Andrew McMahon and co. will be hitting the road this winter to honor the 10th anniversary of Everything In Transit, his debut solo effort that over the past year has slowly squirmed it’s way into my list of personal favorites.
One can only assume the record will be played from start to finish in it’s entirety (as McMahon hinted at in an interview with Billboard after a performance at Firefly this past summer).
The Boston date is Thursday, February 4th at the Royale. I for one can not and will not miss this show. We’re lucky Andrew was born in Concord, or else Boston may have fallen into the abyss of markets not being visited on this tour.
“I am pleased to announce, the Jack’s Mannequin band and I will be getting together for a handful of exclusive engagements to celebrate the album Everything in Transit. I will be the first to admit, I prefer keeping my focus in the present, but I cannot deny Transit’s place in my life and the lives of my fans. Even as I announce these 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. As I said so many years ago, this is a story, and it will be performed as such, in its original running order from start to finish. The band and I are truly excited by the opportunity to revisit this album and we hope to see you there.”
