Railroad Revival Tour

Fans react in screams as the bands perform for the Railroad Revival Tour on Thursday, April 21, 2011 at Middle Shoreline Harbor Park in the Prescott-Oakland Point Neighborhood.

Neo-psychedelic pop-rockers Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Nashville string-band opened for the English folk-rock band Mumford & Sons.

Videos on YouTube capture segments of the show, here.

The Port of Oakland's Middle Harbor Park located in the Prescott-Oakland Point was the first stop of six cities traveling by train, from the Bay to New Orleans.

The uniqueness of Middle Harbor Park proved to be one of the few spots in the Bay Area that met the tour's criteria of being big enough to hold a major festival and near usable train tracks with the ability to park the 13-car train right at the venue being part of show.

For this show, the Railroad Revival Tour was able to sell 8,000 tickets in 4 hours.
