Train has turned heads with the announcement of their 2015 summer tour. Promoting their newest album, Bulletproof Picasso, Train is set to kick off their Picasso at the Wheel tour which will start on May 21st in California. The band has scheduled 40 stops in some of the biggest cities in the country.
Train has been going strong for over 20 years. The group introduced their first album in 1993 and took a 3 year hiatus between 2006 and 2009. Since then, the band has released three albums: Save Me, San Francisco; California 37 and Bulletproof Picasso.
New songs from their latest album will be the major focal point of the set list.
Songs, such as Angel in Blue Jeans will definitely make the cut. With the album reaching #5 on the Billboard 200, it’s safe to say other songs, such as Bulletproof Picasso and Cadillac, Cadillac will make the list.
Classics are also expected to be on the list with the inclusion of: Drops of Jupiter and Hey Soul Sister among fan favorites.
While recent tours have been a little extravagant, the band has said that they want to keep things simple on the tour. What does this mean? We’ll soon find out as more information is released.
The Fray is one of the two opening acts that will also be on stage. More popular than Nathanson, fans will be familiar with many of the band’s songs. First heard in 2002, the band has 6 albums with the latest being Helios.
Powerful ballads and a piano are sure to be seen when the group hits the stage.
Songs that can be expected to make the group’s set list are: You Found Me and Break Your Plans.
Blending folk and rock, Nathanson is a rare talent that literally pulled himself into the spotlight over the years. Not a newcomer to music, Matt has been active since 1993 and is currently 41 years old.
Matt Nathanson is best known for his song Come On Get Higher. The song has reached platinum status.
Train’s Picasso at the Wheel tour is set to be one of the summer’s best. The band has kept ticket prices low with tickets going on sale between $38 and $95.
With two great opening acts set to hit the stage, Train is expected to have sellout crowds and one of their best tours in the last decade.
