This weekend we had the opportunity to enjoy a mini-vacation in St. Augustine with the intention of seeing a concert at the Amphitheater. When it comes to attending concerts, LB and I have spent the last few years making up for lost time. Our first concert experience together was Toby Keith in 2011. Since then we have attended more concerts than you can imagine. Some may think we are crazy, but we always have a fun time.
Since parking has become ridiculous, we decided to walk to the venue from our hotel.
The subject of our concert quest was a long time entertainer and a remarkably talented singer/song writer. At age 66 the man still has GREAT hair and a lot of spirit.
There he was… a 1980’s teenage dream… John Mellencamp… live on stage.
You may remember him as John Cougar Mellencamp. He was dubbed Johnny Cougar by his manager in 1976 for fear that nobody would buy a record from someone named Mellencamp.
The 80’s brought a change for him after the release of his fifth album in 1982 “American Fool” as the albums that followed were released under the name John Cougar Mellencamp.
Saturday night we had the opportunity to hear him sing some of his greatest hits such as “Jack & Diane,” “Pink Houses,” “Small Town,” “Rain On The Scarecrow,”
“The Authority Song”
