train jewel 2022 blues travelerHey soul sister, Get ready for a night filled with one hit song after another. Train has just announced the 2022 AM Gold Tour and they’re bringing Jewel and Blues Traveler with them to Jones Beach on Fri, June 10, 2022 - tix: special guest Thunderstorm Artis

“2022 is the year of the Tiger. It has begun in a strong, beautiful, and encouraging way and it’s only the beginning,” said Train lead singer Pat Monahan. ”The 2022 Summer AM Gold tour will be all those things and more, as we are joined by our dear friends Jewel and Blues Traveler! What a ride! We can’t wait to see you all out there, dancing and singing along to their amazing music as well as our new album, “AM Gold.” Is it June yet? See you then! Love and miss you all!”

As its title (and that artwork) implies, AM Gold is a throwback to a different era, calling to mind the “yacht rock” sounds of the 1970s’ and 1980s adult contemporary scene.. “AM Gold” will be Train’s 11th studio album. It’s set to be released on May 20 via Columbia Records. It’s the band’s first new album of all-new original music in five years.. “Writing songs for two and a half years in front of video screens instead of being in the presence of other humans has been a long, strange trip. And now here we are,” frontman Monahan says. “It has to start with love. Love that goes into work comes out of work. We love this song, this album, and our fans. Thank you for waiting so long for us.”

Although Train hasn’t released an album since 2017’s A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat, which reached No. 8 on the Billboard 200, the pandemic wasn’t entirely quiet for Pat Monahan. His Taylor Swift co-write “Babe,” originally turned into a top 10 Hot Country Songs hit by Sugarland, found its way onto Taylor Swift’s Billboard 200-topping album Red (Taylor’s Version) last year, marking the first official release of their songwriting collab with Swift singing lead. Additionally, 2021 saw Train celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s Grammy-winning radio smash “Drops of Jupiter,” with Monahan telling Billboard he didn’t expect it to hit as big as it did: “At the time I thought, ‘There’s no way people are going to like this song, it’s just too long.'” Clearly, sometimes it’s good to be wrong about your own songs.

Jewel Kilcher (born May 23, 1974) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, actress, and author. She has received four Grammy Award nominations and, as of 2021, has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Jewel was raised near Homer, Alaska, where she grew up singing and yodeling as a duo with her father, a local musician. At age fifteen, she received a partial scholarship at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, where she studied operatic voice. After graduating, she began writing and performing at clubs and coffeehouses in San Diego, California. Based on local media attention, she was offered a recording contract with Atlantic Records, which released her debut album, Pieces of You, in 1995; it went on to become one of the best-selling debut albums of all time, going 12-times platinum. The debut single from the album, "Who Will Save Your Soul", peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100; two others, "You Were Meant for Me" and "Foolish Games", reached number two on the Hot 100, and were listed on Billboard's 1997 year-end singles chart, as well as Billboard's 1998 year-end singles chart.

Blues Traveler (formerly known as "The Establishment" or "The Establishment Blues Band") is an American rock band that formed in Princeton, New Jersey in 1987. The band's music spans a variety of genres, including blues rock, psychedelic rock, folk rock, soul, and Southern rock. They are known for extensive use of segues in live performances, and were considered a key part of the re-emerging jam band scene of the 1990s, spearheading the H.O.R.D.E. touring music festival.. Currently, the group comprises singer and harmonica player John Popper, guitarist Chan Kinchla, drummer Brendan Hill, bassist Tad Kinchla, and keyboardist Ben Wilson. Tad Kinchla and Ben Wilson joined the band following the death of original bassist Bobby Sheehan in 1999.

Jewel has been in the headlines lately not just for being in "The Masked Singer" but also for her comment to Joe Rogan telling the controversial podcaster "You're doing a great job. Keep it up" and a subsequent post supporting her fellow Canadian Neil Young who pulled his music from Spotify in protest of COVID-19 disinformation from Rogan... “I’m so proud to know people of such conviction," Jewel wrote. "I hope we can embrace and encourage discourse between different viewpoints and use our right to protest for the things we believe… it’s what makes us great …” .. Blues Traveler's John Popper, for his part, has moved on from a 2007 weapons arrest and was fortunate to escape relatively unharmed after his bus crashed in August 2021.
