Andrew,
i was at the philly concert on sunday night. and it was fucking amazing. incredible. i loved every second of you guys on stage (but wish there were more!). i wasn't there for panic!. i didn't know plain white t's were going to be there until after i had the ticket. but i was there to see you. and i must say, you delivered far beyond my expectations.

i tried to listen to EIT but it pales in comparison to hearing you live. :D

<3 Cari

p.s. i especially loved the finale with you jumping on the piano. being the proud owner of the SOCO live at the ventura theatre dvd (and a computer with internet that frequently searches soco/jm pics)that i am, i was expecting this and got it all on tape :D.

chris

That's huge! Congrats!
Drove 4 hours from Ottawa to Toronto to catch you at the Panic! show. After getting a little lost on the way there, we finally made it just as you were starting your set. Awesome set. wish it could have been longer - like the last SoCo show in TO I went to. Can't wait for a Jack's headlining tour heading up to Toronto, Montreal, or even Ottawa.

Kelly

Please come back to Austin! Your show was the best.

I remember you writing in a previous blog about how you actually do read these comments. Whether you do or not, it doesn't matter but I wanted to leave a comment anyway.

I saw you play in September when you came to U of I in Champaign. It was definitely one of my favorite shows that I have ever been at. You are very talented and the other bands were amazing too. That being said, I find you inspirational, not just because of your cancer battle, but your music is very passionate and makes me want to write my own music, which I have recently begun to do.

Congratulations on raising so much money from the tour. I hope you are doing well and I can't wait to see you in concert again.

Happy Thanksgiving! ~Judy

Joe

That's awesome! And I can't wait for your next tour except for the fact that i live on the EAST coast...maybe i'll just have to move, haha.

Evelyn

HOLY SHIT! is right!! Wow, we did a great job, for a great cause. You're amazing, and it's so great to hear the Mannequins are doing well :) I wasn't able to go to the Sunrise show, cause it's was pretty far, and I don't have a car :( Which is why I'm RIDICULOSLY excited for the West Coast Winter TOur. It's gonna be off the chain !!!:) Haha. Can't wait!!

CONGRATULATIONS!

that is an insane amount of money that you raised!!

your show in toronto on the 16th was amazing! my friends and i definately went solely to see you :D

we can't wait for February!!!

Just wanted to let you know tonight was nothing short of what I expected...purely amazing. I'd bought tickets to the Palace show just for your act alone. I'm not really that close to Panic's music, but knew the money/driving was worth it if I finally got to see you! I also just about had a heart attack when I found out Plain White T's was playing cuz I'm a big fan of theirs too.

Anyways... thanks so much for tonight. You guys were AMAZING - set list was freaking fantasmic. And keep up your work with Music Saves Lives; I'm really proud of how far they've come. I'll have you know I sent in my swabs to join the bone marrow donor registry last week =)

TAKE CARE! And eat some pop rocks if you can, cuz those are just amazing.

Dayna

(Can you tell I have a slight affinity for the word amazing? Can't expect a better word!)

Mitch

Awesome news mate. Just saw a video of you a while ago on 'Your Total Health'. While I was on this website I was following the whole thing and now to look back at it again its amazing to see how far you've risen again and the work you have done.

Thankyou for your legendary work.

Brianna

Andrew,
You guys were amazing on the 19th in Philly. The set list couldn't have been better...my mom says 'thanks' for playing Rescued (it's her favorite). I loved your finale, jumping on the piano. It was so aweome. I wanted to find time to talk to you so badly, either during a sound check or after the show, but just didn't have time. That's okay, though. You're amazing and I'm happy I got to see you live again.

Congrats on all the money raised for Dear Jack. My grandpa died of cancer a few years ago and I think it's great that you're helping others so they won't have to suffer like he did.

Thank you for everything.

(P.S. - At your show on the 19th, my mom noticed your tattoos for the first time. She loves them. She's even trying to make my dad get one on his forearm..haha.)

