Iconic recording artists Carole King and James Taylor are taking to the world stage together for the first time in nearly 40 years. This once-in-a-lifetime event brings together two of the most beloved singer/songwriters for a rare concert experience. The Troubadour Reunion Tour comes to town on the 29th March at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
The two-hour shows will feature a breadth of material including songs they performed during their 1969 debut show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, which helped propel them both to the world stage.
The idea for the ‘Troubadour Reunion’ came together in 2007 after King and Taylor performed at the famed Los Angeles venue for the first time since 1970 to celebrate the Troubadour’s 50th Anniversary. The shows sold-out immediately and garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
Now Australian fans will be able to experience what was created on that magical evening in 2007. Nearly four decades after helping define the singer-songwriter movement, King and Taylor will tour together with the original band-mates 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 Taylor 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 Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see two of the world’s most renowned singer songwriters perform together on stage.
