Train Will Stop, March 19
Train will perform at the Theatre at Westbury on Friday, March 19 at 8 p.m. with special guest Butch Walker and The Black Widows opening. Over the course of 15 years, Train has made its mark on music history with their Grammy- Award-winning song “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” and charttopping singles “Meet Virginia” and “Calling All Angels.” Since forming in San Francisco in 1994, the multiplatinum band has traveled a long, successful and sometimes arduous journey. Following their 2006 release, For Me, It’s You, the band took a three-year hiatus, and in that time, Train has, for all intents and purposes, experienced an epiphany as a whole. Now, with their fifth album, Save Me San Francisco, Train has channeled their early days, revisiting the roots rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force – and, in turn, the band is united stronger than ever before.
Save Me, San Francisco is the multi-platinum selling band’s fifth studio album and marks the restoration of Train’s original line-up - vocalist Pat Monahan, guitarist Jimmy Stafford and drummer Scott Underwood. Produced by Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, James Morrison, KT Tunstall), Save Me, San Francisco channels Train’s early days, revisiting the roots rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force. The album’s hit single, “Hey, Soul Sister” has just been certified RIAA Gold (selling 500,000 copies) and is currently #11 on the overall iTunes chart and #8 on the iTunes Pop chart. The track has been soaring up the Billboard charts, currently #2 on the AAA Radio chart and #4 on the Hot AC chart.
