This train was bound for glory
Technically, that's the city of Austin. But the Railroad Revival Tour pulled into New Orleans on Wednesday for the final show of its six-city tour. No official reviews yet, but reactions on twitter and around the net were rapturous. An epic ending to an amazing tour.
Jake Gyllenhaal revealed new talents, playing the trumpet and the drums onstage. Here he is playing the trumpet for the finale, "This Train Is Bound For Glory." (First glimpse around the 34-second mark.)
Some photos from Tuesday night in Austin. First up, the whole tour gang snapped a photo with the train as a backdrop. Jake is among the group - he's the one with someone on his shoulders!
He also took a photo backstage with a fan:
Hope to add pics and videos even from the New Orleans show as the day progresses.
Oh, yeah,Jake is an actor, too! With Source Code opening in Italy, here's an interview with Jake and Duncan, done for Italian TV:
