SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Grammy Award-winning pop rock band Train said Tuesday it is planning a string of six hometown club shows in San Francisco.

The tour is in anticipation of the "Hey, Soul Sister" singers' upcoming album "California 37," due out April 17.

The first of the San Francisco dates will be April 10 at Cafe Du Nord. The mini-tour is to finish up April 15 at the Fillmore.

A portion of the ticket sales proceeds will go to the San Francisco charity Family House, which provides temporary housing to families of seriously ill children, the group said in a news release.

The band's lead singer, Pat Monahan, is to perform the national anthem at NASCAR's Daytona 500 race Sunday.
