Three-time Grammy-winning San Francisco band Train have today announced that they will be returning to the UK for a run of arena shows in March of 2015. This news follows the release of their 7th studio album ‘Bulletproof Picasso’ earlier this month. Train tickets are on-sale from 9am on Friday 26th September.
The award winning San Franciscans Train are known for delivering memorable songs that capture the listener’s imagination. This particular talent has seen them achieve unprecedented radio and social media traction, with the eight-time Grammy nominees heralded as a standard bearer of riveting, roots-based pop around the world. Train has sold more than ten million albums worldwide, thirty million tracks worldwide, with numerous platinum/gold citations on their mantle, 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors and nominations.
The band’s latest album and seventh studio effort, Bulletproof Picasso, was produced by Butch Walker. The disc has spawned two mega-hit singles, “Angel in Blue Jeans” and “Cadillac, Cadillac.” The former soared to the Top 15 of Triple A and Adult Top 40 radio in only a month, joining the band’s successful arsenal of other radio-embraced singles throughout their two-decade career. The song also has a badass Western-themed video starring Danny Trejo (Machete, Dusk Til Dawn) and Hannah Simone (New Girl) that has racked up over 2.5 million views.
2012’s California 37 spawned the hit “Drive By,” among other songs, a multi-platinum single that reached the Top Ten in 13 countries, adding to the prolific Train set-list which already includes multiple signature smashes such as their Grammy winning classic “Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me),” the chart-topping “Meet Virginia,” and “Calling All Angels.” The band snagged another Grammy in 2011 for their global smash “Hey Soul Sister,” (the #1 hit and biggest selling single of 2010) from their 2009 multi-platinum album, Save Me, San Francisco.
In 2011, Train also launched the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co. and Save Me, San Francisco Chocolate Co, which benefit Family House, a Bay Area nonprofit providing temporary housing to the families of seriously ill children being treated at University of California San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital.
