Two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are heading to St. John’s this Spring!
James Taylor & His All-Star Band with special guest Bonnie Raitt and her band have announced a Coast to Coast Canadian Tour. The tour kicks off in Victoria, British Columbia on April 14, 2020 and includes 12 stops across the country ending in St. John’s, at Mile One Centre on May 5, 2020.
Taylor and Raitt’s highly anticipated Coast to Coast Canadian Tour celebrate a decades-long friendship. Recent performances in the US have earned rave reviews. The Minneapolis Star Tribune called the show “an unforgettable evening.”
Taylor will also be releasing a one-of-a-kind music and storytelling experience entitled, Break Shot in early 2020 on Audible. Break Shot is Taylor’s first-ever spoken-word performance. Break Shot is a deeply personal and authentic audio-only memoir featuring personal reflections on his childhood, family life and early days of his career. Music and songs will be woven throughout.
Bonnie Raitt is more than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, she has become an institution in American music. Born to a musical family, the ten-time Grammy winner, who Rolling Stone named as both one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” and one of the “100
Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. After 20 years as a cult favorite, she broke through to the top in the early 90s with her GRAMMY-award winning albums, Nick of Time and Luck of the Draw, which featured hits such as, “Something To Talk About” and “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” Bonnie Raitt recently released her new album entitled, Dig In Deep. This release includes songs that continue to personify what it means for her to stay creative, adventurous and daring as she has over the course of a legendary career.
