John Mellencamp has announced that his new documentary, The Good Samaritan Tour 2000, will stream on Turner Classic Movie’s (TCM) YouTube channel August 27th with Mellencamp appearing as a guest programmer on the network in September.
Narrated by actor Matthew McConaughey, the film chronicles Mellencamp’s 2000 tour in which he performed for free in public parks and common spaces across the country.
In addition to the film, there is also a companion album. It contains 12 songs, including "Small Town," "Pink Houses" and covers of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" and The Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man" and "The Spider and the Fly."
It's available now to pre-order on CD, vinyl and digitally. And, like the film, it will also be out on August 27th.
