Organizers announced the performers for the American Express golf tournament in January.
Four-time GRAMMY© Award-winning musician and two-time Country Music Association (CMA) “Entertainer of the Year” Keith Urban and three-time GRAMMY© Award-winning pop rock band Train will comprise the musical lineup for its 2024 Concert Series on the PGA WEST Stadium Course driving range during the Coachella Valley’s annual PGA TOUR golf tournament.
Urban, a 2023 Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, will open The American Express Concert Series upon the conclusion of second-round play on Friday, Jan. 19. A singer, guitarist and songwriter who has celebrated nine consecutive gold, platinum or multi-platinum albums, Urban’s list of major awards also includes 13 CMA awards, 15 American Country Music (ACM) awards, three American Music Awards (AMAs) and two People’s Choice Awards.
Diamond-selling band Train will take the stage after the tournament’s third round on Saturday, Jan. 20. Since its formation in 1994, Train has had 14 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100, 13 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, and has sold more than 10 million albums and 30 million tracks worldwide. The global hitmakers have earned multiple gold, platinum, and diamond-certified records as well as three GRAMMY Awards, two Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors.

“The annual American Express Concert Series will have our fans eager to rock out on the weekend, and it continues to make The American Express one of the most entertaining events on the PGA TOUR,” said Pat McCabe, Executive Director of The American Express. “We are excited to welcome Keith Urban and Train to the tournament.
