The new James Taylor concert is finally here.
On Saturday, June 6th, the legendary musician and singer will headline Madison Square Garden in New York City for the first time.
While fans are eager to see the band perform live, the tour itself will not take place in the United States.
Instead, it will take place at a brand new venue, the Graceland Tours.
The venue, a multi-level facility built by the former New York Times building, will host concerts, exhibitions, concerts, and other events throughout the year.
A few weeks ago, we reported that the tour will also be simulcast on Twitch, the platform’s streaming service, for a limited time, starting at 11:59 p.m.
EST on June 6.
Here’s a rundown of what to expect during the tour, starting with the most important details: 1.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday, June 4th at 10 a.m., but you can still buy tickets before that time.
Ticket prices will be $99 each, which includes admission to Madison Square Gardens for two, as well as admission to all of Taylor’s performances.
All ticket holders will be able to purchase tickets for $49 each, a reduction from the $59 each they were able to get for the Madison Square Tour.
Those who pre-order tickets will also receive a limited edition Taylor merch box.
Fans who preorder before June 4 will receive a free copy of Taylor II, his second studio album.
The tour will take on a different format than the previous two tours.
The Graceland tours have always been extremely collaborative, with the band’s producers and songwriters working on music for the whole tour.
That’s a change from the previous tours, which were all a matter of finding the right material.
“We didn’t really think of this tour as a collaborative thing,” says co-producer James Taylor.
“This was a collaborative effort, with a lot of people working on a lot more than one track.”
In the past, the group’s songs have been the focus of much of the discussion, with Taylor writing songs like “Love Will Always Find You,” “Criminal,” and “Don’t Stop Me Now,” while the other musicians have been mostly left to their own devices.
“For this tour, I wanted to put all of the music together for one single performance,” Taylor says.
“The music is pretty unique in that you can hear the songs on their own, and then all of those elements will be put together in the same way.”
Taylor will perform two songs per set, and each song will be accompanied by an accompanying video.
The show will be broadcast live on Twitch starting at 10:00 a.b.m, with both Taylor and his longtime collaborator Paul Simon on stage.
Fans can watch the live stream on Twitch by signing in as the “James Taylor” account and then selecting “Stream.”
Taylor is also offering a special livestream where he will be performing an extended version of “The Times I’ve Lived.”
The livestream will be available until June 10 at 11 p.ms.
ET, so make sure you’re on Twitch as soon as you can!
Taylor will have a full band for the tour.
The rest of the band will play an extended set, but there will be no cover of any of Taylor, Simon, or their current band, St. Vincent.
The live stream will feature only Taylor’s vocals, and no other guests will be featured.
Tickets for the Gracland tour will be on sale for $99.
Tickets can be purchased at the Graclands ticket page, which can be found here.
The price drops to $99 for the show, but those who preordered tickets will receive one free copy Taylor II merch box, and $49 for the limited edition box.
Fans will be treated to a brand-new stage.
The Madison Square Tours stage is the same as the stage on the previous tour, and will feature the same visual touches that fans have come to expect from the Graceline.
The stage will have all of its original lighting, including the LED screens, LED projection, LED lights, and LED projections.
“I’m excited about this new stage,” Taylor told Rolling Stone.
“It’s been so long since we’ve been on stage, and this stage is different from the other ones.
It’s more of a real, live space, which is great because I like to be able for these shows to really feel like they’re happening in the real world.”
Taylor has been planning the tour for months.
“From the moment I got back from England [to attend college], I was trying to figure out what the next steps were going to be, but the tour just kind of happened,” Taylor said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, confirming that he has been working on the music and touring in secret
