John Cougar Prowls Through LA: Classic rocker John Mellencamp makes a stop at the Dolby Theatre on his Live and In Person 2023 tour, after putting out the Strictly a One-Eyed Jack album last year. That was his 24th, having put out his debut in 1976. Most would say that the early to mid ‘80s was his brightest spell (American Fool, Uh-Huh, Scarecrow), but he’s never let the quality drop.

According to a press release, “Presented by longtime promoter AEG Presents and sponsored by Turner Classic Movies, the tour will see 76 shows beginning with two nights in Bloomington, Indiana on February 5 and 6 and concluding with two nights in South Bend, Indianaon June 23 and 24. The tour includes multiple nights in New York City, Chicago, Vancouver, Nashville, Clearwater, Minneapolis and more, as well as stops in TCM’s home of Atlanta, Los Angeles and other major cities across North America. Complete list of dates below.”

“The partnership with TCM is a landmark collaboration and a first for Mellencamp, who has never previously had a tour promotional partner in all his years of performing live.”

John Cougar Prowls Through LA: 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22 at the Dolby Theatre.
