This summer, James Taylor will be hitting the road for a headlining tour. The "You've Got a Friend" singer will be playing shows all across the U.S. with the backing of his all-star band. They won't be the only ones on the road with Taylor. That's because opening up all shows will be singer-songwriter, Bonnie Raitt.
Taylor and Raitt previously announced they were teaming up to perform four summer concerts. This morning it was revealed 13 more dates have been added to that outing, which now makes it a full-fledged tour.
Pre-sale tickets can be purchased beginning March 6 at James Taylor's website here. In order to access those pre-sale tickets, you must sign up for an account on his website. On March 10 tickets go on sale to the public.
For over 40 years James Taylor has been recording and releasing music. Taylor's first hit single was his 1970 song, "Fire and Rain." Since then he's released a slew of songs that have become classics, such as "You've Got a Friend" and "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)."
Bonnie Raitt has also had a long, and successful career. Her first single to really hit it big was the 1991 song, "Something to Talk About." Over her long career Raitt's put out seventeen studio albums, with the most recent being 2016's Dig In Deep.
