Carole King and James Taylor add second Boston show

, Staff

Due to overwhelming demand, iconic singer-songwriters Carole King and James Taylor have added a second show in Boston. Tickets went on sale last Saturday for their show at the TD Garden on Saturday, June 19 and quickly sold out. Consequently, the duo will remain in Taylor’s hometown for another show on Sunday, June 20. Tickets for new show, which range in price from $39.50 to $350, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

As previously reported, the idea for the tour was conceived after a series of six performances King and Taylor gave at the Troubadour in Los Angeles in 2007 to celebrate the famed venue’s 50th Anniversary, 37 years after their historic shows at the legendary club. The shows sold out immediately and garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
King and Taylor’s historic performance together at the Troubadour in November 1970 heralded King’s transition to solo stage performer, after penning 22 Top 40 hits for artists ranging from Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman” to the Monkees’ “Pleasant Valley Sunday”, 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 the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Taylor’s most recent album was his 2009 EP Other Covers,a  follow-up to his hit 2008 release Covers. Both are comprised completely of Taylor’s various interpretations of classic songs from Chuck Berry to Leonard Cohen. King’s last studio release was 2001’s Love Makes the World.
