellencamp, who just embarked on a six week U.S. tour this week, will be performing a series of Canadian dates, across six provinces, in February 2008. Mellencamp will be joined on the bill by Canada's own Tom Cochrane & Red Rider for a total of 12 performance dates that kick off on February 1 in Montreal. The tour goes on to Ontario for dates in Ottawa, London, Toronto, and Sault Ste. Marie. These will be followed by concerts in Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Red Deer, and Calgary, with the last three dates on the Pacific Coast in Kelowna, Vancouver, and Victoria.

Mellencamp noted, "We're very excited about playing these dates with Tom for our friends across Canada. We've incorporated some interesting innovations in terms of staging and lighting that are working out very well for us on the current tour that we'll be bringing along. But, of course, what's most important, the essence of these shows, is the music and the songs."

Tom Cochrane commented, "We will be doing a one hour set and it will be packed with songs like 'Life Is A Highway,' 'Big League,' 'Lunatic Fringe,' 'White Hot,' 'Boy Inside the Man,' 'Good Times' and more: songs that are close to a lot of Canadian hearts. The band is sounding outrageously good these days and we are looking forward to this tour."

Mellencamp and his band -- Mike Wanchic, (guitar), Andy York (guitar), Dane Clark (drums), John Gunnell (bass), Miriam Sturm (violin), and Troye Kinnett (keyboards) -- have been working together almost continually since early in August when they participated in recording sessions for a new album, as yet untitled, produced by T Bone Burnett. It is expected that some of the songs from that album will be performed on the Canadian concert tour as well as Mellencamp's classic repertoire.
