Iconic recording artists Carole King and James Taylor will play together for a "Troubadour Reunion," a once-in-a-lifetime event marking a rare concert experience bringing two of the most beloved singer-songwriters on tour together - intimate and in the round - for the first time in four decades. The idea for the tour was conceived after a series of six performances Taylor and King gave at the Troubadour in Los Angeles in 2007 to celebrate the famed venue's 50th Anniversary. The shows sold out immediately and garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Joining King and Taylor on tour will be their original band mates guitarist Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar, drummer Russ Kunkel and bassist Lee Sklar, famous in their own right as "The Section." Also joining The Section will be: Rudy Guess, Robbie Kondor, Arnold McCuller, Kate Markowitz and Andrea Zonn. King and Taylor's historic performance together at the Troubadour in November 1970 heralded King's transition to solo stage performer, after penning 22 Top 40 hits for artists ranging from Aretha Franklin's '(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman' to the Monkees' 'Pleasant Valley Sunday,' while Taylor was supporting his self-titled Apple Records release featuring classics such as 'Carolina In My Mind' and 'Something In The Way She Moves.' Both have since become multi-platinum-selling artists, GRAMMY(R) winners, and members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
