CONCERT REVIEW: King, Taylor pairing serves up a master class | The...

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

A jam-packed audience felt transported as the protagonist of Up On The Roof last night when Carole King, the song's co-author, joined with James Taylor in the Value City Arena: "When this old world starts getting me down/And people are just too much for me to face/I climb way up to the top of the stairs/And all my cares just drift right into ...

Oh, my gosh!! I attended the concert in Kansas City, MO (it was sold out). I was there with my 20 year old daughter, her 21 year old boyfriend and my 30 year old nephew. We are all in agreement that it was the best concert that we had ever attended. I was in the front row and at one point James Taylor pointed to me and for about 30 seconds was jumping up and down with me from the stage. I was ecstatic! If you want to read a really great review, go to www.kansascity.com . The review date is May 23, 2010. The article is titled "James Taylor and Carole King at the Sprint Center: How sweet it was." The review speaks of each song being met with thunderous applause that threatened to overwhelm the performance at times. It goes on to say that when returning to the stage for the encore, King took the stage looking at the crowd in wonder, mouth agape. The last sentence of the review read... But for the fans present the question wasn't, "What took you so long?" Rather, it was, "When are you coming back?" There were several times during the performance that King uttered the words, "Kansas City---Kansas City" as if she was overcome with emotion (perhaps even stunned) at the obvious affection of the audience toward both performers. This concert was a dream come true for me personally----so much so that I will be in attendance at the St. Louis, MO performance!! Indeed---HOW SWEET IT WAS!!!
Sounds like this show was all about you!!!

James Taylor & Carol King Troubadour

James & Carol played a near perfect set list to a sold out crowd at the Value City Arena on Sunday, May 30th. Both Carol and James voices were in perfect harmony throughout the concert.

The stage was spectacular. Center of the floor, turning slowly, allowing every single ticket holder the privilege of seeing the concert. The lighting and sound system, perfect.

The band members are the same as troubadour concert in 1970. Each member is famous in their own right. We enjoyed the love shown between the band members and Carole & James. Everyone was full of enthusiasm and love of the music.

The graphics above the stage were very nostalgic. Enjoyed by many, showing James & Carole’s lifetime musical achievements as well as their personal photos. Very memorable for those of us that have followed their careers since the 70’s

You could not help but feel the love and admiration that James and Carole feel for each other and the other members of the band.

This concert is recommended by the reviewer. Suzie Kraner, Carroll Ohio
