JAMES TAYLOR AND CAROLE KING: TROUBADOUR REUNION SHOW
Genre: Music Concert
In November 2007, James Taylor and Carole King, joined by the same Los Angeles band who played with James and Carole when they first appeared at the Troubadour in 1971, re-united for six shows to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary LA club. James, Carole and the band who became The Section—Danny Kortchmar, Lee Sklar and Russ Kunkel— together performed a remarkable set of songs. Peter Asher, who was deeply involved in the original 1971 show, produced the recordings of the six-show reunion; Martyn Atkins directed the filming with a nimble crew to capture what has become a much-anticipated and historic program. This six-show reunion inspired the idea for the 2010 Carole King and James Taylor Troubadour Reunion Tour, which became one of the biggest tours of the year.
The world tour kicked off in Melbourne, Australia on March 27, 2010 and travelled to New Zealand and Japan before going to North America and Europe. This once-in-a-lifetime event brings together two of the most beloved singer/songwriters for a rare concert experience. The set includes a breadth of material including songs they performed during their 1969 debut show at the Troubadour, which helped propel them both to the world stage.
