Their first big hit was “Meet Virginia.” That was followed in 2001 by the massive single “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” – which won two Grammy Awards in ’02.

The “Drops of Jupiter” album was certified double-platinum by the RIAA and is the band’s best-selling album to date.

The group’s third studio album, 2003’s “My Private Nation,” contained the radio/TV hit “Calling All Angels.” Fun fact: The song has become the unofficial anthem of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

After a two-year hiatus, the band returned in 2009 with the gigantic “Save Me, San Francisco” album – which spawned three hits: “Hey, Soul Sister,” “If It’s Love,” and “Marry Me.”

Trivia tidbit: Train founded the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company in 2011. In a partnership with ACME Wine Movers, the business sells wine named after many of the band’s hits. A portion of the sales proceeds benefit the Family House of San Francisco, which supports families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Drink up and help out, folks!

The band’s May 14 set list featured 18 songs, including all their huge hits along with “Drink Up,” “If It’s Love,” “Valentine,” “Bruises,” “Drive By,” “You Better Believe,” and “Play That Song.”

They also performed a few covers, including Queen’s “Under Pressure” and Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al” (which they performed with opener O.A.R.) Come back soon, lads!
