John Mellencamp appears at DAR Constitution Hall on Thursday, April 18, for a date on his Live and In Person 2024 Tour!
Presented by longtime promoter AEG Presents, the tour will begin in Rochester, New York, on March 8 and conclude in Savannah, Georgia on April 23.
The new dates celebrate Mellencamp’s most recent album, Orpheus Descending, released to widespread critical acclaim last June on Republic Records.
Mellencamp continues to perform songs from the new LP, Orpheus Descending, during his live set. The Chicago Tribune says “Awash in death, ‘Hey God’ functioned as a plea for deliverance from senseless gun violence. Preceded by a story about his encounter with a 20-something homeless woman, the solo acoustic ‘The Eyes of Portland’ took aim at the empty “thoughts and prayers” condolences offered as a solution to major tragedies and dilemmas.”
Orpheus Descending, produced by Mellencamp and recorded at his own Belmont Mall Studio, marks Mellencamp’s 25th studio album. One of his most personal records to date, standout tracks “Hey God” and “The Eyes of Portland” focus on social issues Mellencamp continues to passionately advocate for.

Mellencamp is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, ASCAP Foundation’s Champion Award, The Woody Guthrie Award, and Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award — and more recently, the Founders Award, the top honor assigned by the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers and a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Last year, he released a deluxe edition reissue of his beloved seminal album, Scarecrow, which features a massive collection of bonus tracks, rarities, and more never previously shared before. His critically acclaimed studio LP, Strictly A One-Eyed Jack, was released early last year to praise from The New York Times, NPR Music, Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and more.
