Carole King‘s 2016 concert at Hyde Park in London will make its way to the United States this summer with a one-night only event on July 11 showing a film of the event at theaters across the country. Billboard is exclusively premiering a first look at the film.
Carole King: Tapestry – Captured Live at Hyde Park London will be playing at about 600 U.S. movie theaters and will showcase King’s first U.K. concert in 27 years, where she performed her iconic album Tapestry in its entirety for the first time ever. It includes guest appearances from Elton John, Graham Nash, Tom Hanks, James Taylor, David Crosby, Lou Adler, Danny “Kootch” Kortchmar, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.
The Fathom Events and AEG Presents cinema event will also feature an interview with King and a special introduction by iconic WCBS-FM radio host Scott Shannon.
Performance highlights include King’s daughter, Louise Goffin, joining her on “Where You Lead,” video of a younger King accompanying the multi-Grammy Award-winner on “(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman” and Cassidy Janson and the London cast of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical joining King onstage for “I Feel the Earth Move.” As well as Tapestry songs, King also performed hits from her 1960s partnership with Gerry Goffin and other solo favorites such as “The Loco-Motion” and “Take Good Care of My Baby.”
“It’s a pleasure and a privilege to bring Carole King’s historic album-themed concert Tapestry to fans throughout the nation,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said in a statement. “Tapestry is a career-defining album that continues to wow listeners more than 45 years after its release, and the rave reviews that followed this concert are a true testament to that fact.”
