Train On Track For Summer Tour

Train roars out of the station for three months of fun starting in mid-May.  Accompanied by special guests The Fray and Matt Nathanson, the band launches its “Picasso At The Wheel Summer Tour” in California in mid-May.

Train will be supporting its new album, Bulletproof Picasso.  The band says the LP’s title track is the new single and that a video featuring Emily Kinney from “The Walking Dead” and Reid Ewing from “Modern Family” will premiere on VEVO Jan. 23.

Fans will want to show up early for the Patcast Tailgate tent where Pat Monahan will periodically appear throughout the tour.  You’ll find the tent in venue parking lots.  Just follow the sounds of the classic rock DJ giving shout-outs to friends on Monahan’s weekly “Patcast” podcast, and providing chances to win various prizes.
