Powerful sounds and excellent showmanship made Train’s performance at the Jeep World Outside Festival a hit with the fans.
Performing their two biggest hits to date, “Meet Virginia” and “Drops of Jupiter,” as well as popular songs such as “I Am,” among other old favorites and brand new material, Train transcended the boundaries of what a live show can be.
Lead singer Pat Monohan energized the show with showy stage antics and killer vocals. The rest of the band awed the crowd with tight rhythms and rocking guitars.
Though every song was amazing, some of the biggest surprises of the night were the band’s covers of classic tunes. Oftentimes, covers of songs can be bland and mediocre compared to the music of the original artists, but Train did complete justice to Led Zeppelin’s “Ramble On” and Aerosmith’s “Dream On.” And the proof came when the crowd went absolutely wild after each song.
Train is a staple of today’s music scene, and they can give one mean show.
