The Grammy Award-winning rock singer-songwriter James Taylor will head to Fenway Park once again next summer for a special headlining set with his all star band.
The concert, set to take place on June 21, 2020, will also feature guest artists Brandi Carlile and Shawn Colvin. Taylor has played concerts at the ballpark in the past and sang the Nation Anthem before Red Sox games several times. This latest gig will come in support of Taylors’ forthcoming eighteenth studio record, which is due early next year via Fantasy Records.
Fans can score presale tickets via Taylors’ website starting tomorrow. Upcoming dates on Taylors’ full U.S. tour will be announced in early 2020.
Taylor, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, is one of the best-selling artists of all time, garnering attention in the ’70s with hits like “Fire and Rain” and “You’ve Got A Friend” with Carole King. While his original work shines on its own, he’s also known for covers, like Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It IS (To Be Loved By You” and Jimmy Jones/Otis Blackwell’s “Handy Man.” His forthcoming LP, which has not been named yet, will follow 2015’s Before This World.
Aside from Taylor, Fenway Park will host two other major concerts next year. Green Day will take the stage on August 27 as a part of the “Hella Mega Tour” with Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and The Interrupters, followed by Billy Joel, who is back at the ballpark for the seventh consecutive year.
