U.S. rock outfit Train will start a European tour this weekend in the U.K., where an extensive campaign is planned to back "She's on Fire," the new single from the group's Columbia album, "Drops of Jupiter." Along with being certified double-platinum for U.S. sales of 2 million copies by the Recording Industry Association of America, the album is also gold in Britain (100,000 units).
The dates begin Sunday (Jan. 13) at Manchester University, moving on to Glasgow's Barrowlands (Jan. 14) and London's Shepherd's Bush Empire (Jan. 15). The U.K. visit ends two days later with a special concert at the BBC Radio Theatre, which will be recorded for future broadcast. The tour wraps Jan. 29 in Paris.
Due Jan. 28 as a U.K. single, "She's on Fire" is the follow-up to "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)," which reached No. 10 in the region in August. The track is up for five honors at the 44th annual Grammy Awards, including record and song of the year. It jumped 42-29 in its 44th week on The Billboard Hot 100 last week.
