There’s less than a week to go until Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness returns to Manchester. And it’s going to be something special. With a sold out show and a new album as energetic as Zombies on Broadway, this is a gig that promises to be exciting, to say the least.

A number of tracks from Andrew’s latest release sound almost as if he wrote them with the live performance in mind.

The drumbeat of Fire Escape ensures that the crowd will be unable to resist dancing along to it. You can all but hear the audience joining in with the clapping section in Dead Man’s Dollar. And, of course, the powerful chorus of Island Radio is bound to encourage the whole room to participate in one hell of a sing-a-long.

I, for one, am more than hyped to hear these new songs live. And judging by the fact the show is sold out; I’m not the only one.

However, Andrew is a man with a wide discography to choose from.

With massively successful previous projects Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin, he has racked up an impressive number of hits. And if past shows are anything to go by, when it comes to selecting a set-list, Andrew isn’t the type of guy to leave his audience disappointed.

Be sure to expect Something Corporate classic I Woke Up In A Car and Jack’s Mannequin favourites such as Dark Blue and The Mixed Tape. Another thing to be sure of, these will go down just as well as when they were first released. Over a decade ago.

The venue. Deaf Institute, is big enough that there will be hundreds of voices screaming the lyrics along with Andrew, but not so big that the magic of what they are singing is lost along the way. Perfect for Zombies on Broadway and the stories it tells.

It’s sure to be a show to remember. But if you can’t be there, don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Watch this space for a review of the night and interview with Andrew himself.
