The Mermaids of Alcatraz Tour was a concert tour by American pop-rock band Train. The tour is in support of the group's sixth studio album, California 37. The tour began on July 11, 2013 in Virginia Beach, Virginia and ended on August 14 in Auburn, Washington. The tour is presented by the band's Save Me, San Francisco Wine company. Gavin DeGraw, The Script, and Michael Franti and Spearhead have performed as opening acts. Country music singer Ashley Monroe also made appearances during Train's main set.

Background[edit]

The tour was first announced on January 31, 2013.[1] The tour was originally going to be additional dates of the California 37 Tour but the next day on February 1, it was announced that the name of the tour had been changed to the Mermaids of Alcatraz Tour because (they thought that would have a better chance to trend on Twitter).[2] More dates of the tour were announced on March 5, 2013.[3]

As part of the promotion, Train asked for concert-goers to dress up as mermaids and invited some to come on-stage for the group's "Mermaid" song.[4][5][6]
