Seattle – Music Events! 3

This concert at Seattle Center featuring Carole King and James Taylor is one to plan for if you will be in Seattle at the right time, because these performers are legends. Tickets should sell out fast, so decide about them as soon as you can!

Note: this is Mother’s Day week-end, so plan accordingly; you could include your Mom, too.

Carole King and James Taylor provided an essential positive, healing counter-point during the acrimonious Vietnam War years. It is timeless, beautiful musical mastery.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime event which marks a rare concert experience by bringing two of the most beloved singer-songwriters on tour together for the first time in four decades!

North American dates begin on May 7, 2010 in Portland, Oregon, if Seattle sells out quickly (but Portland will, too). The tour will travel to more than 20 major venues and cities nationwide.

The idea for the tour was conceived after a series of six performances Taylor and King gave at the Troubadour in Los Angeles in 2007 to celebrate its 50th Anniversary. The shows sold out immediately and garnered rave reviews from all echelons.

Their original bandmates guitarist Danny “Kootch” Kortchmar, drummer Russ Kunkel and bassist Lee Sklar, famous in their own right as “The Section”, will join King and Taylor.

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”. Meanwhile, then 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 also the Songwriters Hall of Fame. You are indeed witnessing those who helped forge modern music.
