All aboard one the of the most innovative music festivals of the decade! The Railroad Revival Tour is more than just a gimmicky money maker but rather a celebration of American traditions. The iconic train has long served as a symbol of progress, freedom and music. This tour acknowledges the connection between music and railways spanning back its creation in the Industrial Revolution.
Willie Nelson, Band of Horses, Jamey Johnson and Reilly & Friends serve as this train’s conductors. The well-crafted lineup is a perfect complement to the tour with Nelson’s legendary Texan sound and a crew of performances that feed off his home-town feel. On October 20, 2012, the whistle is blown and sixteen 1940s boxcars make their way through Memphis, Oklahoma City, Tempe and San Pedro before they arrive in Oakland, California.
The tour became an instant sensation in 2011 when the idea premiered across American railroads. After selling out shows across the good ol’ US of A, the tour is back again. Thousands of people crowd around the fairgrounds until hearing the train roar on in and surround them with music. With a fresh lineup and a restoration of American spirit, this tour is bound to be a success. Don’t miss your stop; check out the Railroad Revival tour today!
