Mellencamp Tells Cleveland Audience To ‘Shutup’
It doesn’t happen very often, but the other night, rocker John Mellencamp told his audience to “shutup”! During a show in Cleveland, Ohio, the rock legend told his audience, “…if I wanted to play in this type of drunken environment, I’d play outside or I’d play in an arena!”
According to an article in News.com.au, the language was even a bit more colorful! At 71 years old Mellencamp, it seems that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer just doesn’t have the temperament anymore! To be honest, some critics think he never had it. Luckily the audience settled down and the concert continued.
However, The Mike & Carla Morning Show wanted to know the last concert you went to that went “sideways”? Where the artist actually shouted back at the audience like Mellencamp. Or the person you went to see just walked off the stage?
“You Can Still Rock In America!”
Another perspective of this would be where the person you went to see in concert just didn’t live up to the hype. More of those calls and listeners texting in came in this morning. Those people that went to hear the “hits” only to be submitted to an artist going through a “phase” where they weren’t doing that.
Kenny Loggins, Madonna, Todd Rundgren and more all came up in conversation. So with all that said, who was it for you? That one concert that totally disappointed in some way, shape, or form?
Living in Las Vegas and with all the concerts and shows that come through town, there’s quite to choose from. Of course, it wasn’t always like that here. Heck, in the early 70s and through the 80s, there weren’t but only two or three places to see a concert here.
But think about it and let us know what concert it was for you…otherwise, listen to the segment and enjoy!
