Sturgis, SD (March 25, 2014) - The Sturgis Buffalo Chip announces that Train will unleash its feel-good hits on fans at the Buffalo Chip’s nine-day Motorcycle and Music Festival this summer. The radio-friendly group will headline the festival Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, capping off a day of military tributes during the Buffalo Chip’s annual Freedom Celebration. Train’s performance marks the first time fans will be able to see the GRAMMY-award-winning band perform in the Chip’s natural outdoor amphitheater during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
“Train’s hits span two decades. Their songs have such catchy hooks that it’s just impossible not to sing along,” says Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “I’m genuinely excited as I look forward to Train’s first performance at the Chip. Their concert performance will be a real highlight of a great party.”
Festival guests can expect to hear well-known Train hit songs like “Hey, Soul Sister,” “Drive By,” “Drops of Jupiter,” “Marry Me,” “50 Ways to Say Goodbye,” “Meet Virginia,” “Calling All Angels” and “Save Me, San Francisco.”
Train has delivered four Platinum-selling studio albums, earned eight GRAMMY nominations and won three GRAMMY awards since its formation in the mid ‘90s. Despite its major commercial success, the band remains humble and notes that its biggest pleasure comes from being able perform for its fans.
“The reward isn't money or hit songs, but is the gift of being able to create, perform and exist in a beautiful form of art that we were all so lucky to have been chosen for,” says Train frontman, Pat Monahan.
Train joins a nine-day lineup of national touring artists to take to the Chip’s main stage Aug. 1-9, including Zac Brown Band, Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Florida Georgia Line, John Mayall and many others. Over 30 bands will fill out the festival’s concert lineup, and the Buffalo Chip will announce the remaining acts throughout the coming months.
