John Mellencamp to play Atlanticade

John Mellencamp is coming to play Atlanticade in Summerside - '50s pompadour and all.

Classic rocker John Mellencamp will be playing at the Atlanticade motorcycle festival this summer.

Atlanticade, one of the top rallies in the Maritimes, runs Canada Day weekend in Summerside, PEI. Mellencamp will play at the town’s arena on June 30, at 7:30 p.m., which will also be serving as the rally’s headquarters. The Cowboy Junkies will also be performing with Mellencamp.

Tickets go on sale to the public on this Friday (March 30), but they’re available Wednesday and Thursday to Atlanticade participants who are already registered. They’ll be contacted by email by tonight (Tuesday) with instructions as to how they can take advantage of this pre-sale.
