Charleston, S.C. (WCIV) -- The musician who painted the lyrics to "Pink Houses" will rock the North Charleston Performing Arts Center this fall.

John Mellencamp's camp has announced he will play November 9th, with tickets going on sale Friday August 5th.

Previously known as John Cougar and John Cougar Mellencamp, the singer songwriter is known for his acoustic, American rock sound. His hits include, "Hurt So Good", "Jack and Diane", "Small Town", "I Need a Lover", and "Cherry Bomb".
