Matchbox Twenty, Train Set Tour Dates

Bands will be on road from July to September.

All-American pop-rockers Matchbox Twenty will kick off their run through the country with Train on July 31 in the North Dakota cowboy town of Fargo.

The 31-date trek will swing through the heartland and New England and make a quick stop in the South before turning westward. Dates run through a September 29 stop in Phoenix.

In the meantime, Matchbox Twenty will head overseas for a string of shows in the U.K. and Ireland with Bon Jovi. The band, which recently wrapped up an arena outing with Everclear and Lifehouse, is still riding high on the year-old Mad Season.
The San Francisco-based Train released their second album, Drops of
Jupiter,
in March, to the tune of #6 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The single “Drops of Jupiter” is at #21 on the magazine’s Hot 100 singles chart this week. Train are currently wrapping up a string of headlining dates.
