Gallery: John Mellencamp at Brady Theater


On Sat. March 6th, "The John Mellencamp Show" made it's way to the Brady Theater for a sold out crowd featuring a catalog with over 20 studio albums and dozens of hit songs. Mellencamp's shows consist of an hour-and-50 minute set heavy on classics and fan favorites and performs alongside a seven-piece band in attire inspired by early 20th-century vaudeville. On stage with John was the Woody Guthrie award he received last year here in Tulsa. The annual prize is given to an artist who best exemplifies the spirit and life work of Woody Guthrie by speaking for the less fortunate and serving as a positive force for social change. He is the fifth recipient.
