Mellencamp took the music on the road with a band that many considered the best in the business, playing approximately 1,000 shows around the globe during the decade. In 1985, John’s concern for the plight of the American farmer, which had been voiced in the Scarecrow album, brought him together with Willie Nelson and Neil Young in launching Farm Aid. It became an annual event and has helped make people aware of the issues farmers face and how they affect on the entire nation.
John suffered a mild heart attack while touring in 1994 This forced him to take a break from his music career, but he returned strong in 1996 and released Mr. Happy Go Lucky, John continued to tour throughout 1999, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2006.
