Jimmy Eat World will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its classic Clarity by playing the album in its entirety for 10 one-time-only shows beginning February 23 in New York City and concluding March 7 in the band's native Arizona.

And you knoooow I got my tickets during the pre-sale this morning. February 25, 2009 at the Trocadero I will be seeing the greatest tour that I could ever dream up (OK, besides a Beatles reunion tour, but I am trying to be realistic). It is safe to say Clarity has been and always will be one of the most important albums I have heard in my entire life. Uhm, hi:

Every single song on that album has so much meaning to me, and so many people of our generation. The best thing in the world is when I meet someone and they KNOW why I have a tattoo that says Clarity. Jimmy Eat World fans, particularly from the Clarity days, are completely a part of something... they have brought so many of my friends and I closer together.
If Jimmy Eat World's Clarity is not in your Top 10 favorite albums (I am tempted to say Top 5...) then you are not leading a fulfilled life.
Since I found out about this tour all I can do is listen to Clarity. Do yourself a favor and watch, in awe, this video of a remix of 'A Sunday' that they filmed in one take in Japan...
