Carole King and James Taylor Troubadour Reunion Comes To An End

07/20/2010
.
Carole King and James Taylor landmark "Troubadour Reunion" tour, comes to a close tonight at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Since the tour kicked off on May 7th in Portland, OR, the "Troubadour Reunion" has been one of the musical events of the summer selling out venues and earning rave reviews from fans and critics alike. In addition, the chart topping CD/DVD Live at the Troubadour from Hear Music/Concord Music Group debuted at #4 on Billboard's Top 200 and remained in the Top 10 for 5 consecutive weeks.

Carole King and James Taylor have reflected on this very special collaboration. Carole told the New York Times, "It's like we went away and had a lifetime of performing and experience, and now we're getting together... But I don't think we would have wanted to wait a whole lot longer than doing it now. This was the time to do it." James added, "Carole said something interesting early on. She said, 'Not only do you want to leave the people wanting more, you want to leave yourself wanting more.' That's really wise. It's smart to know when to quit."

Live at the Troubadour has sold over 400,000 units since its release and shot back to the #1 spot on Amazon.com last week following a feature story on King and Taylor that aired on NPR's "All Things Considered."

Recorded in November of 2007, Live at the Troubadour captures Taylor and King, as well as members of their renowned original band (guitarist Danny Kortchmar, bassist Leland Sklar and drummer Russell Kunkel) historic reunion to mark the revered nightclub's 50th anniversary - the sight of the duo's first and now legendary early 70's performances. The CD/DVD features hits and fan favorites including King's "So Far Away," "It's Too Late," and "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" as well as Taylor's "Carolina In My Mind," "Sweet Baby James," and "Fire And Rain," to name just a few.

They have created some of popular music's most indelible songs, music that resonates across generations. The "Troubadour Reunion" tour has given fans an incredible opportunity to see them together along with their legendary band, vocalists Kate Markowitz, Arnold McCuller, Andrea Zonn (also on violin) and Robbie Kondor on Keyboards/piano/accordion Robbie Kondor.
