Many people say that they like all kinds of music, but few really appreciate the nuances of elevator muzak or the soulful hums of an all-kazoo funeral dirge. Soak up good tunes with this GrouponLive deal to see Train with Phillip Phillips at the Funshine Music Festival at Live Nation Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds. For $30, you get one G-Pass for reserved seating in sections 11–12 or 16–17 on Friday, May 3, at 7 p.m. (up to a $74.40 value, including all fees). Guests can enter the festival at 4 p.m. to catch other acts playing that day. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
The Grammy-winning trio Train freights a cargo of breezy melodies and poignant jams, satiating legions of fans on the California 37 tour. With intrinsically catchy beats and crossover appeal, Train's euphonic anthems bridge the gap between the hearts and brains of millions. Best known for Grammy-magnet singles such as “Hey, Soul Sister,” “Drops of Jupiter,” and “Calling All Angels,” Train’s grooves, combined with Patrick Monahan’s lilting vocals, stick in ears like relentless peanut butter. During the gripping live show, devotees can expect sing-alongs from Train’s catalog of smashes and cochleae candy from the band's latest album, California 37. Train even tickles diehard fans' other senses with its own wine and chocolate brand, the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co., which features song-based libations such as the Soul Sister pinot noir and the Drops of Jupiter red wine, fermented from astronaut tears.
Train—“Drops of Jupiter” (Acoustic)
Phillip Phillips was crowned American Idol's 11th-season champion, but his throaty voice and sweet-faced stage presence don’t exhaust the depths of his musical talent. Besides vocally connecting with the classics, Phillips is a folk-tinged songwriter in his own right and an accomplished guitarist to boot. In the months since his TV victory, the Georgia singer-songwriter’s career has already begun to eclipse his Idol success. Having completed a tour with Matchbox Twenty, Phillips now hits the road with Mayer to showcase his likeminded, heartfelt tracks from the hit album The World from the Side of the Moon.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
