Beginning on Feb. 5, the legendary John Mellencamp will embark on a massive, 76-date tour dubbed Live and In Person 2023.

Announced recently, the tour comes on the heels of the launch of a new permanent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame exhibit celebrating the singer/songwriter/pop culture icon, as well as the upcoming remastered reissue of his 1985 album, Scarecrow (click here for more on that).

A bit about that new Rock Hall exhibit:

Legends of Rock: John Mellencamp opened at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—a new, permanent part of the museum’s beloved and expanding Legends of Rock exhibit. Museum goers can expect to see artifacts including the suit worn in promotional photos for Mellencamp’s 2003 album Trouble No More, his 1976 Fender Telecaster Custom guitar played onstage extensively and the studio tracking chart for “Jack and Diane” from 1981, as well as an oil painting by Mellencamp himself, Backbone (2022), reworked from a 1993 self-portrait.
