Train headed to Melbourne on Saturday night and Mandy Hall was there to bring us these photos...
Train were announced to be returning to Australia in June last month with their brand new record, California 37, in tow. As we get ever close to the mid-year mark, the hype for the San Franciscans is beginning to generate. Scott Underwood, the band's drummer, chats with me about the upcoming tour and why he feels that the band are currently at their best right now.
Multi-award winners Train have announced a series of Australian shows ahead of the release of their sixth studio album, California 37. Kicking off with a show at the Sydney Opera House, the band will be continuing through to Melbourne and Brisbane for two more shows to showcase their new material, as well as their hits. Joining Train on the tour will be San Francisco musician Matt Nathanson.
Tickets go onsale Monday, April 23.
