Jack's Mannequin Offer Pre-Sale Tickets for May Date at Marquee Theatre

Pre-sale tickets for Jack's Mannequin's Farther From Earth tour, slated to hit Tempe's Marquee Theatre on Saturday, May 23, are available on the band's Web site.

The pop-rock band, which started out as a side project of Something Corporate frontman Andrew McMahon and seemed to turn into the singer/pianist's main love, will be touring in support of 2008's super-melodic "The Glass Passenger," one of the better albums of last year, in my opinion.

After taking a hiatus from performing when McMahon was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2005, the band is back and better than ever. And McMahon has made a full recovery.

According to the band's MySpace page, everyone who purchases the pre-sale tickets, priced at $29, will be entered into a random drawing to win sidestage passes or a signed lithograph. Pre-sale tickets will be available at will call on the night of the show.
