The Third Annual Dear Jack Benefit, (which will also be Jack’s Mannequin’s final show) which raises money for young adult cancers, sold out in five minutes when tickets went on sale last Saturday. This charity was founded by Jack’s Mannequin and former Something Corporate frontman Andrew McMahon, is especially close to his heart after being diagnosed with leukemia at age 22, and is thankfully in remission.
A second show has been added after the record sell-out, and to make it possible for fans to buy tickets at affordable prices from the authorized ticketing dealers and not from scalpers. In addition, tickets will be will-call only to deter scalpers.
The final Jack’s Mannequin, and Third Annual Dear Jack Benefit shows are:
Sunday November 11th @ El Rey
Monday November 12th @ El Rey
