I am planning on attending the Sept 29th show in LA at the Nokia theatre.
Was planning on proposing to my girlfriend there at the concert during the "Marry Me" song when Pat walks around in the crowd and sings to everyone. Was hoping to arrange having Pat stop at the seats where we are sitting to do the proposal in front of the entire crowd. Just wondering if anyone has any input on how I could get the band on board with this type of request. Any suggestions?
Tweet (@train) to them...
Ill try that. Do you know if they answer you back directly?
I'm new to twitter. First time user. Any tips? Just signed up for an account. I'm a newbie :-)
Ummm, try not to be obssessive, that doesn't work... trust me :P. But, they normally answer stuff like that. If they don't, send them a direct message. Oh, Jimmy (@jammalama) normally answers so if you can't get through to them at the band file, tweet him. If that doesn't work... I'll try to help you...
From what I've seen posted on FB they are not doing them anymore. A couple was contacted that they were chosen then told they have decided to pull the weddings from the show because they were taking too much time.
I heard Pat stopped the walking through the crowd because it took away from one of their most beautiful songs. He did that for the last 2 years and it was time for a change. People were too concerned about where he was in the crowd not even paying attention to the song. Also the event staff had to try to keep up with him the whole time for security reasons. This year he just stands on the stage next to Jimmy playing the guitar and sings the whole song which makes a lot more sense to me. It's easier to appreciate the song without everyone yelling and screaming and trying to jump over each other to get to Pat in the crowd.
Good luck on your proposal!!

Any insider info on how to "get them in the mood" at the concert?
A buddy of mine is a local DJ here and said he is gonna try and get me hooked up with some good tickets so not exactly sure where I'm sitting yet.
Thanks for the heads up on the crowd walk through. Do you happen to know why Pat stopped?
Hey Brock, have you heard anything? It's been a month now. I had the same thought for the Houston,TX (Woodlands,TX) show 9/14. I had a bunch of friends send in emails in the last 24hrs. Now I've seen this thread. I offered Train 3 suggestions, popping the question on stage, backstage (i dont have backstage passes though) or maybe have Train dedicate the song to my girlfriend and I
Brock I dunno. I'm just hopin & prayin my proposal campaign (~50 friends & family) have emailed this site within the last 24hrs with the same subject will be a positive thing and not an "obsessive" thing. I think we just gotta go into this with our hopes at 0 and if something happens, if we hear from them then it'll make a magical moment all the more. i have backup plans though.
Glad you're getting your chance, man! I "heard" you got ahold of them. ;-)
