LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — James Taylor and Jackson Browne announced their planned North American tour has been rescheduled for next year due to the pandemic.
“Disappointing as it is to have to reschedule these shows, our first tour together, James/Jackson and I look forward with intense excitement to next spring when, hopefully, we’ll finally get to set this thing in motion. We were hoping to reschedule the tour a bit sooner but the experts we consulted have advised waiting for a full year. We thank you all for your patience and understanding and are really encouraged by the majority of you who are holding onto your tickets. We WILL honor them.” the two legendary singer-songwriters said in a joint statement.
The tour, which featured Jackson Browne as a guest, was originally planned to start on May 15th at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, with dates through early summer before the tour concluded at the BB&T Center in Camden, New Jersey.
The run is now scheduled to kick off on May 14th, at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, and wrap at Northwell Health at Jones Beach, NY on July 10th.
Taylor’s June 21, 2020 concert at Fenway Park with Brandi Carlile and Shawn Colvin has also been rescheduled and the new 2021 date will be announced after Major League Baseball settles on a new schedule for 2021.
As well, Taylor said there will be an announcement soon about his currently postponed Canadian tour with Bonnie Raitt.