Stephanie

That's amazing that you could raise that much money! I went to see you at UT and just saw you at the palace. It was amazing! Great set and I loved that you jumped on the piano!

Marky C.

mucho amore.

Almost everyday i say, "o my god, i can't wait to see jack's mannequin in dec!" I can't wait! I am so impressed with the amount of money you all raised and i hope you are proud! I have listened to the CD almost non-stop since i got it, and i love it more and more! anyway, i cant wait. I remember seeing jm back on the first tour in may in san diego and i had to leave after 3 songs because my stupid sister was sick. le sigh. it was amazing. at that show i think there were only 15-20 people and now there are thousands of fans everywhere. Keep up the goood work! p.s. Amy's frozen food rules!

jenny

wow, that's an insane amount of money! and for a great cause. keep up the great work! you guys were great in michigan last night

I just got home from the Panic show in Chicago. I must confess, even though I do like Panic, I was there to see && support Jack's Mannequin. You guys were amazing as usual and Andrew, you are looking better than ever. I had so much fun and I cannot wait until you guys come back to Chicago in February at the Riviera. Surprisingly, the last concert that I went to at the Riviera was none other than Something Corporate. I am extremely excited to see you guys in concert again.

Also, when you guys did the secret radio show in Chicago, I waited for 2 1/2 hours and let me tell you, it was totally worth it. Meeting the entire bad afterwards was a dream come true. I have met Andrew before; however, this time you were gracious enough to give me a hug. Which was sweet! lol Also, Bob and Jay were extremely nice and down to earth. Thanks for taking the time to meet with your fans and I can't wait for the next encounter.

See you at the next show.
A Fan For Life!!!,

First of all, Andrew without you none of this would have been possible!

So yesterday I'm walking through Express and I am cursing the fact that I am listening to Fergilicious or whatever, and then all of the sudden I hear the amazing sound of the piano intro to Dark Blue! I was walking through the store belting out the words and people were looking at me funny. I couldn't believe it! Hopefully those people have been educated and will go pick up a copy of Everything in Transit in the future.

The OSU show was great back in September. I skipped my anniversary date with my boyfriend to make it.

Hope to see you in Columbus again soon.

Katrina

Wow that's awesome
I'm so proud =)

Erin

AWWWW!!! The WEST coast?! The selfish Floridians want you back.....and by the way, congratulations on all the money you all raised!!!! Don't be thanking us either---it was YOU---YOU started the whole thing and it was your ideas that started everything rolling! .....but I have a random comment; I bet you could get even MORE money for your cause if the merch people stayed out longer....apparently when JM finished, they were already packing up....they said they only sold during the show.....wtf?! Why--and how-- would you leave an amazing show to search for the merch table? I was so sad.....I was actually REALLY looking forward to blowing all my saved-up allowance on t-shirts and whatever, and by the time I'd pushed my way outside, they were long gone.....NOOOOO! And now I have to resort to using technology to obtain one of your fancy shirts off of the internet.........oh well....you guys were AMAZING and I can't imagine how many people can be helped with the money you raised!! I never expected anywhere NEAR this much!!! You guys are great--keep it up!! You brought them one step closer to a cure!!!!

Meaghan

Congrats on everything!!!
I just wanted to say thank you to you!
Your music helped me get through a really hard break up over the past year and it would have been so much harder without your music. Thank You, Thank You for all taht you do! and keep it up!!

Love and Thanks,

Meaghan

Liz

And to think the power of music could bring all of us together for such a great cause. That's fantastic. It'd be nice if JM were to tour outside of the States once in awhile though. Notably Asia. And Europe, perhaps?

Thanks for bringing us together, Andrew. I am truly grateful for that day I heard Hurricane and fell instantly in love with your music. Keep it up!

Neil

I listened to your music on myspace and i gotta say i think you guys are AWESOME. i really think you have amazing talent and i hope andrew does listen to you, not even to help you out, just to listen to some very good music. Keep it up! i'm a musician myself as well, and i love listening to new types of stuff all the time.
