John Mellancamp

April 27 John Mellencamp Music Hall, 1804 Capital Ave. 7 p.m., $44.50-$142.80 402.444.3353, or 800.745.3000, omahacivic.com There’s no guarantee that Meg Ryan, Mellencamp’s new love, will be there but the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Famer’s “No Better Than This” tour brings him back to Omaha. The 59-year-old also has a Grammy Award to his credit, and while he made his name with Heartland rock ‘n’ roll during the 1980s and ‘’90s, you can expect a more acoustic but no less fiery version of songs old and new. Under the direction of T-Bone Burnett, Mellencamp has moved into folk, which has only added to his growing credibility. Is this really the same guy who debuted as Johnny Cougar all those years ago? Yes, but since he went back to his given name, his career has been one of consistent artistic growth, and with the intimate Music Hall setting offered by this show, it promises to be a memorable one.
