Steel Train's set at Wakarusa Festival was destroyed by a tornado.
Message from the BandAt approximately 8:15 PM last night, Steel Train was supposed to take the stage at the Wakarusa Festival in Lawrence, KS (Flaming Lips, Ben Folds, Dr.Dog). As the band stepped on stage sirens went off and the emergency broadcasting system blared, telling people to evacuate the premisis immediately cuz a tornado was about to sweep through the area. The band left its equipment onstage, hopped in a transport van and was carried off to a hotel while the tornado ravaged the festival grounds.
