Train Plays Indy

Train performs at the Old National Centre (formerly the Murat Theatre) Wednesday, March 31 bringing rock to Indianapolis music this week. This American rock band have been in the charts since 1998, with no end in sight to their success. With an extremely solid following and a mellow sound, Train offers a fun and inspiring concert. Tickets to this Indianapolis event are $30.00. Train’s concert starts at 7:30 pm this Wednesday, March 31. . . don’t be late!

Formed in 1994, this San Francisco based rock group blasted on to the music scene with hit singles like “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me),” “Meet Virginia” and “Calling All Angels.” For more than fifteen years the band mates of Train, Pat Monahan on vocals, Jimmy Stafford on guitar and Scott Underwood on drums, have been composing and performing music across the United States. In 2006, after the release of their album For Me, It’s You the band took a three year hiatus. This concert tour marks their return to the music world. They are back, refreshed and ready to rock America as they prove once and for all their music will never die.

There new album, Save Me San Francisco, is the fifth of five studio releases for the group. It is a tribute to their origins and the staying power this trio has come to emit. The title song of the album shares their love for the Bay Area, as well as insight into their beginnings. Lead singer Pat Monahan explains, “Basically, this album is our way of paying tribute, giving thanks and also recognizing that we kind of need San Francisco to OK this band before anybody else does. Those were the best times of our lives–even though we didn’t know it–living in San Francisco and struggling to make the band work.”

Their hit single from the album, “Hey Soul Sister,” sprouted to the top of the charts and the radio airwaves in no time at all, a trait the members of Train have been able to employ in each previous album. The band has come a long way in just one and a half decades. From opening on national tours for acts like Barenaked Ladies, Hootie and the Blowfish and the Counting Crows to owning the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The success of their latest album and single is the first time in nine years, however, their song has topped the charts, marking their triumphant return to the mainstream.

Located near the Indianapolis cultural district, Mass Ave, the Old National Centre is neatly situated near dozens of yummy Indianapolis restaurants, perfect for a pre-concert bite to eat. After the concert, enjoy cocktails at any of the nearby Indianapolis bars.
