Folk icon Joan Baez has let slip details about a top secret John Mellencamp, Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson tour by asking the JACK & DIANE singer if the reports are true during a live show.
Baez spotted Mellencamp in the audience at a show in Bloomington, Indiana this week (ends20Mar09) and asked him, "Are you really going to go on tour with that guy?" prompting the rocker to announce plans for "a special tour" on his website on Thursday (19Mar09).
In his post, Mellencamp added, "(It's) slated to start in early July and run through the end of August. It will play at minor league baseball fields." He adds he'll be sharing top billing with two other major artists."
According to Dylan fansite BobLinks.com, Nelson will share the billing with Mellencamp and Dylan.
