New York, NY (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Ticket Down announces that the summer concert schedule for 2014 is already one that features many of the top names in music across all the genres including Katy Perry, Jason Aldean, One Republic and more, and it just got even better with the announcement that James Taylor would be hitting the road for a large tour this summer. Taylor, the 65-year-old is one of the most versatile artists in the business and is one of the most appreciated musicians of all time. His 2014 tour will take Taylor around the world beginning in the United States and concluding with two shows in London, England at the Royal Albert Hall.
Taylor released several singles in 1969 before finally catching his big break in the United States with "Fire and Rain." The song, which was released on Sweet Baby James, reached as high as the No. 3 spot on the American singles charts and No. 7 on the American adult contemporary charts. Since then, he has released dozens of singles, many of which charting in the top 10 in the States including "You’ve Got a Friend," which was his lone No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts.
At this point in his career, Taylor has released 16 studio albums, many of which have been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling at least one million copies. Among those records that have sold more than a million copies include "Sweet Baby James," "Mud Slide and the Blue Horizon," "JT, Flag," "Dad Loves His Work," "That’s Why I’m Here," "Never Die Young," "New Moon Shine," "Hourglass" and "October Road." His most recent release, "Covers," came out in 2008 and peaked at the No. 4 spot on the American albums chart.
Taylor was a 2000 inductee to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and has won five Grammy Awards in his career including "Best Pop Vocal Performance" twice, "Best Pop Album," "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance," and "Best Country Collaboration with Vocals," for his single with Alison Krauss, "How’s the World Treating You."
The summer tour will kick off a the Moda Center in Portland, OR, and will also visit some of the most popular venues in music including the US Airways Center in Phoenix, AZ. and PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, NC in the States, and The O2 in Dublin, Ireland, LG Arena in Birmingham, UK and Brighton Centre in Brighton, UK.
Taylor is one of the most popular folk, country and rock and roll artists in the history of music and will likely see many of these venues sell out quickly. Despite not having released any new albums in more than five years, his music is still relevant and popular with his diehard fans. Many of his most popular songs are still heard on the radio today and the younger generation are fast turning into James Taylor fans.
