Apparently, it’s just a short Train ride from Tanglewood to SPAC.

Way back in November, San Francisco popsters Train announced that they would be arriving at Tanglewood in Lenox on Monday, August 8. And now, they’ve finally announced that they’ll also be rumbling into the Saratoga Performing Arts Center the following night, Tuesday, August 9.

According to Train’s website, they’ll be sharing the bill with Maroon 5 and Gavin Degraw.

There’s no official announcement about the show from the Live Nation folks yet, but as soon as we hear, we’ll update with full details regarding ticket prices and on-sale date…

“Wow, I don’t know.

I have a feeling that it was probably an Al DiMeola album because my mom really liked it, too. I think that the album was called ‘Sequencer’ or something like that.

Yeah, my mom and I kind of bought that one together.”

Drummer (and Saratoga Springs native) Scott Underwood and the rest rest of his bandmates in Train pull into Northern Lights in Clifton Park on Wednesday (November 11).
