Get up close with James Taylor, Carole King

From a Shore Fire Media press release that just popped into my inbox:

Carole King and James Taylor are offering fans the opportunity-of-a-lifetime, to see two musical icons up-close-and-personal with 'intimate and in the round' Stage Seats on their Troubadour Reunion Tour. The VIP Stage Seats were designed as tables for two surrounding the center stage performance. The innovative design recreates the intimacy of a vintage nightclub within the high-energy atmosphere of a modern arena performance--paying tribute to Carole King and James Taylor's legendary 1970 performances at L.A.'s famed Troubadour club.

All VIP Stage Seat Packages benefit established charities, including the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Alliance for the Wild Rockies, which Ms. King and Mr. Taylor have long championed--plus more than 90 additional national and local charitable organizations. The VIP Stage Seat Packages are estimated to raise over $1 million for charity and are available for 37 of the Troubadour Reunion North American concerts.

VIP Stage Seat Packages are available exclusively at

VIP Stage Seat Packages include:

* One Stage Seat (arranged in tables for two)
* Special access to Carole King and James Taylor's sound check session
* Pre-performance private reception with complimentary wine, beer and hors d'oeuvres
* Special Event Tour Laminate
* Commemorative Troubadour Reunion Tour Book

"When we first talked about reuniting, we knew we wanted to bring the Troubadour to life," said Mr. Taylor. "These Stage Seats are one small way to pay homage. We also saw a national reunion tour as an opportunity to support the great work that charities are doing all across the U.S."

"Creating this unique stage seating for charity was very exciting for me-- and I felt, a very natural extension of my collaboration with James. We are both as passionate about the importance of giving back as we are about our music. And we're thrilled to have the opportunity to positively impact so many outstanding social and environmental causes with this tour," said Ms. King.

While the VIP Stage Seating packages are just now going on public sale, limited fan club pre-sales--in just a matter of days--raised over $600,000 for some of the nation's most admired non-profits, including Autism Speaks, Habitat for Humanity and many more. These one-of-a-kind Stage Seat Charity Packages are now available for sale to the general public, and can be purchased by visiting

James Taylor is an Alien! He came down from the planet Zefrob and has emerged into a music career only to scan our brains. He wears a beanie cap to cover his Antennae. Stop listening to JT NOW!
