Looks like all the chad-challenged dimwit dumbrats in FL couldn't figure out where to buy tickets. I'm sure they would want to help Johnny boy and his whiny liberal anti-American cause. Karl Rove must be behind this attempt to disenfranchise these poor dumbrat Floridians! It's a conspiracy!

The other day while scanning for a station on the radio dial-I think I found air america. It was such a culture shock for me, I instinctively changed the station just as I do when I hit a spanish channel. Except this time it gave me the heebee jeebies.

Well, you're either for capitalism or you're agin it. The socialists always have such a disconnect you would think they would give themselves a black eye just trying to strum their guitar or getting too close to the mike.

Miami is outside of the areas affected by the hurricane. It's laughable to see them blame low ticket sales on it. One of the things people in a hurricane affected area want that you didn't mention is a return to normal life. A concert would sell tickets better under these circumstances, provided it was something people wanted to see.

I don't know if this is the same concert series - with Dave Matthews also? Anyway, my son who is at UF in Gainesville said that only US Citizens of voting age will be allowed in the concert. A friend of his who is not a US citizen tried to get tickets and was turned away. Apparently they couldn't find enough "citizens" to attend in Miami! lol!

Too bad they aren't this stringent when registering voters.

Miami is outside of the areas affected by the hurricane.

South Florida has been hit by both Charlie and Francis. My son and I had been scheduled for 3 weeks work in that area but it has been postponed indefinitely due to the storms. Here in NW Florida no one has any interests in concerts but people are offering bounties for insurance claims adjusters. It's all a matter of priorities.

I guess they didn't want to hear him whine "Small town" a couple hundred times. Understandable. South Beach might have been the place for his "Pink Houses" schtick.

Note: John Mellencamp and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds have added a Chicago date to their leg of the Vote for Change tour. Mellencamp and Edmonds will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Riviera Theatre, Racine at Broadway and Lawrence. Tickets are $57 and may be purchased through www.mellencamp.com. Ticket buyers must be 18 years old and a registered U.S. citizen.

The Saturday October 9th show was added, while the Friday October 8th show in Miami was cancelled. Coincidence?

$57?? and you have to be a registered U.S. citizen to buy tickets??

That is beautiful. From mellencamp.com:

"Due to the federal regulations of John's involvement with Vote for Change, you must be at least 18 years of age and a registered U.S. Citizen to purchase tickets to these shows. If you elect to purchase tickets to the Vote for Change tour, you are making a financial contribution to ACT."

Yes, it was a wonderful movie. One to own and view every now and then. Why can't we have more movies like that? Maybe because the entertainers are too busy making political statements rather than searching out good scripts with wholesome, moral values?? Just a guess on my part.

It grieves me that John Mellencamp has gotten into liberal politics. He used to be one of my favorites. He has deteriorated over the last 10 years or so. To paraphrase one of his own songs he should "forget all about that pinko _____ and learn how to play guitar."

Some leftists, politics aside, are pretty damn talented.

My sister and I are both big fans of the Dave Matthews Band. So one night, I was complaining about all the political crap that's come out of his mouth. Her reply was:

"I don't listen to DMB for their politics."

CMT (Country Music Television) has been trying to resurrect Mellencamp's career the past two years. CMT has done that with a number of rock stars whose career had slided, CMT given them video time -- then you find out they're vocal leftists. Sheryl Crowe, Jimmy Buffett. CMT even gave Linda Ronstadt some air time right after the controversy about her Las Vegas appearance.

I'm SOOOOO glad I canceled my cable.
