Here’s something I’ve been waiting for all year- Jack’s Mannequin is reuniting for a quick tour across the country to celebrate the band’s first, and almost universally agreed best, album’s 10th anniversary.
Although Everything in Transit officially turned a decade old in August, Andrew McMahon, lead singer of Jack’s, has been touring with his newest band, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness for the past few months.
In the note (it really is a glorified press release) that McMahon released this morning, he admits that “I prefer keeping my focus in the present, but I cannot deny Transit’s place in my life and the lives of my fans.”
The album’s release in 2005 coincided with McMahon’s leukemia diagnosis, which he eventually recovered from.
Despite the obvious demand for this tour, the band will only be playing ten shows.
“I know there will be disappointment over the fact this will not be a full tour. To those of you in markets we are not playing, please know we picked the routing that allowed us to play the most shows in the short time that was available.”
For us at IU, the closest show will be in Columbus, OH. See ya there!
