James Taylor Adds Tanglewood, Louisville, Raleigh Tour Dates
Folk country singer James Taylor firms up plans to team up with his son Ben Taylor for a spring tour in 2011 that will stretch from late February to early April. The tour is fueled with more stops confirmed as part of the itinerary including two stops in Michigan and Virginia, and single stops in Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Kentucky, North Carolina, Iowa and Florida. The tour is set to kick off in Tulsa, OK on February 26 and will close on April 2 in Toledo, OH.
Meanwhile, the senior Taylor will also be going on a tour of his own with dates scattered between the months of December 2010, April, May, June and July 2011. He is set to perform at the Boston Symphony Hall on December 13, New York’s Carnegie Hall for four nights – April 12, 20, May 6 and 9, and also four days at Tanglewood in Lenox, MA on June 30, July 1, 3 and 4. All these shows continue to support Taylor’s 2008 Grammy Award nominated album “Covers”, which hit the 4th spot in the Billboard 200 upon its release.
The younger Taylor on the other hand, who is James’ son to country music superstar Carly Simon, also has his hands full with his fourth studio effort, “Listening”, set to hit the shelves early next year. The said album is Ben Taylor’s follow-up to “The Legend of Kung Folk, Part 1 (The Killing Bite)” which came out in 2008.
