- Carlene Carter opened the show - I had no idea there was an opening act at all and it turned out to be someone I knew and am a fan of.
- Ended up with better seats than I bought.
- Mellencamp was great - good mix of old stuff and new stuff.
- Used Spot Hero to score a parking spot in advance for only $10
Things I Question:
- Theater did a weird thing blocking off two sections of seats in the balcony - including the section that had the seats I bought.
- The theater staff had no idea what they were doing and it was a bit chaotic getting everyone seated.
- John Mellencamp did not do an encore.
He played for about an hour and fifty minutes, then left, then the lights came on. I felt a little cheated - if he had done two and a half hours or more, or did an hour and change and took in intermission then another hour and change...maybe...but no encore? Weird.
Overall - glad I got the tix, glad I went.
