James is thrilled to announce two shows with his All-Star Band, the official opening of the brand-new 5,000+ seat MGM Music Hall at Fenway in Boston, MA, on August 29 and 30! The JamesTaylor.com presale for these new dates will begin Monday, June 13, at 10 am ET.
“James’s connection to the Red Sox, Fenway Park, and the broader Fenway Sports Group family has been a constant…,” said Red Sox President Sam Kennedy. “…We can’t wait to have James perform at the MGM Music Hall, a place we hope will stand for something greater than brick and mortar in the music world.”

Please remember: There will be a limited number of presale tickets available to JamesTaylor.com members, which can sell out quickly — sometimes within the first 30 minutes. The number of tickets available for the fan presale is not in James’s personal control but his hope in offering the fan presale is to give fans the first opportunity to purchase great seats. If you are unable to purchase tickets in the presale, you will have a second chance during the public sale. We apologize in advance for any frustration.
