Quick Takes

Troubadours back in action

November 12, 2009|Randy Lewis

The king and queen of reassuring early '70s folk-rock, James Taylor and Carole King, will team up once again for a "Troubadour Reunion" tour that will open March 27 in Melbourne, Australia, and reach Los Angeles in a May 14 stop at the Hollywood Bowl.

The veteran singer-songwriters appeared together for the first time in decades at a 2007 show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood where they had made their debut in 1969. They will be backed by several of the musicians who played with them live and on record the first time around, including guitarist Danny Kortchmar, bassist Lee Sklar and drummer Russ Kunkel.

A handful of shows, mostly in Australia and Japan, are scheduled to be announced today, with additional dates in the U.S. and Europe to be added soon, representatives for the singers said in a statement. Tickets for the first round of shows, including the Hollywood Bowl date, go on sale Nov. 23, with shows in Japan to follow on Dec. 12.
