Train, Luxor Cologne, 13.10.2017

After more than 23 years of band history, Train have already released their tenth studio album “A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat” this year. and have come to Germany with him for two exclusive concerts. In the sold-out Luxor in Cologne, they have thrilled their loyal fans with both old and new songs.

Without opening acts and without a long wait, Train put their entire energy into their songs right from the start. The dynamics of the band was constantly present and it has clearly noticed that here are old hands at work. All the band members were perfectly attuned to each other and everyone could prove his talent fully. In addition, Train has been able to watch the fun of making music in every single second.

Especially with their old songs like “Drops of Jupiter” the harmony and the energy of the band once again much clearer. The typical train sound was transported here fantastically over. The mixture of pop and rock and the voice of Patrick Monahan were accompanied by great instruments. However, highlights were the acoustic moments, during which Patrick Monahan sang without a microphone and caused goosebumps.
The newer songs came a little bit weaker, but unfortunately the band did not have that special something and their own sound. At times, people no longer felt like they were at a pop / rock concert, but rather like at a carnival or a hit party.
Nevertheless, the audience was fully engaged. Very lyrical and ambitious, the performance of Train has been repeatedly honored.

Train fans must have had this concert evening in the true sense of the word, because The band has given everything from beginning to end. Good music, good mood and a lot of harmony. The band also played the old songs in their old class, reminding them of the “good old days”. And even if the new songs are not really convincing anymore, it’s still fun to watch the music making way.

That’s what it sounds like;
