Bound For Glory: Exclusive Railroad Revival Tour Photos

April 25, 2011 | 12:35 PM | Art & Entertainment | By Staff

This past weekend, a standing-room-only crowd of 8,000 music lovers turned out to dance, drink and and sing along with their favorite bands at the Railroad Revival Tour in Tempe. (Some even watched from nearby rooftops.) All three acts, Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford and Sons gave incredible performances, and the night oozed of 1930’s nostalgia.

Although it was held in a parking lot, the show was a smash hit overflowing with a surprisingly electric and intimate energy. Whether whistling along to “Home” or clapping hands and stomping feet to the finale where all three bands played an extended version of  “This Train was Bound For Glory,” the night was filled with great people and great music.

Railroad Revival Tour Relocated to Tempe

April 6, 2011 | 7:06 AM | Art & Entertainment | By Staff

In news that will mean very little to anyone over the age of 25, the hispter-riffic Railroad Revival Tour has been bumped from its original location in Chandler to a larger venue in Tempe. In case you don’t fall into that age range (or don’t work in an office full of fresh-faced interns), the RRT is a kitschy-cool concert series featuring several up-and-coming acts traveling from city-to-city via a vintage passenger train. (Learn more here.)

However, AZ Central is now reporting that the AZ show on April 23, featuring Mumford & Sons (pictured), Edward Sharpe and Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show, has been moved  from a field overlooking Chandler’s charming Arizona Railroad Museum. Instead, the show will now be held in parking lot in Downtown Tempe. Much to the chagrin of everybody’s fav musical curmudgeon,the Phx New TimesMartin Cizmar. (Howdy, Martin.)

All Aboard The Railroad Revival Tour

One of the most unique concert tours in years, the Railroad Revival Tour will be chugging into Chandler on Saturday, April 23. The blogs and Twitter have been all aflutter over this one, so you know it’s going to be good. Featuring the newly famous (blame the Grammys) Mumford  & Sons, the eclectic Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show, all three bands are hitting the road rails in a caravan of vintage trains, all while filming a documentary immortalizing the tour.

Which sounds great and all, but have you ever been on a train? It’s bo-oring. So that should be a really riveting documentary. Starting in Oakland, CA  and winding down in New Orleans, the Chandler trainstop will take place at the Arizona Railway Museum (ghetto website alert!).  You can buy tickets here, and if you’re not quite convinced, we’ve included a live version of our favorite Edward Sharpe song below to derail (get it) any indecisiveness.  »READ MORE
