John Mellencamp announces summer tour

John Mellencamp has announced a summer tour of North America.

The 10-date trek begins with a two-night stand at the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma on June 20 and 21, with shows scheduled to August 1.

Tickets for a Cheyenne, Wyoming show at Frontier Nights and the Winstar Casino are now on sale.

Orillia's Casino Rama tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 19 at 12 PM ET and the Atlantic City Borgata tickets will go on sale Friday, March 21 at 10 AM ET.

In December, Mellencamp revealed plans to work on his first new album since 2010’s “No Better Than This.”

“I've got a notebook with 85 new songs that I've written for my next record,” he told Rolling Stone. “T Bone Burnett is going to come out to Indiana sometime in early January and we're gonna go into the studio for however long it takes to make a new album. I haven't done one in five years."
