Multi-Platinum-Selling Band Sits Down for Intimate Conversation and Performance,
Benefitting The GRAMMY Museum® and The GRAMMY Foundation®

LOS ANGELES (June 2010) - On July 19, 2010, The GRAMMY Museum® will host GRAMMY-winning and multi-platinum-selling band Train for an onstage interview and performance, it was announced today.  All proceeds from the event will benefit The GRAMMY Museum® and The GRAMMY Foundation®.

Over the course of 15 years, Train has made its mark on music history with their GRAMMY-winning song \"Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)\" and chart-topping singles \"Meet Virginia\" and \"Calling All Angels.\" Since forming in San Francisco in 1994, the group has traveled a long, successful and sometimes arduous journey. Following their 2006 release, For Me, It's You, the band took a three-year hiatus, and in that time, Train has, for all intents and purposes, experienced an epiphany as a whole. Now, with their fifth album, Save Me, San Francisco, which features their worldwide smash hit single \"Hey Soul Sister,\" Train has channeled their early days, revisiting the roots rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force - and, in turn, the band is united stronger than ever before.  For more information on Train, fans can go to: trainline.com.

Before an intimate audience of 200, hear Train in conversation about their successful career, musical influences, and most recent album.  After the interview (conducted by Scott Goldman, Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares), Train will take questions from the audience, perform a few of their greatest hits acoustically, and conduct a meet-and-greet with fans. 

The GRAMMY Museum® launched its flagship public program, \"An Evening With...,\" in January 2009 with music legend Brian Wilson and continued its success with critically-acclaimed recording artists such as Ringo Starr, Annie Lennox, Tom Morello, Carly Simon, and Herbie Hancock.  The program regularly features award-winning and cutting-edge musicians live and onstage.  Taking place in the Museum's state-of-the-art theatre, which screens exhibit-related films during regular Museum hours, the program provides guests unprecedented access to their favorite musicians. 

\"American Express Presents An Evening With Train\" will take place at 8pm in the GRAMMY Sound Stage, on the second floor of The GRAMMY Museum® .  Doors open at 7:30pm.  American Express presale tickets are $35 and can be purchased on Ticketmaster.com.  Ticket purchase also includes a copy of the album, Save Me, San Francisco.  American Express is the exclusive payment method for presale tickets.  All proceeds benefit The GRAMMY Museum® and The GRAMMY Foundation®.  For more information, please visit grammymuseum.org.
