John Mellencamp | Saturday Stack May 19th

Check it out, it’s a John Mellencamp marathon!

To be plain spoken, this Saturday is going to rock! We have an all-day lineup dedicated to the one and only John Mellencamp. First, John Mellencamp sits down with the legendary journalist Dan Rather for a no holds barred interview touching on politics, race relations and the state of the country.

Then, put your dancing shoes on and get ready to jam out with the Best of Farm Aid 2017! John Mellencamp joins fellow Farm Aid principals Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews as they take the stage in Burgettstown, PA. This special features the best performances of 2017 including The Avett Brothers, Jack Johnson, Sheryl Crow, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Blackberry Smoke, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, Jamey Johnson, and Valerie June to name a few.

Don’t be fooled, the party is just getting started! Up next, Sammy Hagar travels to Bloomington, Indiana, to hang with John Mellencamp at his art studio. They discuss John’s career, Farm Aid, his passion for painting, and they end with the traditional Rock & Roll Road Trip jam session.

We wanted to end the night with a bang, so we are happy to present to you Plain Spoken – John Mellencamp Live! This stunning cinematic concert film captures John with his full band, along with special guest Carlene Carter, performing his most cherished songs. “Small Town,” “Minutes to Memories,” “Pop Singer,” “Longest Days,” “The Full Catastrophe,” “Rain on the Scarecrow,” “Paper in Fire,” “Authority Song,” “Pink Houses,” and “Cherry Bomb” are some of the gems found on this spectacular concert film.
