James Taylor Announces Summer Tour With Bonnie Raitt

In a sequel to last summer's tour, the two long-time friends and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will perform cross-country again this summer.

Fans of James Taylor rejoice — the singer-songwriter has just announced another summer tour for 2018.

In a sequel to last summer’s cross-country performances, Taylor will once again be accompanied by longtime friend and fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt. This will be a continuation of sorts for Raitt, who performed over 75 times worldwide throughout 2016, in support of her 20th — yes, 20th — album Dig In Deep.

Taylor’s most recent work, and first studio album in fifteen years, Before This World came out in 2015. In total, the two singer songwriters have over thirty completed projects, so there should be no shortage of material for the tour’s set-lists.


The tour, which seems to skimp on East Coast dates, kicks off in Florida in May, and includes two back-to-back dates at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. To see Taylor and Raitt, check out the dates below.  Tickets go on sale at January 19 at 10 a.m. local time on Taylors’ site.
