Train rocked Araneta Coliseum last night, Dec 8, 2011 when they performed and entertained thousands of their fans with their rock music and remarkable voice. Train is composed of Patrick Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (guitar, vocals) and Scott Underwood (drums, percussion).

Angel and I were given a chance to watch Train perform live in Araneta (special thanks to Earth & Alex). We enjoyed Train’s performance from start to finish! Eventhough I am not familiar with most of the songs, I found myself swaying and dancing to all of their songs.
Train has made its mark on music history with their Grammy Award winning song “Drops of Jupiter (Tell me)” and chart-topping singles “Hey, Soul Sister”, “Marry Me”, “Meet Virginia” and “Calling all Angels”. Now, with their fifth album, Save Me, Save San Francisco, Train has channelled their early days, revisiting the roots of rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force.
Save Me, Save San Francisco pays homage to the Bay Area metropolis, San Francisco. It is an autobiographical account of Train’s beginnings and embodies the soul of Train as a band. The album taps into Train’s organic sound, recalling the blues and folk-infused rock that put the band on the map from the start.
The crowd was so hyper all night and Pat's interaction with the crowd made it more fun!
|Pat, went down to the crowd and held their cameras.|
|Handpicked Trainettes to sing and dance.|
|He let's the crowd see their facing while singing.|
|He was this close!|
The crowd rocked and cheered with Train’s fantastic voice and music and also enjoyed the giveaways by the band. Train will be coming back next year and will also release a new album, probably by the second quarter, so that’s something to watch out for.
