The 2017 summer at Forest Hills is shaping up to be one for the books, and it got even better as John Mellencamp announced that he would be coming to the famed Queens, NY venue.
Coming through Forest Hills on July 11 as part of his just-revealed Sad Clowns and Hillbillies 2017 summer tour, Mellencamp will be accompanied by 13-time Grammy winner Emmylou Harris and Carlene Carter. A tireless performer, the Sad Clowns and Hillbillies tour follows Mellencamp’s highly successful Plain Spoken Tour and comes in support of his 23rd full-length album of the same name. A press release says the new album, “showcases a poet who has wisely used the years between youth and the present day to become an absolute master of songwriting and interpretation.” Sad Clowns and Hillbillies is out April 21, and every ticket sold comes with a physical CD of the LP. With the addition of Mellencamp, Forest Hills adds another legendary performer to a must-see summer lineup.
Tickets for John Mellencamp and Emmylou Harris at Forest Hills go on sale on Friday, Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. EST right here on AXS.
