More Info

Today, after an iconic 20+ years of music, Columbia Records Grammy-winning multi-platinum selling band Train officially releases their highly anticipated Greatest Hits album and simultaneously announces a legendary summer tour with co-headliners and Grammy-nominated rockers, the Goo Goo Dolls. The amphitheater tour will feature special guest Allen Stone and hit over 39 stops across North America. The outing, produced by Live Nation, kicks off June 7, 2019 in Auburn, WA and ends August 17, 2019 in Mansfield, MA. Fans will have a chance to witness Train’s extensive and critically-acclaimed catalog of hits over the last two decades.

Tour pre-sale starts Monday, November 12 at 12pm local time - fans can sign up to Train’s mailing list to receive the pre-sale code here. Tickets are on sale to the general public starting Friday, November 16 at 12pm local time at LiveNation.com.

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.

Goo Goo Dolls uphold an unbreakable connection to countless fans. Their influence has been fortified by a catalog replete with the unforgettable smashes "Name," "Iris," and "Slide, which were all included in the top 25 of Billboard's "Top 100 Pop Songs 1992–2012" chart, as well as numerous other hits such as “Black Balloon,” “So Alive” and many more. To date, they’ve sold 12 million albums worldwide, earned four GRAMMY® Award nominations, and made history by notching 14 Top 10 hits at Hot AC—"the most of any artist in history.” Notably, “Iris” dominated the Hot 100 Pop Chart at #1 for 18 straight weeks. Among eleven full-length records, A Boy Named Goo [1995] went double-platinum, Dizzy Up The Girl went quadruple-platinum, and Gutterflower [2002] and Let Love In [2006] both went gold as Something for the Rest of Us [2010] and Magnetic [2013] bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. 2016’s Boxes attracted the praise of People and Huffington Post as Noisey, Consequence of Sound, and more featured them. In 2017, the You Should Be Happy EP spawned another anthem in the form of “Use Me,” which quickly generated 3 million-plus Spotify streams. Their music has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Leona Lewis. Additionally, they’ve performed for millions at sold out shows around the world. That connection grows stronger in 2018 with the 20th anniversary tour celebrating Dizzy Up The Girl. Goo Goo Dolls will be releasing their brand new live album The Audience is That Way (The Rest of the Show) [Live], Vol. 2 on November 23rd, 2018 via Warner Bros. Records. The band is currently in the studio working on their 12th studio album.
Train: Pop-rock powerhouse - Train - has reemerged from years of decline with their hit single "Hey, Soul Sister" and are on tour. The single has sold five million digital copies and has made Train's comeback nothing short of monumental. The Grammy Award winners are currently on tour with Maroon 5 throughout 2011.

After bouncing around several cover bands, front-man Patrick Monahan packed his bags and headed from Erie, Pennsylvania to the Golden State. He met and teamed up with Rob Hotchkiss in San Francisco and soon recruited guitarist Jimmy Stafford, bassist Charlie Colin, and drummer Scott Underwood to form Train. Their initial efforts to secure a recording contract proved difficult and they were forced to self-produce and independently release their debut effort in 1996. Remarkably, without a contract, Train tour dates were booked on the opening stage for Barenaked Ladies, Hootie & The Blowfish, and the Counting Crows on their respective tours. Their self-titled debut featured the hit single "Meet Virginia" which peaked at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and secured Platinum status for the album.

Train was soon picked up by Columbia and headed to the studio to record the follow-up to their independent debut. The single and album - Drops of Jupiter - blew sales of their debut album out of the water. The single spent over a year on the charts, garnered Train a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song, and the album obtained double-Platinum status and remains their highest selling album to-date. Train tour dates were booked on the Drops of Jupiter Tour and they recorded a live DVD at their tour stop in San Francisco at the Warfield.

In 2003, Train returned with their third disc, My Private Nation, which featured the hit single "Calling All Angels". It became their third Platinum album and was nominated for two awards at the 2004 Grammy ceremonies. Train tour dates were scheduled on the international My Private Nation Tour. They recorded Alive at Last at tour stops in Atlanta and released it in 2004. Train then released the tepidly received For Me, It's You album in 2005. It debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 but quickly fell off the charts; Train subsequently went on hiatus and fell from public memory.

They returned in 2009 with "Hey, Soul Sister", the biggest single of their career and the biggest single of 2010 with five million digital copies sold in the US alone. The album, Save Me San Francisco, also featured the hit "Marry Me" and was certified Gold in the US. Train was awarded their third Grammy in 2011 for "Hey, Soul Sister" and scheduled their first co-headlining tour in over five years. Train tour dates will have the band traveling with Maroon 5 throughout 2011. In addition, Train concert performances are scheduled alongside Shakira for her South American international tour. Train surprised us with their return to the mainstream in 2009 and we are sure glad they did. Don't miss them when they come to your area.

