John Mellencap Live on The Early Show and CBS 2 Chicago - July 21, 2008



John Mellencamp kicks off a brief summer tour tonight (July 3rd) in Niagara Falls, New York at Seneca Niagara Casino. Mellencamp played a couple of warm-up gigs last month in Thackerville, Oklahoma, and — all told — will play a total of seven dates throughout the summer, mainly at casinos. In May, Mellencamp signed a “lifetime” recording deal with Republic Records via Universal Music Group and plans to release his next album — his 22nd — titled, Plain Spoken, sometime this fall. The terms of the new deal were not made public.
