James Taylor

August 31

Celebrate at Tanglewood:
James Taylor Live in Concert

Koussevitzky Music Shed
Lenox, MA
8:00 p.m.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and concerns for the health and safety of all, James Taylor has rescheduled his performance originally planned for Sunday July 4, 2021 at Tanglewood to Tuesday August 31, 2021. Taylor, who regularly performs to sold-out audiences at Tanglewood, has returned to the 4th of July festival 27 times since his first performance there in 1974. We're sure the August 31st concert will be equally as good as previous years!
