Andrew McMahon announced the Three Pianos Tour with special guest Zac Clark. The tour will include a performance at the new Andrew J Brady ICON Music Center on Friday, October 22. In a statement on his Facebook page, McMahon said:
Never have I been more excited to announce a tour. The weirdness we are emerging from has left its mark on all of us and I have been dreaming of the day we could gather in rooms again and shake off its effects together. I will be traveling light this time, surrounded by a small group of friends, performing a set of songs that for me are like mile markers on the map of my life. I spent my time away from the world writing a book, trying to understand more fully who I am and where I came from. I can think of no better time than now, the anniversary of 20 years on tour, to assemble my work on a stage and do what I can to share that history with you through my songs and stories. Like my book, this tour will be called Three Pianos, and while I can’t bring all three of them on the road with me, I hope to channel the wonderful and bizarre affection I have for their place in my world. Any time I embark on some new and public adventure I am filled with fear of the unknown, but if I have learned anything from tours like The Pen and the Piano, from first leaps onto rubber ducks or out on to dance floors beneath parachutes, it is worth taking chances. I am crafting this show with the knowledge it may be the first many of you have attended in a very long time. That comes with pressure, but from that pressure I hope to make something cathartic and worthy of your trust in me. The lights are coming back on, let's sing together beneath them.
