James Announces Apollo Theater Performance And SiriusXM Channel

JT_Apollo_borderJames was Howard Stern’s guest on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern show on Tuesday morning, sitting for a free-wheeling interview that touched on everything from his childhood in North Carolina and signing with the Beatles’ Apple Records in 1968 to his recovery and the new album, Before This World.

Visit for a summary of that conversation and to listen to select clips from their two-hour discussion.

James took the opportunity of this interview to announce two exciting pieces of news: On June 16 (Before This World‘s release date), he and the band will play a special, invite-only concert at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City. That show will be broadcast live on SiriusXM’s new James Taylor Channel, set to launch on May 22. The limited-run channel will feature music from throughout James’s career, classic live recordings and guest DJ’s and more!

SiriusXM listeners will have a chance to win one of 25 pairs to the Apollo show through a series of dedicated listener emails and call-in promotions. More details and complete rules for the sweepstakes can be found at
