Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness announce acoustic tour

December 06 2017, 11:26 AM EST By Maggie Dickman


Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness have announced a special, acoustic "Pen and the Piano Tour." It's an acoustic eveing with McMahon, Allen Stone, Zac Clark and bob oxblood, formerly of Jack's Mannequin.

"I am both pleased and terrified to announce The Pen and the Piano Tour," McMahon writes. "I’m pleased because I’ll be boarding a bus with three dear friends, all gifted singer/songwriters to play six weeks of intimate shows around the United States. I’m terrified because I want this to be a totally unique concert experience, and the truth is I’m not exactly sure what that looks like yet."

The tour kicks off April 10 in Kansas City and wraps up May 24 in Denver, and based on his description, it sounds like it's going to be a truly one-of-a-kind evening.

"In my mind's eye, it’s equal parts VH1 Storytellers and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. A stage where I can perform and tell stories about the songs I’ve written over the last two decades and where my friends can perform and tell their stories, too," McMahon explains. "It will be weird and fun and honest. An exploration of the moments in between, that make a song worth writing."

Pre-sale tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. local time, using the code "PIANO," and general sale is on Friday at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets are available here.
