BILLBOARD.COM — James Taylor & Jackson Browne Tour Is Back On: See Rescheduled Dates
By Taylor Mims
James Taylor & His All-Star Band have revealed new dates for their postponed 2020 tour with Jackson Browne. The new tour dates will kick off July 29 at United Center in Chicago.
“We want to thank all those who have graciously held onto their tickets; we appreciate your continued patience as we navigate these unchartered waters,” Taylor and Browne said in a joint statement. “We didn’t want to have to cancel this tour that we’ve been waiting so long to perform together, so we’ve been working to get these dates rescheduled to a time period when the U.S. is reopened and safe to gather for a concert.”
The two acts were originally scheduled to tour together from May to July 2020, but those shows were postponed due to the pandemic. Taylor and Browne’s run becomes one of the first major arena tours to reschedule following the COVID outbreak.
The duo added, “Of course we will be keeping a close eye and abide with all health and safety protocols throughout each venue and state. We can’t wait to get back on stage and see you out there soon.”
The tour will now close out on the West Coast in Washington and Oregon followed by three dates in California. After his run with Browne, Taylor will hit the road with Bonnie Raitt for a Canadian trek launching Sept. 12 in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
Previously purchased tickets will be honored for all the rescheduled dates and fans are encouraged to hold onto their tickets. For fans who cannot attend the new dates, tour organizers ask that they reach out to point of purchase for information on refunds.
