James Taylor is about to embark on an extensive tour of the U.S. and Canada, including a stop at Carnegie Hall in New York City, two nights at Tanglewood and back-to-back stops in Binghamton and Syracuse.
Taylor’s tour takes him coast to coast and into Canada, kicking off on April 13 in Lubbock, Texas and closing out on Aug. 3 with a sold-out show at the iconic Fenway Park in Boston. He joins a cast of top musicians, including Yo-Yo Ma, Renée Fleming and Itzhak Perlman, on May 5 for Carnegie Hall’s 125th Anniversary Gala celebration. He returns to Tanglewood’s Koussevitzky Music Shed for two nights to celebrate the Fourth of July, as usual. He heads back to New York on July 29 to play the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, followed by July 30 at the Oncenter War Memorial Arena in Syracuse.
Singer/songwriter James Taylor first broke through with his 1971 hit “Fire and Rain.” His cover of Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” brought him his first No. 1 record. The hall of fame musician has won numerous Grammy Awards and, in 2015, was bestowed with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama.
Tickets for the first half of his tour are currently on sale. Tickets for his Binghamton and Syracuse shows go on sale on Friday, March 11 at 10 a.m. The full list of tour dates can be found on his website.