Goo Goo Dolls: Not only were the Goo Goo Dolls an iconic alt rock band in the 90s, but their hit sound is also entertaining audiences on new albums and renowned tour dates. The Goo Goo Dolls entered the mainstream with their album, Dizzy Up the Girl, the singles from which became huge mainstays on the radio. After four years without releasing an album, the Goo Goo Dolls released Something for the Rest of Us in 2010, to the delight of fans around the world. The band is giving its fans even more Goo Goo Dolls this summer as they travel the US on 2011 tour dates.

Initially called The Sex Maggots, the Goo Goo Dolls was formed when friends George Tutuska and Robby Takac met John Rzeznik when he was playing in a band with Takac's cousin. Initially, Takac was the lead singer as Rzeznik was too shy and they released three albums before the widely noticed Superstar Car Wash in 1993. With the release of the album, Rzeznik officially became the lead singer and the band shed their metal/punk sound in exchange for an alt/college rock style. Unfortunately for drummer George Tutuska, he was replaced by Mike Malinin shortly before their 1995 record, A Boy Named Goo, was released. While the album's success paled in comparison to what the Goo Goo Dolls would soon experience, it did go double platinum and allowed the band to play extensive tour dates.

Dizzy Up the Girl became the Goo Goo Dolls breakthrough album and featured their earlier hit single and soundtrack contribution, "Iris." The album's singles topped the charts and experienced heavy rotation on the radio, the album itself eventually going triple platinum. The Goo Goo Dolls' next two albums -- Gutterflower and Let Love In -- experienced almost similar success as the band continued to dominate the alt rock scene. For the next few years, the Goo Goo Dolls played tour dates, on talk shows, and on soundtracks until the release of Something For the Rest of Us in 2010. John Rzeznik has stated that fans won't have to wait as long for another new album, as he is already working on new material.

In honor of their return to the public eye, the Goo Goo Dolls are headed out on 2011 US tour dates this summer, beginning at the Summer Celebration in Muskegon, MI on July 7. Their concert schedule will cover most of the country and will include a number of smaller music festival performances. The Goo Goo Dolls' summer tour dates in 2011 will end at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on August 27, so buy your tickets soon.

The Latest Headlines You Need To Know

  • Attorneys for a man who spent 14 years in prison before he was released after new evidence was revealed are working to get him money for his time spent behind bars. Clemente Aguirre was released in November and now attorneys have filed a petition to grant him status as a wrongfully incarcerated person so that he is eligible to receive money through the 'Victims of Wrongful Incarceration Compensation Act.'  Aguirre would get $50,000 for each year he wrongfully spent in prison, totaling more than $700,000.  The State Attorney's Office has received the petition. A response has not yet been submitted.  Aguirre’s nightmare began in June of 2004.  He was an undocumented immigrant from Honduras and working as a prep-chef in Heathrow.  Aguirre told investigators he had been drinking the night he walked into his Altamonte Springs neighbors’ home looking for a beer.  Instead, he found wheelchair-bound Carol Bareis and her daughter Cheryl Williams stabbed to death.  Aguirre said he ran out and did not call 911 because he was afraid of being deported.  Aguirre was arrested, convicted and sentenced to death.  The Innocence Project got involved in his case and helped clear him with DNA and new evidence that pointed to another possible suspect: Samantha Williams, the daughter and granddaughter, of the victims.  Williams has not been charged in the case.  Aguirre’s conviction was overturned and before a new trial could begin, prosecutors dropped the charges.  'I thank you for it from the bottom of my heart,' Aguirre said after the November hearing.  In a statement, Aguirre’s attorney Marie-Louise Samuels Parmer said: 'Mr. Aguirre experienced a living nightmare by spending 14+ years incarcerated for crimes that he did not commit. No one can give him back those 5,264 lost days and no amount of money can replace the moments that he lost with his family and friends, or cover over the horrors that he endured on death row. But the Florida Legislature has recognized that those who have been wrongfully incarcerated should be financially compensated. Mr. Aguirre is entitled to compensation under that statute, and his petition is just the next step on the path toward rebuilding his life.
  • In celebration of the Orlando Magic's 30th anniversary, the team distributed $1.2 million in grants Friday to 16 different organizations.

