In March 2016 Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, guitars in hand, boarded a Los Angeles-bound train at Chicago’s Union Station looking to reconnect with the culture of railroad travel and the music it inspired. Winding along 2,728 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train paused to pick up passengers. On the Shine A Light Tour, they’ll be playing songs from the journey, along with favorites from their own back catalogues.

    Billy Bragg is a national treasure. (And yes, I know he’s British.)

    This is a great concept for a collaboration – and who doesn’t love a good train song? BB and JH are each great artists – I’d love to see them together.

    Because I haven’t seen Billy Bragg since before the other Clinton presidency, and he’s as sharp as ever.

    They call it the “Shine a Light Tour.” Is that the same tour the Rolling Stones did? I would love to see a show where they played all of their music originally and wrote it on a train. How Americana is THAT? That is as American as you can get! I know this music is gonna be great.
    I hope I can go. It sounds like a great time at the Alladin theater

    Nothing more romantic than trains…
    Would really love this!
