Steel Train announce tour with Fun

Fun

fun band steel train Nate Jack

New Jersey outfit Steel Train have been building up their fans for a big announcement over the past fews days. Finally, today the group came clean and stated they will be touring with Fun, the group Jack is/was a member of. Jack wrote and recorded part of their debut record and is technically still in the band, but does not tour with the group. This tour announcement comes with no surprise as Steel Train has been friends of Nate Ruess for years, having toured together multiple times when Nate was in The Format.

Fun also had a big announcement of their own as they recently made it official that they have signed to Fueled By Ramen. The 26 date national tour includes a special intimate The Bell House (Brooklyn) show, which is unfortunately "sold-out". Though Fun will play Webster Hall upon their return, Steel Train will be absent from that one date. Check out all of the tour dates here.
