For the past few years, renowned singer-songwriter James Taylor has hit the road with his All-Star Band, and they are gearing up again for a set of 2017 dates which includes a stop at Atlanta’s Infinite Energy Arena on Tuesday, July 11. Special guest Bonnie Raitt will join Taylor and his band for the show.

Though Taylor hasn’t released an album since 2015’s Before This World, the record remains a significant achievement in the songwriter’s career: It’s his first No. 1 record. Taylor’s thirteenth studio LP in over a decade, Before This World marks a comeback for Taylor, whose last album of original material, October Road, came out back in 2002. But those years between records weren’t empty. Taylor continued picking up accolades, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015, and Taylor was also a Kennedy Center Honors recipient in 2016. He also released a well-received covers album which earned him two Grammy nominations. His new tour and show is an opportunity to see a legend at the top of his game.

Tickets for James Taylor & His All Star Band go on sale Friday, March 10 at 10 a.m. EST right here on AXS.
