Train frontman Pat Monahan will hit the road this fall on his first solo tour. The trek comes in support of his solo debut, "Last of Seven," due Sept. 18 via Columbia. Dates begin Oct. 4 in Phoenix.

Also included in the itinerary are appearances on "The Today Show" (Sept. 14), "The Tonight Show" (Oct. 2), "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show With Craig Ferguson" (Oct. 4) and the "CBS Early show" (Nov. 3).

As previously reported, "Last of Seven" finds Monahan collaborating with such artists as Brandi Carlile ("Pirate on the Run"), Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora ("Someday") and Graham Nash ("Cowboys and Indians").

"I'm a soul singer in a way that I'm projecting more on this record than on any other," Monahan told Billboard.com, adding that as soon as he started writing this particular batch of songs, he "realized I wasn't writing a Train record."
