Andrew McMahon Announces Solo Tour

>> Andrew McMahon will be heading out on a solo tour in the spring.  All presale tickets go on sale tomorrow (Wednesday January 23rd) at 10am Local Time. The tour dates are listed below a statement from Andrew.

 The cool thing about the spring tour is we're going to have a chance to play a handful of these new songs from the EP that I'm getting ready to release. We'll also be able to play some of the best of the Something Corporate and Jack's catalogues for the first time together as one. So, I think it's going to be an exciting tour. You'll get a chance to see a little bit of everything...some new music, some old music…and you'll get to see it performed with enough guys to cover all the parts you hear on these records, which I'm really excited about.
