The concert will feature a selection of King and Taylor’s most beloved hits. From Carole King’s groundbreaking album Tapestry to her early collaborations with Gerry Goffin like “Up on the Roof”, and James Taylor’s classics such as “Fire and Rain”, “How Sweet it is (to be loved by you)”, “Carolina in my Mind”, and “Shower the People”.

Throughout the event, Conway and Coggan will share insights into the long-lasting friendship of these music legends, illustrating how they have profoundly influenced each other’s lives and careers.

Reflecting on her connection to King’s music, Conway stated that she has felt an intrinsic link to Tapestry since purchasing it in 1971:

I bought a copy of Tapestry in 1971. I remember going down the street with a couple of dollars clutched in my hand and handing them over at the local record store. I listened intently, I knew every word, every melody & counter melody, and 53 years later it has stood the test of time with effortless grace.

Similarly, Coggan expressed their deep affinity for Taylor’s music:

Taylor’s baritone is so comforting, familiar, warm and friendly, but it is so much more than the voice. He is a superb storyteller whose songs are enduringly relevant and take you on a journey, in a very personal way, and I cannot wait to do just that with our audiences.

Tickets for The Music of Carole King & James Taylor will commence sale on Friday 26 April 2024. To join the waitlist for the earliest access to tickets and to find out specific booking information for your state, visit the show’s official website.
