Don’t call him ‘Cougar’: Mellencamp part of a big week at the Weidner
Next week is a big one at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, and here’s your reminder to get in on the action. Rocker John Mellencamp will bring his “No Better Than This” tour to the Weidner Tuesday (Nov. 15), kicking things off with a 7 p.m. film before the 8:20 p.m. concert. The hour-long documentary, It’s About You, was shot over the course of 2009’s Bob Dylan/Mellencamp/Willie Nelson tour of minor league baseball stadiums. It’s being screened before each show on the “No Better Than This” tour, which recently returned from a run of show dates in Europe. The Mellencamp show will be followed on Saturday (Nov. 19) by an appearance from TV’s “Cake Boss,” Buddy Valastro. His “The Bakin’ with the Boss” tour is an interactive experience featuring a live baking demonstration, stories and a Q & A with audience members. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and promises a pretty sweet way to spend a Saturday night. Tickets remain for both shows, so check out the details and buy online.
