Live Nation Press Release

James Taylor & His All-Star Band will perform live at Darien Lake Amphitheater on Tuesday, June 25. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 23, at www.LiveNation.com.

As a recording and touring artist, Taylor has touched people with his warm baritone voice and distinctive style of guitar-playing for more than 50 years, while setting a precedent to which countless young musicians have aspired. Over the course of his celebrated songwriting and performing career, he has sold more than 100 million albums, earning Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum awards since the release of his self-titled debut album in 1968.

In 2015, Taylor released “Before This World,” the first-ever No. 1 album of his illustrious career. He has won multiple Grammy Awards, has been inducted into both the Rock & Roll and the prestigious Songwriters halls of fame and, in February 2006, The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences selected him its MUSICARES Person of the Year.

Taylor was also awarded the distinguished Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government and the National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama in 2012. In November of 2015, he was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor; and in December of 2016, Taylor received the Kennedy Center Honors, which are presented annually to individuals who have enriched American culture by distinguished achievement in the performing arts.

In early 2020, Taylor released “Break Shot,” a deeply personal and authentic audio-only memoir detailing his first 21 years. He also released his newest album, “American Standard” – his 19th studio album – which earned him the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album (and gave him the honor of being the first artist to have a Billboard Top 10 album in each of the past six decades).

Over the past few years, Taylor has toured extensively in Europe, Canada and the U.S., and this spring he will embark on a tour with stops in Tokyo, Manila, Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii.
