John Mellencamp will be hitting towns both small and large as part of a massive new 80-date tour in support of his forthcoming 'Plain Spoken' album. Shows begin this winter, and stretch well into the summer of 2015 -- and all tickets bought online or by phone will be paired with a free download.

Featured are a number of multi-night stops, including New York City, Nashville, Chicago, Toronto and Mellencamp's hometown of Bloomington, Ind. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will kick off and then end the tour in his home state, beginning in South Bend on Jan. 21 and then wrapping up in Indianapolis on Aug. 4.

Tickets go on sale Sept. 19 at the singer's website and here. (Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets starting next Tuesday.) 'Plain Spoken' is Mellencamp's first album since 'No Better Than This' four years ago.
