Train, The Fray Bring Night of Hits To Big Bangor Crowd [PHOTOS]
Train brought its "Picasso at the Wheel" tour to Bangor Thursday night for thousands of fans at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion.
The San Francisco-based band started its set under clear skies to the stage with "Just a Memory," a new song off of their most recent album, "Bulletproof Picasso."
Throughout the show, lead singer Patrick Monahan interacted with the audience, asking them to sing along with him, bringing a group of local kids from the audience on stage to dance, and throwing beach balls into the crowd.
The Grammy-winning band didn't disappoint its longtime fans, performing some of its biggest hits including "Save Me, San Francisco," "Marry Me," "Hey, Soul Sister," and its 1998 breakout single, "Meet Virginia." Among its impressive catalog of chart toppers, the band also played some new material from the new album including "Angel in Blue Jeans" and "Give It All."
Train closed its final set with the huge 2012 hit "Drive By" and were almost immediately brought back to the stage for an encore, in which they performed the title track off their new album, a cover of Aerosmith's "Dream On," and ended the night with their 2001 hit "Drops of Jupiter."
Before Train took to the stage, The Fray kicked off the show under the early evening sun and performed some of their biggest hits such as "Over My Head (Cable Car)," and "How to Save a Life."
The bands won't have long to rest after its Bangor show. The tour's next stop is in Saratoga Springs, New York on Friday.
