John Mellencamp at State Fair Main Stage

August, 04 2017

Wisconsin State Fair - Main Stage - 640 S 84th St - West Allis, WI

Event Description:
Grammy award winning John Mellencamp will headline the Main Stage at the 2017 Wisconsin State Fair on Friday, August 4th!

Mellencamp’s passion for music started at a young age, and his career in music, spanning more than 35 years, has seen him transition from pop star to one of the most highly respected singer/songwriters of a generation. Mellencamp released his first album, The Chestnut Street Incident, in 1976, but rose to stardom with the 1979 hit “I Need a Lover” from the album American Fool, which became the year’s best-selling album.

Known early in his career as John Cougar, he gained fame and climbed the charts with singles like “Jack & Diane” and “Hurts So Good.” He made name for himself while playing more than 1,000 shows in a decade, and eventually transitioned back to his birth name, John Mellencamp. After a brief hiatus in the early ‘90s, he found his way back into the world of rock ‘n roll, and by the early 2000s, released hits like “I’m Not Running Anymore,” “Peaceful World” and “Your Life is Now.”

Tickets for John Mellencamp will be $59 and $49 and will go ON SALE on Friday, Feb. 24 at 9 a.m. at and the State Fair Ticket Office. TAll Main Stage tickets INCLUDE FAIR ADMISSION when purchased prior to entering the Fair Park.

The Wisconsin State Fair will be held Thursday, August 3 - Sunday, August 13, 2017. With 30 FREE entertainment stages, exciting rides & games, thousands of animals and culinary magic, the State Fair offers a unique experience to all who attend.
