Train Announces 45-Date ‘Play That Song Tour’

Train's "Play That Song" Video
Train unveils the video for their latest hit "Play That Song." Watch now.

Train a lot of grief from critics (we’re guilty too) for making radio-friendly pop/rock, but their longevity is seriously impressive. 16 years have passed since “Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me)” cracked the top 5 in 2001 and the band is still racking up hits. “Play That Song,” the lead single from 8th LP A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat (due January 27), is shaping up to be their latest smash. The sing-along track is hovering just outside the top 20 on iTunes and just cracked the top 10 at Adult Top 40 radio. Expect it to climb a lot higher than its current peak of 68 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Pat Monahan and the boys are supporting their latest, improbable comeback with a 45-date tour of North America. The Play That Song Tour kicks off on May 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada and then crisscrosses the continent, before winding up in George, Washington. Train will be supported by ’90s rockers O.A.R. and, somewhat surprisingly, British pop star Natasha Bedingfield. To be honest, I’d go just to hear “These Words” and then happily sit through the main act’s greatest hits. See all the dates below and buy your ticket here.