Magic CEO Alex Martins said the fundraising event patterned after successful wine festivals in other cities, could raise several million dollars.   Over the past 29 years, more than $24 million has been distributed to local nonprofit community organizations through the OMYF.   The DeVos family, which owns the Orlando Magic team, pays all the foundation’s administrative costs. The 2019 grant recipients and grants received:  Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida $30,000  Central Florida YMCA $30,000  Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida $30,000  Foundation for Orange County Public Schools $30,000  Advent Health Foundation/Hebni Nutrition Consultants $300,000*  The Gift of Swimming $30,000  Harbor House of Central Florida $30,000  Orlando Ballet $30,000  Orlando Repertory Theatre $30,000  Orlando Science Center/Early Learning Coalition of Osceola County $300,000*  Orlando Shakes (Orlando Shakespeare Theatre) $30,000  Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida/Grace Medical Home, Inc. $300,000*  Valencia College Foundation $30,000
  • After yet another day which featured no hints of progress in ending a funding fight that has to a partial government shutdown taking paychecks away from over 800,000 federal workers, President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday evening that he would make a ‘major announcement’ on Saturday about his push to get money to build a wall along the Mexican border, which has led to an ongoing standoff with Democrats in Congress. “I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown,” the President wrote on Twitter, giving no details about what he might announce. With no indications that Democrats in Congress are ready to give in on their opposition to a border wall, some Republicans have continued to urge the President to declare a ‘national emergency’ under existing laws, and move money around in the military’s budget to build a wall. I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown, tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M., live from the @WhiteHouse. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 18, 2019 “He ought to go ahead and declare an emergency, and it would be over,” said Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK). “I don’t know why he is reluctant to do that.” Inhofe – who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee – said Thursday that he would not oppose the President dipping into military construction funds to build the wall, though other Republicans have publicly opposed the idea. Democrats on Friday also pressed the Department of Homeland Security on another front – using eminent domain to take land away from landowners, in order to build the way – focusing on a case involving the Catholic Church in Texas, which owns land that the Trump Administration wants. “The federal government must exercise extreme caution when seizing private property,” wrote Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer to the Homeland Security Secretary. To @SecNielsen: The Trump Administration’s lawsuit against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brownsville, Texas, raises important questions on the exercise of eminent domain to build a border wall. We ask you to respond to these questions by January 31: pic.twitter.com/MXcfoQib9E — Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) January 18, 2019 The President has asked for $5.7 billion in border security money for both fencing and a wall; Democrats in Congress have offered $1.6 billion – the original requests of the Trump Administration and Republicans – but Democrats want none of that to go to the wall.
  • Two Florida fifth-graders are accused of plotting to kill an 11-year-old classmate and escape in a golf cart last month. The plot unraveled Dec. 14 at Roberts Elementary School in Tallahassee, where the alleged victim and the accused students, ages 10 and 11, all attend school. A 32-page police report obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat details the plot, which resulted in both students’ suspension and civil citations for conspiracy to commit battery and bringing weapons on school grounds.  The students are also being recommended for expulsion, the Democrat reported.  “This obviously is a very serious matter,” Leon County Superintendent Rocky Hanna said in a statement. “There is zero tolerance in our school system for violence or threats of violence. The individuals who participate in these types of behavior will suffer severe consequences, as (will) these two young boys.” The school’s principal, Kim McFarland, told investigators that the boys “planned and put into effect” a plot to kill their classmate, the Democrat reported.  >> Read more trending news According to the timeline laid out in the police report, one of the accused boys threatened the victim Dec. 10, telling him they would kill him. A few days later, a female classmate told the victim a secret and then went to the two suspected plotters and claimed the victim was spreading rumors about her.  The plotters again threatened the boy, saying they would “take care of him and kill him,” the Democrat reported.  Another student later told police investigators the boys drew a map of where on campus they would take the victim -- an area without security cameras, the newspaper reported. They ultimately changed their mind and planned to take the boy to the school’s garden instead, the police report said.  The day of the planned attack, one of the boys brought a backpack to school with what investigators believe was a murder kit: a wrench, adjustable clamp pliers, a multitool with a 3-inch blade on it and baseball batting gloves. According to police, the student showed the tools to classmates and one of the pair told them “snitches get stitches.” They also told at least one classmate they had the gloves so they would not leave fingerprints, the Democrat reported. They planned to use some of the tools to bust through a gate and flee on a golf cart.  During an after-school program on campus, the boys approached the alleged victim and asked if he wanted to go to the “secret hideout in the garden,” the police report said. He told investigators he refused because other students had told him the boys wanted to hurt him.  The alleged victim went to a teacher supervising the after-school program and told what the boys had planned, the newspaper reported. The boys were taken to the principal, who searched the backpack and found the tools, including the knife. The boys denied wanting to kill the victim, but admitted they planned to beat him up, the Democrat reported.  After the incident, McFarland sent parents an email, which was obtained by WCTV in Tallahassee. “Last Friday there was an incident, with alleged intent to harm a fellow student, that occurred in the afterschool program with a group of 5th grade students who had been developing a plan over a series of days,” McFarland said. “Some of you have reached out with concerns and questions. At this time, I cannot share details, but I can assure that your children are safe and the situation is being handled.” McFarland wrote that she met with the school’s fifth graders to discuss the importance of “see something, say something.”   “Many fifth grade students knew of the potential incident but did not tell teachers or their parents,” the principal said. “We discussed the importance of alerting adults when there is any concern for safety for themselves or their fellow students. Please discuss this with your children. It is imperative they learn this valuable skill now.”
