Train's Greatest Hits album and epic nationwide tour will celebrate 20 years of beloved music and hits. The album pulls together 16 fan-favorites like "Drops of Jupiter," "Calling All Angels," and "Hey Soul Sister" plus a special cover of one of front man Pat Monahan's favorite songs, George Michael's "Careless Whisper" - Train's version features world renowned saxophonist Kenny G. Train's music video for the cover features Sexy Sax Man and RIchard Karn (Home Improvement's Al Borlan).
Train's self-titled debut album, released by Columbia in 1998 was the start of their now accomplished career - the tumbling wordplay of "Meet Virginia" gave them their first unlikely radio hit and 2001's Drops Of Jupiter broke them to multi-platinum status thanks to the double GRAMMY award-winning title song that spent 10 months in the Top 40, and earned the Best Rock Song GRAMMY Award. The group won another GRAMMY award in 2011 for their global hit "Hey Soul Sister," the #1 best-selling smash and most downloaded single of 2010, from their multi-platinum album Save Me, San Francisco. Next was 2012's California 37, which launched the double-platinum hit "Drive By" reaching the Top 10 in over a dozen countries. They've sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, more than 30 million tracks, 14 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 with multiple platinum/gold citations, including 3 GRAMMY awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors. Train has gone on to receive eight Grammy nominations and has had 12 albums on the Billboard 200 album chart with their 2014 Bulletproof Picasso reaching No. 4 in 2012 and 2017's a girl a bottle a boat debuting at No. 8. Outside of music, Train partake in other ventures outside of music with their Drops of Jupiter® wine portfolio. Proceeds from the wine support Family House, a San Francisco charity that supports families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Train's 2016 project, Does Led Zeppelin II, a cover album in tribute of their favorite band saw 100% of the band's proceeds going to Family House.
