Maroon 5, Train coming to Charlotte

Rock bands Maroon 5 and Train have teamed up to co-headline a summer tour that will stop at Charlotte's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on Tuesday, Aug. 2, according to a press release issued this week by the band's publicists.

Gavin DeGraw will open the show.

Live Nation, which runs the amphitheatre, has not officially announced the concert, so no on-sale date has been set yet for tickets.

Maroon 5's biggest recent hit was 2010's "Misery," while Train landed in the Top 40 twice last year (with "If It's Love" and "Marry Me"). Both groups have won multiple Grammys.

Well, that's a real problem. I'd pay to see Maroon5 but somebody'd have to pay me to see Train. I've seen karaoke performances of their songs that are better than they are live. They must really do nothing but auto-tune in the studio.

Jason, if you're looking for a tiebreaker, Gavin DeGraw is GREAT in concert.

i agree with Jason. i once saw this dude do Karaoke night at a local bowling alley. he did Train Drops of Jupiter, and did a superb job. i'd rather go sit and have a beer and listen to that, then pay outrageous ticket prices.
