I enjoy this band soooooo much more than fun. I will definitely be in attendance. Here's hoping that there's more to come afterwards from these guys.

Steel Train was never meant to be a side project. It was a full-fledge band long before fun. came together. Personally, I am fans of both bands, but I think there is more quality music in Steel Train. I've been to my share of live shows for both bands, and Steel Train brings so much more to a show.

I couldn't agree more. Both are good but as we know, popularity does not equal quality. We all should have gone to the fun/steel train tour in 2011...

Fun. was the side band. Remember how in its early days, Jack didn't even do all the shows because he was busy with Steel Train? Clearly that shifted when fun. took off so hugely. The Steel Train/fun. tour was pretty awesome.

i think there should be a Steel Train/The Format tour...but that probably will never happen

Started listening to them just recently. They have some excellent tracks, but have yet to really grow on me.

Just got my ticket. Excited.

Got mine too!

Looks like they added a show at Maxwell's in Hoboken the night before, since the Bowery Ballroom show sold out so quickly. Glad they did this instead of moving to Terminal 5, which is what I thought was going to happen.
