Live Nation Presents James Taylor and Carole King's "Troubadour Reunion" World Tour 2010 at the St. Pete Times Forum June 6
Tickets on Sale January 23, 2010 at 10:00 a.m.
Tampa Bay – Iconic musicians James Taylor and Carole King will embark on a “Troubadour Reunion” world tour, presented by Live Nation. The world tour will kick off in Melbourne, Australia on March 27, 2010 and will travel to New Zealand and Japan before coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida on June 6, 2010 at 8:00 p.m.
The idea for the "Troubadour Reunion" tour came together in 2007 after Taylor and King performed at the famed Los Angeles venue for the first time since 1969 to celebrate the Troubadour's 50th Anniversary. The shows sold out immediately and garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Now, nearly four decades after helping define the singer/songwriter movement, King and Taylor will tour together with their original bandmates: guitarist Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar, drummer Russ Kunkel and bassist Lee Sklar, famous in their own right as "The Section".
Carole King performed with James Taylor at the Troubadour in November 1969. This historic show marked King's debut as a solo artist after penning 22 Top 40 hits for artists ranging from Aretha Franklin to the Monkees, while James was supporting his self-titled Apple Records release featuring classics such as "Carolina In My Mind" and "Something In The Way She Moves." Both have since become multi-platinum-selling artists, GRAMMY® winners, and members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
