article imageReview: Train rocks Madison Square Garden, performs the classics Special

New York - On June 14, 2018, rock band Train performed at Madison Square Garden in New York City, as part of their co-headlining summer tour with Daryl Hall and John Oates.
Front-man Pat Monahan and the band kicked off their set with "Parachute," and it was followed by the mid-tempo "50 Ways to Say Goodbye," and "If It's Love."
They paid homage to Led Zeppelin with a cover of "Black Dog," and it was followed by "Meet Virginia," which resonated well with the New York audience.
After "Save Me, San Francisco," they immediately broke into "When I Look to the Sky," and the highlight performance of the night, the stunning love ballad, "Marry Me." Monahan began the song on acoustic guitar, in a solo fashion, thus showcasing his rich, velvet voice, and the band joined him. His delivery of "Marry Me" was utterly fantastic, and the only thing that would have made it even better would have been if Martina McBride joined him on stage for a duet. A journalist can dream.
Equally fun and upbeat was "Hey, Soul Sister," and the infectious "Play That Song," which got everybody on their feet. Monahan surprised the crowd with a soaring rendition of "Free Fallin'," where he tipped his hat to the late Tom Petty.
Monahan closed his set with "Drive By" and their signature tune, "Drops of Jupiter," which featured a gorgeous galactic backdrop on the televised screen.
