This past Sunday, Train made a stop in West Palm on their Picasso At The Wheel tour and it was everything you would expect from them. Joined by Indie folk artist Matt Nathanson, the self proclaimed “fluffer” for the evening, he got the party going. With hits “Come on Get Higher”, “All We Are”, Matt was there to “fluff” the crowd, and he definitely did his job well.
Isaac Slade, Joe King and the rest of the members of The Fray followed up Matt and the crowd was ready. The Multi-Platinum selling band had the audience on their feet dancing, clapping, singing and just having a damn good time. The hits which made them a household name “Over My Head (cable car)”,”How to Save a Life”, ”You Found Me” filled the air and the audience was more than happy to sing along on backing vocals. It was a beautiful night, and a packed amphitheater, which was the perfect recipe for a good night of music.
A little after 9, Train took the stage and the celebration of fun continued. Singer Pat Monahan, and guitarist Jimmy Stafford led the rest of the band in a fun paced set list that didn’t see one body in their seats. The multiple platinum selling band went through their hits “Drops of Jupiter”, “Meet Virginia”, “Hey Soul Sister” to name a few and pulled something from every album as well as their latest release, Bulletproof Picasso.
Pat is well loved by the crowd and especially the ladies, he sings to the crowd as if he was serenating a beautiful lady on a beach. The appreciation Pat has for his fans, came through when on the third song, he decided to hop on the speakers in the front of the stage, and started taking selfies with the fans phones, and encouraged them to come forward. He did this several dozens of times from one side of the stage to the other. The fans loved it, he loves them and they are a good time band that is worth an hour and a half of your time.
It was a great lineup with 3 fantastically talented artists, in which I understand that Isaac (The Fray) and Matt Nathanson joined Pat and Train on stage to spoil the crowd with a Beatles tune. It was a great night filled with great artists, which equated to a great time. Always support live music!
