Inbox Update: Railroad Revival Tour, Bruce Springsteen

Here are a few items of note to share...

2012 Railroad Revival Tour 'Early Bird Tickets' on sale now

Lineup featuring Willie Nelson, Band of Horses, Jamey Johnson, and John Reilly and Friends 

Railroad Revival Tour is proud to announce today that tickets are on sale for the 2012 American tour. For the second installment of the annual traveling music celebration, RRT has enlisted Willie Nelson & Family, Band of Horses, Jamey Johnson and John Reilly & Friends. Limited early bird discounted tickets are on sale now at and on the official sites of Willie Nelson, Band Of Horses and Jamey Johnson.

Railroad Revival Tour is an experience that transcends typical music tours and glorifies the historical romance between music and trains under the setting of the great American landscape. This one-of-a-kind U.S. train tour travels town to town aboard 16 vintage 1940s railcars, setting up open air pop-up concert venues in parks and fields adjacent to the railroad tracks where they stop. 

While the tour reminds us of times past, the ticketing process is unequivocally modern. Counter to standard practice, tickets are sold without service fees and fans are rewarded for early purchase with lower prices. Every ticket purchased includes a commemorative laminated boarding pass with an instant download of a four-song tour EP featuring music from each of the tour's artists. This EP includes "Knock Knock," the new single from Band Of Horses. Upgraded ticket packages are available offering collectables and benefits such as a limited edition poster from Nashville's legendary Hatch Show Print and a private viewing area at the venues.

In addition, ticket holders will be admitted to the Railroad Revival General Store, where new and classic albums from tour artists are available in digital, CD and vinyl format at steep discounts. "Big Easy Express," Emmet Malloy's documentary of the 2011 Railroad Revival Tour, is also available for purchase at a very special price. Ticket, film, music and merchandise sales are powered by Topspin Media, with marketing services provided by Topspin Creative Services.

The Railroad Revival Tour has a variety of hotel and ticket packages available on the site for Duluth, Old Town Spring, Tempe, San Pedro and Oakland as well. Visit for more information.
