The Halifax concert was everything John Mellencamp fans wanted from the 80s icon of the American heartland
3,500 fans packed the Dartmouth Sportsplex to rock the night away with John Mellencamp on his No Better Than This Tour.
Halifax NS got a two-night stand on July 9th and 10th, 2012.
The fans who filled the arena both nights were an eclectic mix of country and city, bikers, insurance agents in disguise, mothers letting go for a night, couples reliving the 80s, aging boomers and the young. Except for a teen, who sat disinterestedly with her mother, the crowd loved Mellencamp.
He started hot and ended with chest pumping rock and roll, the lights up and everyone dancing to “Cherry Bomb.”
