James Taylor Announces First U.S. Tour Dates For New Album, ‘Before This World’

By Philip Cosores

With James Taylor recently announcing his first album in 13 years, it is appropriate that the songwriting legend now reveal the first tour dates in support of the new effort.

The U.S. tour, currently only lasting a month, will hit big venues, ranging from PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania for the tour kickoff on July 2 to Fenway Park (home of the Red Sox) in Boston for the final show.

The run doesn’t stray far from the East Coast, drifting no more south than South Carolina and no further west than Indianapolis, so it would be surprising if additional dates aren’t eventually added, especially as most of the announced shows are for smaller cities and not the typical tour stops.

Check out the dates for James Taylor’s new tour below and look for his album, Before This World, on June 16 via Concord Records.
