John Mellencamp is launching a huge, five-month, Live and In Person Tour. It’ll start and end in Indiana, his home state. But in between, he’ll hit a number of major cities.

Mellencamp announced the tour Thursday night during an appearance at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. There’s an exhibit at the hall called “Legends of Rock: John Mellencamp.” There are cool items on display, including the studio tracking chart for “Jack & Diane” and the Fender Telecaster Custom guitar from 1976.

Mellencamp is remixing one of his top albums. That’s “Scarecrow,” which he released in 1985 as his eighth studio album. The album produced three John Mellencamp classics — “R.O.C.K in the USA,” “Small Town” and “Lonely Ol Night.” All three hit the top 10, with Lonely Ol Night peaked at No. 1 on the mainstream rock charts.

He’ll rerelease this deluxe album, Nov. 4. Meanwhile, if you want to buy a concert ticket, here are the key dates. Starting on Oct. 4, you can buy a ticket if you’re a member of Mellencamp’s mailing list or if you subscribe to the Turner Classic Movie newsletter. Also, if you have a Citi-issued credit card you also qualify for this earlier ticket buying opportunity,

Then on Oct. 7, tickets go on sale to the general public. Coincidentally, that’s the day John Mellencamp turns 71. It’s a nice way to celebrate.
